Default 10 Bricks - Track Review

10 Bricks

Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...part II
2009


Raekwon
Ghostface Killah
Cappadonna

J.Dilla



[Intro]

(Raekwon)

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
fault*

(Raekwon)

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

[Chorus]

(Raekwon)

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

(Cappadonna)

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

[Chorus]

(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

[Chorus]

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.
