Industry's nightmare, red strings in my Nike Airs
Yeah, the white pair,
Jay Rock is the industry’s nightmare because he is gang affiliated, although he does a wonderful job of sticking to the music. His flow is also immaculate and he is a Bounty Hunter Blood, hence the “red string” reference in his “white pair” <—(which could be entailing the industry executives and higher-ups) of Nike’s.
Since Jay Rock is from L.A the red string could also be interpreted as he is bloods affilated, which is a reason for the industry to be scared.
