And so I walk alone with a cross and a diamond stone
I'm a diamond inside the rough that's too mighty for maricons

from Rick Ross (Ft. Gunplay, Kendrick Lamar, Meek Mill, Stalley & Wale) – Power Circle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Rather than relying on the corrupt religious authorities lambasted above, Kendrick is solitary about his religious concerns. He spoke to MTV about his feelings regarding matters of the spirit:

I wouldn’t say I’m the most religious person, neither were both of my parents. I always do quote-unquote religious songs or whatever you want to call them from the standpoint where I’m trying to find answers. That’s the space I speak from and a lot of people can relate because they feel the same way. [I’m] not a person that’s putting it in your head — “believe this, believe this, believe this.” I’m going through something, I’m a sinner and I’m trying to figure myself out. It never sounds preachy. It sounds like a person who’s really confused by what the world has put upon him
