He doesn’t put rims on his Lincoln Continental because he’s a purist

No timeouts homeboy, just one time
If they find that stash box just one time
Shit, they'll put the dogs in the truck
Side of the road, holding you up, cold as fuck
Harlem Streets by Cam'ron

Cam is under pressure—like the clock is running down and his team is out of timeouts; there are no second chances. If the cops pull him over, they’ll have police dogs sniffing his truck, while he’s standing on the side of the road freezing

This could also be reference to a police stop during the 2003 Diplomatic Immunity tour, where they were held up on the side of the road and it was cold as fuck http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg3Vm13ztEM

And when I rap it ain't no punchline
I be on the highway dirty, crunch time
Harlem Streets by Cam'ron

“Punchline rap” is an epithet denoting clever wordplay that is devoid of content beyond each discreet joke or pun (think “Rappers Delight”)

Cam'ron insists his raps are meaningful. Furthermore — it’s no joke! — he really does transport drugs on the highway (since Cam is constantly joking around, hard to tell if he’s being sarcastic)

Ya, we'll just clap up your brains, snatch up your chains
See dog? Rap is my aim
But I'm a hustler, in my heart, trapped is the game
Attached to my frame, tapped to my brain, the fact still remains:
It wasn't rap, it was crack that got the racks on the Range
Harlem Streets by Cam'ron

Though Cam is primarily a rapper now, he won’t hesitate to shoot you in the head (“clap up your brains”) and take your jewelry should the opportunity arise. Although he aims to transform himself into a full-time rapper, the drug game is “trapped in his heart” (a sentiment echoed by Jay-Z in “Allure”)

This is underscored by the fact that it was dealing drugs, not rapping, that allowed him to add a chrome grill to his Range Rover

And if the cops come, I just hit amnesia Harlem Streets by Cam'ron

The old Reagan Trick: if the cops question him about his drug business, Cam “does not recall”

Jay-Z has a similar line in “Can I Live”

Wino might find yo' sight
Sell the information for a dime of white, that China-China
Harlem Streets by Cam'ron

A wino might discover some incriminating information about you (where you pitch or stash for example, sight/site) and exchange it (with the police, e.g.) for $10 worth of white heroin (“that China China” = “China white” = a very pure form of heroin)

Like smoke in the thinnest air, I open the Lamborghini
Hoping them crackers see me like look at that bastard Weezy
He's a beast, he's a dog, he's a mothafuckin' problem
A Milli by Lil Wayne

Generally warmer substances, air for example, rise above cooler. When the air is “thin” (less dense than normal) it will rise even faster than normal. His doors, scissors, open up much fastes than normal, similar to how smoke rises on a hot day.

Wayne prays that his haters (here, cops) see the consequences of his success: luxury. While he passes, people whisper about how much of a boss the new money rapper is and how much he threatens the status quo.

In a larger sense, Wayne is celebrating the dynamic that defines his life: an extremely successful black kid from the ghetto flaunting it to the white world (whose penchant for buying iTunes giftcards, ironically, helped make him rich in the first place)
