10-year felon, heavy on the wrist, our face used

from Jay Z – Politics As Usual Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The term “slap on the wrist” means a very inconsequential punishment for a crime. Here Jay is saying the opposite, that what he could be indicted for would put him away for 10 years, not a insignificant punishment.
