    Hell's Kitchen (also known as Clinton) is a neighborhood in Manhattan, on the west side, north of Chelsea, south of Lincoln Center. Alicia Keyes is the pop singer.

    I presume that "down the line" refers to "farther down the railroad tracks" in the Ma Rainey song, but I may be wrong.
    A. Keyes was born in 1981. I guess Dylan was living in NYC at that time.
