My favorite was Kane, now I'm dope with weight in the game
You was hot but can't stay in the flame

from Common – The Game Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

An extended, but rather tired, metaphor, referencing the music of Big Daddy Kane and comparing Common’s position to that of a drug dealer (“dope” “weight”), with a glancing reference to lighting up crack rocks in the next two lines (“windows crack”) is probably also a part of this.
