Lotta emcees like to say they're flipping birds
Do you mean a middle finger, or did you pitch and serve?

from Crooked I – Boss Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Crook here puns on the double meaning of the phrase “flipping birds”. First, “flipping” (dealing) “birds” (kilos) of cocaine. Second, flipping someone the “bird”, or the middle finger. The implication is that a lot of emcees who claim in their rhymes to have done the former were likely only doing the latter
