Get your intel right, your intelligence is irrelevant

from Joey BADA$$ (Ft. Capital STEEZ) – Survival Tactics Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Military intel is used to direct and exploit the best possible tactics to be successful in certain missions in the army, navy, etc. Joey is so advanced that even if you were to battle him with intel directing you, you’d still lose.

This might also be a reference to the increased focus on gathering “facts”, (intel), from Internet and whatnot (and especially from biased, manipulative sources) rather than figuring them out by oneself, (intelligence). Stating that “intelligence” is irrelevant, he might be referring to a change in society towards indifference and plain, boring everyday knowledge without any big secrets to be figured out simply because some powerful person has done it for you on beforehand.
