Chino XL Announces 35-Track Release "RICANstruction: The Black Rosary"


(AllHipHop News) Rapper Chino XL has announced the release date for RICANstruction: The Black Rosary, his first album in over six years.

RICANstruction will be a double-CD release that is being released by Viper Records, the label that is owned by Immortal Technique.

Immortal Technique is one of the guests who appear on the 35-track effort, while rappers/artists like Travis Barker, Bun B, Tech N9ne and B Real round out the album.

According to Chino, RICANstruction is his most introspective work-to-date, delving into serious matters like the abuse he suffered as a child, failed relationships, suicide and his daughter’s battle with cancer.

“It’s a complete unbottling of a lot of stuff, things that I probably had suppressed,” Chino XL explained. “The human psyche has the ability and the power to do that in order to keep it functioning. I felt that it was time to let most of it out so I could move on and get past some of those issues. Whilst on tour last year, I realized how many people I connected to when I expressed a lot of those more painful, emotional songs. It seemed like a lot of folks really needed to hear them. I can learn from that to help them relate so they can also get past what they had going on. I realized that’s part of my journey.”

Chino hopes the main focus of RICANstruction will be what he has become famous for – complex lyrics and rhyme patterns.

“I believe that it’s my contribution to the art form, to art in general and to music,” Chino XL continued. “I feel like if you’re not going to try to raise the bar, then what are you doing it for? I try to do it because I feel like that’s part of my blessing and to share my blessing, I have to propel the art form and push the boundaries of language.”

RICANstruction: The Black Rosary is due in stores on September 25.

    This has to be one of Chino’s sickest verses. Much respecet to XL and I will definetly support this project without a doubt!

    What the hell made you think the sun rose and set in your ass?
    Fast I remove you from my itinerary
    I tense you worry and exaggerate
    becoming jealous at the drop of a dime, wanting to kill all womankind
    You are a perfect ten with the perfect tan goddess
    Who could sell Evian to a drowning man, honest
    Trying to stay sane walking that tight rope
    I’m throwing you off the deep end you better pray shit floats
    You gave me chills to your mind when Beverly Hills
    make cleverly deals, and now you think you Brooke Shields
    Hated my foes, now you one of they one a day hoes
    Used to search my ass straight for weed I smoked some days before
    I’m crazy yo forever goin farther than just screwin em
    Making me feel like Joseph and Mary’s hoein in Jerusalem
    Abusin em is how they wanna be treated they nosy too
    Should I just slap em like Scherazade told me to
    You just a tease and you play like I’m not in your league
    Capturing my mind claiming I’m your biggest fantasy
    I’m unattachin, what think you can spies me
    If I couldn’t hear your words and only judge you by your actions
    Your love is sorcery, drowning in emotion poisoning me
    unfortunately your memory is haunting me
    I’m feeling pains, that I can’t even describe
    But if I have to bitch you fuckin buried me alive
    Your love counterattacks, unrealistic terroristic acts
    Like the Oklahoma Federal Building I collapse
    I want her back, but I know that I can’t force her
    Thinkin bout takin my own life like Marlon Brando’s daughter

    I heard “Chino XL” is considered a genius. He suppose to be a member of the “MENSA” organization.
