I know that people wouldn't usually rap this
But I got the facts to back this
Just last year, Chicago had over 600 caskets
Man, killing's some wack shit
Oh, I forgot, 'cept for when niggas is rapping

from Kanye West – Everything I Am Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye wants no part of the gangsta lifestyle or image and people talk trash about him because of it. This is ironic and sort of wack because the gangsta image and everything it stands for (e.g.—killing) is a lot of what is wrong with society.
