Dr. Phil told me that I can sell crack or hit the army

from Jay Electronica – Dear Moleskine Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dr. Phil McGraw is an american psychologist, who has his own self-title TV show.
He often speaks of the problems in America, and the ways they can be solved.

Of course, Phil has never made this statement. Instead, Jay uses him as a symbol to represent white America, who Jay believes to place blacks as underdogs, making it difficult for them to support themselves without either joining the army, or selling drugs.
