Cuban link 5 kilo
ONLY BUILT 4…
Cuban links is a popular design when it comes to a gold or silver chain.
As per Raekwon’s classic album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Also, this chain on the picture is the first 5 kilo Cuban link ever made. Rick Ross have a 3.5, and he told us about his and Hov’s resemblance!
This is also a reference to his trip to Cuba and all the controversy it brought about Hova’s linking to President Obama. He dedicated the last track of the album to this. This is the chain he’s been rocking.
Chain could mean the jewelry, but it could also mean the connection.
This also refers to Jay getting 5 kilos of coke from his “Cuban link” (connection). His chain is his drug connection, boys, or chain of command). His “chain” (drug connection) can cause him to catch a RICO case (in the next line).
