NEW YORK
New York from the way that I walk
On the asphalt
To the place of my birth
On the passport
No place on this earth
Rather be at more
That doesn’t have palm trees and breeze vast shore
That’s all that could distract me from the bright lights
my
Type of city so hyped they named it twice
I
Like the feeling of chillen in white nikes
On the block while I watch
women on these hot bikes

I Love New York

Icee man shaving the block
All the hustlers on the corner
Stash it in socks
Young love girl telling the boy to stop
Gotta resist their first kiss
Give him a shot
Running around all the boroughs to hustle a knot
So I can meet up with my friends in the village to shop
BBMing all my women friend askin whats hot
smoking out in Union Square waiting for something to pop

I love New York
forever and ever
I aint never going nowhere
No other place can compare
I smell success in the air
The lights the flash and the glare
It’s such a trip
pay your fare
Your problems nobody cares
There’s no way you can prepare
Before you know you are here
New York

The empire state when we move at a fast pace
Keep it moving, attitude when we pass jake
Don’t fake call you out right in your face
Rat race stay on your toes to feel safe
Belly aches make case for a mans haste
our nature tastemakers what the world makes
As creators we inspire innovators
And for the style wild
in so many different flavors

I love New York

You gotta deal with the haters
But outta town make it known that we neighbors
Jam packed elevators
no acres
Ex conns coming home from the cages
New rivals auditioning for agents
Stay patient
make it big on some play shit
Broadway dogs barking in the hallway
New york New York forever and always

I love New York
forever and ever
I aint never going nowhere
No other place can compare
I smell success in the air
The lights the flash and the glare
It’s such a trip
pay your fare
Your problems nobody cares
There’s no way you can prepare
Before you know you are here
New York


Infatuated by the big dream
Get excited you’re invited to the big scheme
Glamour and glitz
the shit
when you’re in the scene
When you aint then you wait read in between
Dotted lines will define all the current lanes
So I suggest
at this time
Use your brain
Easy to quit shit it’ll make you go insane
I am addicted masochist for reoccurring pain

I love New York

Still the same when I land
In this land
From returning plane
Yo im the man
In demand
And I am what I am it’s in my veins
Get excited from the vibrance
The burning flame
Reignited by the lights and
Urgent aim
Im inspired by the livest current game
Whether you find me on a bus cab or a train
Im still focused till the whole way know the name

I love New York
forever and ever
I aint never going nowhere
No other place can compare
I smell success in the air
The lights the flash and the glare
It’s such a trip
pay your fare
Your problems nobody cares
There’s no way you can prepare
Before you know you are here
New York
forever and ever
I aint never going nowhere
No other place can compare
I smell success in the air
The lights the flash and the glare
It’s such a trip
pay your fare
Your problems nobody cares
There’s no way you can prepare
Before you know you are here
New York
