Ministers tried to save me
How I'm gonna listen when I don't even hear God?

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. GLC) – Poe Man's Dreams (His Vice) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Why would Kendrick listen to a man teaching God’s word if he doesn’t listen to God either?

This might also mean God isn’t a voice that he can hear period. In the song “Faith,” he describes his struggle with believing if God exists or not.
