This verse comes from the song 'Old town roads' and I've never heard it before, can't find a definition/explanation online either.

Thank you !

Assuming Genus Lyrics' "Verified Artist" icon is correct, the actual author, Lil Nas X, has commentary on this line

ARTIST Lil Nas X 5,977 3 months ago This second verse is where I’m in this better lifestyle. I have me a brand new tractor. I’m on some Lean–not trying to endorse that, by the way. But I’m in a higher place now.

I believe "Lean" is one street name for a recreational drink using prescription strength cough syrup that contains codeine.

The drug Promethazine with Codeine is commonly known "on the street" as "syrup" and/or "lean," the latter due to the abusers’ propensity of having difficulty in standing up straight.
