RG:
The first line underscores the addiction to retail theme, the second elaborates an economic food chain with a white man (CEO of Nike in this case) at the top.

As for the crack, Kanye may believe that the predominantly white government is involved in the cocaine trade, or that American drug kingpins are mostly white.

The second bar was apparently a very controversial line for Kanye to spit, since "white man" is censored in the official music video.
