I wonder if I'm just a villain, dealing my morals away

from Kendrick Lamar – Kush & Corinthians (His Pain) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lamar wonders whether becoming famous is changing his perspective and lessening his self-worth. He wonders if prayer, mentioned in the above line, is used as a excuse for doing anything he wants. Saints are often sinners calling themselves faithful to hide their sin.

Kendrick is afraid that religion is a lie, and that’s he’s devoting his life to wrong causes. He wonders if maybe religion is actually evil, and so when he prays, he’s just a villain “dealing his morals away.”
