Is in the pocket like wallets,
“In the pocket” is a term used to describe a rapper’s flow as meshing perfectly with the beat. Ye’s flow is in the pocket like wallets. To be “out of pocket” means to be lost. Ye is in complete control though, so his flow is in the pocket like your wallet is in your pants pocket
Alternatively, Kanye could be saying his flow is “in the pocket like Wallace.”
Being in the pocket like Wallace could refer to Christopher Wallace/Biggie. As Biggie says in Gimme the Loot, “I’m digging in pockets, mothafuckas can’t stop it.” A reference to Biggie would fit in well with the rest of the references to Biggie in this song. Being “in the pocket” is a term describing perfection in one’s flow, thus furthering this explanation.
Another possibility is that the lyric is a reference to Wallace, a character on the first season of the HBO series “The Wire.” He was recruited by police to testify, also known as being “in the pocket.”
This lyric could also reference NBA Center Ben “Big Ben” Wallace, who was in the “pocket”, which is another word for the center position. At the time this song was composed, Ben Wallace was a defensive powerhouse and spent most of his time in the “pocket”, or at center
