This is a track from American rapper and Wu-Tang Clan -member Raekwon's fourth solo album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II.
The song was produced by Eminem's tour DJ, The Alchemist.
On this track Raekwon tells a street crime story in a chopped, fragmentary style that reveals narrative through glimpses of detail. He explained to The Guardian September 10, 2009: "That came from visionin' myself bein' back with some of the most ruthless animals in the streets. I've been around good dudes that had terrible reputations. My friends, they didn't give a f--k: they would sell to pregnant crackheads, one-armed mo'f--kers with no eyes – whatever. And I felt like that beat made me go back to that ruthless side of us. I'm a storyteller – that's my chamber, that's my box. I'm always tryin' to give you the best story from our side of the table that you could really relate to quick. I understand where I wanna be at, but sometimes the production takes me where I need to go."
This samples American rock band Styx's 1977 track, "Castle Walls."
