Fourteen years after shifting hip-hop music with Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Raekwon took a massive risk and released the sequel to the critically acclaimed project in 2009. Although the album faced several delays, it was released to rave reviews, further solidifying Raekwon as one of the best rappers in hip-hop history. This week, we bring back "10 Bricks" for our weekly #TBT track.
Raekwon, along with his "guest star" Ghostface Killah and Cappadonna, linked up on the track, "10 Bricks." The song was a get-money anthem that featured production from the late J Dilla. The three rappers prove that even 16 years after making their debut on Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), their pens are still as sharp as ever.
"10 Bricks" was one of three tracks that features J Dilla production on the album. "Ason Jones" and "House Of Flying Daggers" also featured Dilla production. The latter was reportedly produced specifically for The Chef a few weeks before his death.
Like, threw Kool-Aid rubies in a lemonade bezzle
When I was twelve in the church, I started packin' that metal
Deuce-deuce, my supplies was Loose Bruce
Ever since I had the drop, my instinct was to shoot-shoot
