So when our ends come up, we do the math and hit the mall to repent

from Kembe X – X Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even if people are broke or in debt, they still end up buying new things they don’t need just because they’ve been programmed (from record labels and music videos) to believe that they always need the newest item. Kembe is pointing out that even if they feel guilty about it, they still ultimately end up going to the mall and buying it anyway.
