I'm the best since he died, and he lied

from Clipse – We Got It For Cheap (Intro) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Referring to a rapper who was considered the best before his death. Biggie being the most likely scenario for who ‘he died’ may refer to considering that several references have been made across their albums and Re-Up Gang mixtapes. The “he” who lied is Lil' Wayne who released the track “Best Rapper Alive” on his 2005 album Tha Carter II. The Clipse had beef with Wayne during this time and this line is a lyrical jab.
