    10 Bricks

    Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...part II

    Ghostface Killah




    Yo, yo, Iron Chef *gracias*
    I need some of that, *slide through the back*
    I need ya'll to come back to the, *I heard juice*
    Back of the store over here *just be easy and tell ya man to be cool*
    We got some culinary cats right here, we need you *we'll kill him if he


    Ayo, rappers stepping to me, they want a brick, son
    But I'm the Chef, my price is 26, son
    Move up, about 32 of those and open locker dough
    Soldier got locked up, blow killed the doctor
    Flamboyant police is X fives, watching my lofts
    So many leeches I just left it and walked
    My flow wicked, Miami money, moving and ridicly
    Geico on the arm froze, rose gold with me
    Take baths with white women, lingerie see-through
    Taking trips to Iran, my Spanish nigga people
    Selling drugs to Flatbush, call my nigga Cecil
    Snub with the black gloves, on half-moon Greek do
    Killed him in the Bahamas, his wife ran, white van pulled up
    They caught him out in Brooklyn with a white man
    Slutted out, rosed out, sister was gone, she geeking
    She threw the rifle in her mouth and said 'good evening'
    Yup, Paul Wall grill line, be getting money, crime thief
    I know her from Africa, pretty smile, nine teeth
    Gold joints, frames only, Louis Vuitton, Pony
    Leather with the matching sweater on, you owe me



    Knock the ash off the blunt, confront niggaz who cunt
    Swing an ax, tax niggaz rhyme different from cats
    Specialize in mic rippers, splashes
    We the last skippers, big rocks and the block will stick


    Beefsteak Charlie niggaz eat and they get fat
    Chase heads up and down the block and kill rats
    Skilled with the gats, even feds don't know where the shells at
    The shell trapped up in nice crib with four packs
    Four macs, caught a nice cell for four stacks
    Yeah, me and my nigga Arafat
    Gotta escape but we'll be right back, real soon
    Chef cook it up, we got a date with real goons
    Telling you Ghost, my connect crazy with the wreck
    Pythons used to talk to her sister named Yvette
    I speed it up, me and the Linx, was getting weeded up
    I beat it up, yeah I hit that, but I ain't seed it up
    Meanwhile, back on the block, we seen two trucks
    Then the windows rolled down, we see these two fucks
    Soon as they jumped out, see these tools bust


    (Ghostface Killah)

    Yo, I lit a booger up, rocks is gone, so we bagging up all shape
    Binoculars, scanners, we all listen to jake
    Ran out of baggies, my mouth is dry
    Got them dirty joints all scattered, don't act surprised
    Nah, nigga the currency rushes like popping a wheelie
    Holding a pipe with one hand, the other down in the Bentleys
    You know how it be with the peppermint Clarks
    Throwing darts at a hoodrat
    Getting slow necked all up in The Bronx
    That's all me, thirty four shines, forty four lines
    I just chill like Aaron Hall, writing raw rhymes
    Like, threw Kool-Aid rubies in a lemonade bezel
    When I was 12 in the church, I started packing that metal
    A deuce deuce, my supplier was Loose Bruce
    Ever since I had the drop, my instinct was to shoot-shoot
    This ain't For the Love of Ray J, it's for the love of the AK
    Cuz you can get scratched like AJ
    Cuban Link Dynasty has emerged, this rap shit stop
    I have a team of niggaz moving my furs

    5 star classic. There might be better songs on CL2 but NOTHING sounds better at high volume than this track. The way the bass works with the drums reminds me of the beat on Biggie's "Kick In The Door". The way those opening kick drums are doubled with the bass just makes the beat fat enough to drive a truck through. Classic shit, all you can do is bob your head.

    Rae's verse here is really obtuse and jumps around a lot, but I still like it. Theres a lot of good lines here, even if it took me 4 dozen listens to get all of it. I think his performance here is one of the best of his new sleepy style. Its like he finally found the line between "laid back don" and "asleep in the booth". He sounds casual, confident and focused here.

    When CL2 dropped someone made a thread dogging Rae for his line "take baths with white women" which made me laugh out loud. "I know her from Africa, pretty smile, 9 teeth" is a great visual.

    Cappa is usually garbage, but he's decent here. The middle of his verse is weak, but he starts strong and ends strong. Him and Rae must have been smoking the same shit that day because he sounds like he's still on the nod during his verse. I do like:

    "meanwhile back on the block we see two trucks
    see the windows roll down see these two fucks
    as soon as they jump out see these two's bust"

    Ghost is the MVP here, easily. Him and Deck are the two in the clan who REALLY know how to start off a verse. The way he lands on the beat during his opening bar takes the song up from a 4 to a 5 for me:

    "I lit a BOOGER up, rocks was gone"

    He does it again halfway through his verse:

    "Nah nigga the currency rush is like poppin a wheely
    holdin the bike with one hand
    the other countin the billies
    YOU KNOW HOW I BE with them peppermint clarks"

    "if this rap shit stop
    I'll have a TEAM of niggas movin my furs"

    is classic material. If all those guys didn't know each other I'de be embarrassed for Rae and Cappa, but Ghost has been upstaging them on posse tracks for 20 years, so its all good to me.

    5 stars.
