Street-smart and I’m book smart

from Kanye West (Ft. Flux Pavilion & Jay Z) – Who Gon Stop Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Street smarts = surviving in the streets/the world
Book smarts = traditional education from books and schools

Jay-Z even released a book last year in which some of his rhymes were “decoded.” Rap Genius had been on the grind way before…

This is one way Jay is similar to The Office’s Michael Scott:

Michael Scott: Ryan is book smart. I’m street smart… and book smart.
