what does this sentence means?

"Goin through public housin systems, victim of Munchausen's Syndrome"
I heard it in a song(rap)
and this is the context :

Now I would never diss my own momma just to get recognition

Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissin

But put yourself in my position; just try to envision

witnessin your momma poppin prescription pills in the kitchen

Bitchin that someone's always goin throuh her purse and shit's missin

Goin through public housin systems, victim of Munchausen's Syndrome

My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasn't

'til I grew up, now I blew up, it makes you sick to ya stomach

doesn't it? Wasn't it the reason you made that CD for me Ma?

So you could try to justify the way you treated me Ma?

But guess what? You're gettin older now and it's cold when your lonely

And Nathan's growin up so quick he's gonna know that your phony

And Hailie's gettin so big now; you should see her, she's beautiful

But you'll never see her - she won't even be at your funeral!

See what hurts me the most is you won't admit you was wrong

Bitch do your song - keep tellin yourself that you was a mom!

But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get

You selfish bitch; I hope you fuckin burn in hell for this shit

Remember when Ronnie died and you said you wished it was me?

Well guess what, I +AM+ dead - dead to you as can be!

    Munchausen's syndrome is a condition where the person acts as if they have some bad mental illness to get attention. His mother apparently has it, because the gave her children very little attention, always thinking of herself.
    Housing projects are apartment buildings put up by the government for people that cannot afford any other housing. They are generally awful places, with large drug and crime problems.
    The singer grew up in such an environment - one where children would need extra attention - with a mother who wanted attention only for herself.
