That's why I'm backdooring you motherfuckas

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Gunplay) – Cartoon & Cereal Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s playing with the last line about the ‘ghetto life’ being an error in the system, so he is now backdooring (hacking) the system to get around what is blocking him from progressing in life.

The term “Backdooring”,also used by his fellow TDE mate Ab-Soul in Terrorist Threats, serves as a description of sneaking into the “game” (hip hop) influencing black youth, even if they are unwilling to let him in the “front door”. This also ties in the previous lines, his music will teach “things WE will never learn soon” whether we like it or not.

So keep an open mind and clinched cheeks!
