Holding up your saloon, clean sweep, like a broom

from Raekwon (Ft. Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, Method Man & RZA) – Wu-Gambinos Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Here, Ghostface is making a comparison to Western Films: A ‘saloon’ is a bar in which cowboys drink. Ghost is drawing parallels between the drug trade and the ‘Wild West’, in which a building containing the ‘supply’ is being compared to a bar. He is also using the metaphor of a ‘broom’ to illustrate the ease with which he eliminates all competition. A “Clean Sweep” might also relate to a game of cards, an activity common in the ‘saloons’ of the Wild-West.
