A Bible in my pocket I'm walkin' like it's a gun on me
So when I catch a fade they know to put more than one on me
Fear no evil, I can still see Regals pullin' up

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. BJ The Chicago Kid & J. Cole) – Shock The World Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Catching a fade normally means shooting someone in the head with a bullet, but instead Kendrick’s shooting them there with knowledge and wisdom. His Bible is his weapon and he’s killing the ignorance with it. A fade is also a wide receiver route and you would put more than one cover on the man if he is repeatedly catching them.

He’s said in interviews that he’s been though a lot of Average Joe moments. Having Buick Regals pull up on him was probably one of them.
