Aiyo, rappers steppin' to me, they want a brick son
But I'm the Chef, my price is twenty-six son

from Raekwon (Ft. Cappadonna & Ghostface Killah) – 10 Bricks Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

There are two different meanings here:

  1. Raekwon paraphrases Big Daddy Kane’s line “Rappers steppin' to me, They want to get some / But I’m the Kane, so yo you know the outcome” from “Ain’t No Half Steppin'”

  2. He is referencing his involvement in the manufacturing and selling of crack and cocaine. A brick of cocaine (a kilo) usually costs from 16,000-35,000 USD, but because Raekwon is “the Chef”, his high quality cocaine sells for $26,000.
