How can an angel forever live in sin

from BJ The Chicago Kid (Ft. Kendrick Lamar) – The World is a Ghetto Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kendrick caps the verse with a open-ended question: How can one remain innocent while living amongst so much sin?

Considering the situation of life in the ghetto and following the given examples of some of the hardships Kendrick asks how could anyone arise out of the rubble of our nation’s ghettos with their innocence intact?

Not even an angel would make it out of the streets without being tainted by sin
