If you flip something you make a profit out of it.
Let's say you bought a 5-stick pack of gum for 25 cents and you sell every stick for 10 cents (giving you 50 cents) you just flipped the pack of gum.
I heard there was a show where people flip houses.
They buy some houses, fix them up then sell them for more than they paid.
So I guess you could flip anything, but when I hear someone say they flipped something I'm usually thinking about narcotics.
In the example, "pound" is probably a pound of chronic, cocaine, etc..

Originally a racial slur directed at Filipinos created by American Soldiers during WWII meaning "fucking little island people."

Also, a recent ad campaign for a company in the Philippines changed the meaning to "Fine Looking Island People"
