Even when society break even, I'll break rules

from Ab-Soul (Ft. Black Hippy, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q) – Black Lip Bastard (Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When society breaks even or turns into anarchy, laws and rules of any form will have no significance. Kendrick is saying that even when there are no rules he will still break rules because he will achieve ground-breaking heights through his music unlike any other

If society were to “break even”, then all good and bad things, justice/injustice etc., would have evened out. Even in this average world, however, where things are okay on the whole, Kendrick would still be breaking rules, putting it back into the negative.
