They in the red, but my stock is green

from XV – When We're Done Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Green seems to be one of his favorite colors. The title of Vizzy’s upcoming debut album is The Kid with the Green Backpack. It also points out how he’s different from everybody and embraces it.

Also, the phrase “in the red” refers to losing money or running a deficit. It comes from old accounting ledgers, where losses were written down in red ink.

A play on words: stock/stalk. His stock is green like he’s making money, and his stalk is green in reference to Jack and the beanstalk in the next line.
