I walk the line finely like Johnny Cash

from Jay Electronica – Dear Moleskine Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This continues the previous line. Although he’s threatened by death he isn’t scared in the least.

To ‘walk the line’ is to partake in risky endeavours, and to not be scared, so he isn’t scared by the people or things that threaten him, so he lives freely. He uses a reference to the Johnny Cash song, I Walk The Line to drive this point home.
