Dwayne Carter absent keep looking
I'm present on the block
Wayne was on the block when he suppose to be in school. Also when teachers would check the student roll, students would say “present” to announce that they are there.
His father, absent since Wayne was a child, is also named Dwayne Carter (checkout this interview with Wayne about his father). Thus, he is remarking on his father being gone while Wayne is still on the block.
