VERSE
 
                       E
Yeah, Yeah, Im'ma up at Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tribeca
 
Right next to DeNiro, But I’ll be hood forever
            Amaj7
I’m the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
 
I can make it anywhere, yeah they love me everywhere
                 E
I used to cop in Harlem, all of my dominicanos
 
Right there up on Broadway, brought me back to that McDonald's
              Amaj7
Took it to my stash spot, Five Sixty Stage street
 
Catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons whipping pastry
              E
Cruising down 8th street, off white Lexus
 
Driving so slow but BK is from Texas
             Amaj7
Me I’m up at Bedsty, home of that boy Biggie
 
Now i live on billboard, and i brought my boys with me
               E
Say what up to Ty Ty, still sipping Malta
 
Sitting court-side Knicks and Nets give me high fives
           Bb
N-gga I be spiked out, I can trip a referee
 
Tell by my attitude that I most definitely from
 
 
CHORUS
 
   Amaj7

VERSE
 
I made you hot n-gga
                E
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game
 
Sh-t I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can
                  Amaj7
You should know I bleed Blue, but I ain't a crip tho
 
But I got a gang of n-ggas walking with my click though
               E
welcome to the melting pot, corners where we selling rocks
 
Afrika Bambaataa sh-t, home of the hip hop
            Amaj7
Yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back
 
For foreigners it ain't fitted they forgot how to act
              E
Eight million stories out there and their naked
 
Cities is a pity half of y’all won’t make it
          Amaj7
Me I gotta plug a special and i got it made
 
If Jesus payin' LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade
 
Three dice Cee-Lo, three card marley
 
Labor day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,
          Bb
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
 
Long live the king yo, I’m from the Empire State that's

VERSE
 
E
Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
 
So they can step out of bounds quick, the side lines is
Amaj7
Blind with casualties,who sipping life casually
 
Then gradually become worse, don’t bite the apple Eve
E
Caught up in the in crowd, now your in-style
 
And in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out
Amaj7
The city of sin is a pity on a whim
 
Good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them
E
Mommy took a bus trip and now she got her bust out
 
Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Amaj7
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin
 
And Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends
E
Came here for school, graduated to the high life
 
Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
G#
MDMA got you feeling like a champion
 
The city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien
