from Rick Ross (Ft. Nas) – Triple Beam Dreams Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The term “bastardized” serves a literal meaning here: this nation has made many people, particularly young black people, bastards, be it through their fathers being killed, or through their fathers walking out on them.

Partially because of this level of deception from their own fathers, people in the hood tend to carry guns to protect themselves.
