So they try to say I couldn't live my dream like Martin
Cause they know I'm from the middle like Malcolm

from XV – Zombieland Rule 32 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

XV is calling out the haters who said he wouldn’t accomplish his dreams- referring to Martain Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

He is also referring to being from the mid west in Kansas and comparing it to the TV show Malcolm in the Middle.

The Malcolm part, however, goes two ways. Because Malcolm X and MLK are looked at as opposites on how they got things done. Vizzy has used this before in Famous.
