They thought the game was over
When B.I.G. died, then the homie Hov took it over

from French Montana (Ft. Jadakiss) – New York Minute Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

B.I.G is arguably the best rapper of all time.(East coast wise, hold your fire West-coasters!!). Everyone thought Hip-hop was dead when B.I.G died, Hov is the greatest rapper alive, and all time next to B.I.G. Anyone contest that?
