"Rock Box" Track of the Day: Raekwon, "Guillotine (Swordz)"

Huey realizes he forgot to bring along a mask with him to protect his face from Stinkmeaner's flying spit.
Song: "Guillotine (Swordz)" by Raekwon feat. Inspectah Deck, Ghostface Killah and GZA
Released: 1995
Why's it part of the "Rock Box" playlist?: This kickass Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... track from the Wu-Tang member with the biggest Mafia genre fetish (he provides the third verse in the track, after Deck's opening verse and Ghostface's second verse) is featured in the 2005 Boondocks episode "Granddad's Fight," which introduced one of my favorite Boondocks running gags, the use of a chair as a weapon (I call it "chair fu").
Which moment in "Granddad's Fight" does it appear?: The Samurai Champloo-esque dream sequence in which Huey (Regina King) fights Granddad's blind nemesis Colonel H. Stinkmeaner (Cedric Yarbrough).
