Verse 1

One summer afternoon Raekwon and Ghostface Killah of the Wu-tang Clan are sharing a room at the Hilton, apparently getting glittered up. Supposedly Nia Long was staying in the same building but the prompt mention and then lack to follow up tells me that's another story for another time. So Raekwon orders up some room service but when the food arrives he is in the shower. Ghost answers the door to notice that the waiter rolling in the cart seems to be nervous (good eye). As the waiter lifts the lid off the tray, revealing two handguns pointed straight at Ghostface's noggin, instead of Raekwons order of chimichangas. The man folded and tucked inside the cart lets off two rounds at Ghostface but they are evaded, all while Raekwon remains none the wiser apparently due to his loud singing in the shower. As Ghostface dodges the two bullets (probably because only the guns were sticking out of the elaborately crafted cart and he couldnt see anything), Ghostface John Woo rolls to grab his own gun sitting by the window. The sun rays shining through the window reflect off his 'Ice' and temporarily blind the gunmen (yep thats what he says happened).

From here it gets odd to me, "Raekwon runs out the back, towel on, soap on his arms", and all of a sudden the gunemn are no more? I guess Raekwon shot them dead? Anyway moving on..

Raekwon looks over and notices that Ghostface is bleeding, but Ghost explains that he should not be concerned, that the blood that 'fucked his white leather up' is not his. He then promptly complains for a minute about how the jacket cost 10 grand, but rightfully becomes more concerned with concealing the dead bodies. He instructs Raekwon to lock the door, put on his damn sneakers on, and get sheets to wrap up the body, but the bumbling rap artist (thats how this buddy pair thing works) is more concerned with ironing his shirt (still in the towel I guess) and finding his 'Ices' (most likely right where you left them).

From what I understand, at this point Ghostface drops all other priorities and decides to check and *6 his voicemails on the hotel telephone. Raekwon, noticing this, yells for Ghost to put down the phone and wipe his prints off of the receiver. While running hysterically toward him, Raekwon slips on the soapy suds on his feet, and "lands on his back, with his gat" and apparently, to Ghostface, "thats dope".

The pair of highschool dropouts finally decide to get their act together, giving each other just 3 minutes to clean up before they run the risk of somebody seeing something... Three minutes later... (insert humorous thug housecleaning montage), they are both are finished and are now looking for a nude Raekwon's socks (yep dude is still nude). A hotel manager then shows up at the door wondering what all the commotion was. Ghostface explains ever so simply: "partying son, and balloons popped". This ridiculous attempt appears to be entirely fruitless (big suprise) because the next thing the pair do is shove the manager under the hotel bed.

Finally, as the first verse comes to a close, Raekwon is described as 'half-dressed' (took long enough), and "swallowing diamonds" (whatever the fuck that means). The phone rings and it turns out to be Ghostface's wife, sweating him on where the fuck her 'lima beans and kidney' lunch is. Ghostface, fed up with his wife not just wearing the pants in the relationship, but the strap on dick as well, disposes of his sky payjuh in a fit of rage and reaches desperately for his reefer. Just then a house keeper is seen through the peek hole.


Something is then said about "soap suds dripping from his nuts" (still no pants Raekwon?) and "cut up gut, praying how me make it out the telly and touch"

END VERSE
[CHORUS]


"The Hilton"
(feat. Raekwon)

[Raekwon]
This Nigga just bought eleven machine guns
And he brought them in my crib

[Ghostface Killah]
Glittered out, stout face, teck, Rae up in the Hilton
Heard Nia Long is in the building
Penthouse fashion, ordered out room service
It looked bugged cause the waiter looked nervous
Lift off the lid, seen two shiny thirty-eights aimed at the kid
What I do, duck!
Rae up in the shower singing
Son don't know that it's real
Coming looking like he about peel something
In a tight jam, red down, matching like santa
If I could just reach my hammer
He bust two shots, I played mice
Ran to the spot were the sun was at, quickly he was blinded by the ice
That's when Rae ran out of the back
Towel on, soap on his arms, spit duke around, fell on my lap

[Raekwon]
Yo, what the fuck happened?

[Ghostface Killah]
It was a set up to get wet up

[Raekwon]
Starks your bleeding

[Ghostface Killah]
Nah, his blood fucked my white leather up
Ten G's down the drain
Yo hurry up, we got to get him up
Get the sheets son, let's fix him up
Lock the door, turn the TV off, your kicks is near the light switch

[Raekwon]
Just give me two minutes to iron my shirt, find my ices

[Ghostface Killah]
The hit came quick
Hit the jack, star six
Ghost

[Raekwon and Ghostface Killah]
Put down the phone stupid
Wipe off your prints

[Ghostface Killah]
Rae ran hysterically
Slipped on soap
Landed on his back, with his gat, now that's dope
We got three minutes, nobody seen shit
Somebody might have heard shit
Singing on some Martin, were my momma bird shit
Fuck your socks, that's when we heard the door knock
Everything all right? Partying son, balloons popped
Threw this dude under the bed
A half dressed Raekwon, swallowing diamonds
Had money in juice up on his wedding day
The phone rang off, the tea kettle blew, wifey hitting me,
What you want sweaty, lima beans and kidney
Trashed the beeper, slowly I reached for the reefer
Throw a Costa, peep oh son the house keeper
Soap suds dripping from his nuts, cut up gut
Praying how me make it out the telly and touch

[Chorus: Ghostface Killah]
Fuck it, a Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda
We laptop niggas, thugs in a computer
Caught up in the grimy shit
Finding two days later a murder and we got to make this flight shit
It was a Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda
We laptop niggas, thugs in a computer
A Wesley Snipes movement on a Sunday in Bermuda
We laptop niggas, thugs in a computer

[Raekwon]
Ayo, the pressures on, sonny got murk
Its time to move fast
Ayo, Deini it's on, check out the news flash
Flew out the next day, back to the Tony estates
Blew on the first class flight to L.A.
It ain't take long, I pulled a few strings on the horn
So were it came from?
That nigga we stuck and took the caine from
We should have killed him when we had him
Yo I was holding a Magnum
Yeah we bagged him, but we let him slide in the wagon
His bad little brown ho, from out Chicago
She move his cargo, good at handling Roscoes
We had our eyes closed God, we should have seen it coming
He should have seen me coming, running out the shower gunning
Now that I figured it, she put the waiter on
It all came to me, in back of my mind, just like my favorite song
Dawned on me later on
By then the day was gone
How dare this nigga even think that he could take us on
Smoke the Cee Allah
Sent the kite through the Pens
Him and big Dan
Known to split wigs, with razor sharp gems
Giants from Attica riots
Halls is quiet
CO's with babies on their arms look tight
And this nigga from down state got shipped up north
Stocky young fella, running his lips on how he set it off
Then heard that shit, plus got that kite
Money got murdered in his bunk that night

[Chorus]

Oh the song itself goes hard as pork grinds, feels like im translating latin tho.
I'll try and make heads or tails of the rest of this song later. I have to be honest I havent heard alot of the tracks on wallets. Starting to wonder if they are all this good.

The Hilton is a great track, and the story was always hilarious.

And they don't put the manager under the bed, they're talking about the dead body.

Evidently Ghost's quick thinking (partying son, balloon popped) worked wonders on the inquisitive manager.

How about you explain it, we can tell you how your interpretations are completely incorrect, and then everyone can reflect on how you're a dough faced wigger with an ebony fetish.

Get it right, and you can have an Oven Pass.
