Playing flavored to be reminiscent of Miles on smack playing faded

from Lupe Fiasco – Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lupe’s rapping’s been changed (flavored) like Miles Davis (famous Jazz musician as well as a well-known drug addict) playing whilst high on heroin (smack).

This is also a reference to a battle that happened back in the day between Loaded Lux and Young Miles on a Smack DVD. Miles ended up choking in both the 2nd and 3rd rounds, and in the post-battle interview, tried to play it off by saying that he was too drunk to get his bars off properly.
