Light stubble, rock the muzzle like Hannibal Bag of Money by Action Bronson (Ft. Meyhem Lauren)

At the time of the recording of this record, Action Bronson might’ve had lesser facial hair than he has now. As the cover of his 2010 album, Dr. Lecter shows, he’s rocking a muzzle.

Similar to the character of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, from the 1991 thriller, The Silence of the Lambs, about a young, rookie FBI agent who’s pursuing a serial killer with the aid of another the incarcerated Lecter (who is another serial killer/cannibal).

And if I’m ever in a pickle, I can hand a fucking Tek to Steele Bag of Money by Action Bronson (Ft. Meyhem Lauren)

If Action Bronson is ever in a jam, he can depend on his fellow Outdoorsman, Jay Steele, to bail him out with the gunplay. It could also mean that if a gun is hot, he could pass it to Jay Steele to get rid of it.

The line is also a reference to Tek and Steele, members of 1990’s Brooklyn rap group, Smif-N-Wessun.

Like Bald Head Slick, I hold my mic like a scepter
Rest in peace, Guru, son I rep Q-U
Bag of Money by Action Bronson (Ft. Meyhem Lauren)

Guru was a rapper and member of legendary duo, Gang Starr. He was also known as Bald Head Slick. He died in 2010 from complications of cancer and cardiac arrest.

In the Gang Starr song, Royalty, Guru famously states that he’s “waving his mic like a scepter.” Meyhem Lauren was paying homage to him via that line.

Eat chicharrón sin huesos Don Francisco by Bodega Bamz

Chicharrón is deep fried pork or chicken that is eaten in several Latin American countries, including Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Chicharrónes typically don’t contain any bones (“sin huesos” means without bones). Puerto Ricans and Dominicans prefer chicharrón de pollo (chicken). Bodega Bamz is Puerto Rican and Dominican so he’s just letting you know how his people get down.

Mi Oshun, caridad del cobre
Yemayá, mi guía espiritual
Virgencita, yo que soy tan pobre
Sólo clamo por la tranquilidad
Don Francisco by Bodega Bamz

This sample is taken from a song called, “Canto A Yemayá,” performed by the late Cuban singer, Celia Cruz, released in the 1950’s.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYL6tNDMeac

It’s in Spanish and it’s a prayer to the Santería saints, Oshun, Yemaya and the Virgin Mary.

The lines translate to:

And Oshun, charity for the poor
Yemaya, my spiritual guide
Madonna, I who am so poor
Only cry for peace

Santería blends the African religion of Yoruba and Roman Catholicism and is practiced mostly by people in the Latin American countries of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic as well as several countries in South America.

Celia Cruz was Cuban and Bodega Bamz is Dominican and Puerto Rican, so it only makes sense that they would rep their heritage.

March 5th, 2014

I'm like a cross between Stoudemire and Carmelo Chuck Person by Action Bronson (Ft. AG Da Coroner, Meyhem Lauren & Shaz Illyork)

Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony both play for the New York Knicks NBA basketball team. Even though they’ve been criticized for not playing well together, nobody can deny how great they are individually. A cross between Amare and Carmelo would be dangerous.
