Where I'm From Lyrics - Jay-Z



Review The Song (1)


Uh huh gege gegegeya gegeyeah gegeyeah
how real is this 2x
Uhuhuh Respect this here

Verse One:
I'm from where the hammer's rung, New's cameras never come
You and your man houndin' every verse in your rhyme
where the grams is slung, niggas vanish every summer
Where the blue vans would come, we throw the work in the can and run
Where the plans was to get funds and skate off the set
To achieve this goal quicker, sold all my weight wet
Faced with immeasurable odds still I GAVE straight bets
So i felt some more something, and you nothing check
I from the other side with other guys don't walk to much
And girls in the projects wouldn't fuck us if we talked too much
So they ran up to tonka and sought them dudes to trust
I don't know what the fuck they thought, them niggas is foul just like us
I'm from where the beef is inevitable, Summertime's unforgetable
Boosters in abundance, buy a half-price sweater new
Your WORD was everything, So everything you said you'd do
You did it, Couldn't talk about it if you ain't lived it
I from where niggas pull your CARD, and argue all day about
Who's the best MC's, Biggie, Jay-Z, and Nas
Where the drugs czars evolve, and thugs are at odds,
At each other's throats for the love of foreign cars
Where cats catch cases, hoping the judge R and R's
But most times find themselves locked up behind bars (that all)
I'm from where they ball and breed rhyme stars
i'm from marcy son, just thought i'd remind ya'll.

Chorus:
Cough Up A Lung Where I'm From? Marcy Son (AIn't Nothing Nice)(Been To many places but i'm brooklyn's own)4x

So where You From? (Excerpt from Me and My Bitch Biggie Interview: From Lady Interviewer)

Verse 2
I'm from the place where the chruch is the flakiest
And niggas is praying to god so long that they Atheist
Where you can't put your vest away and say you'll wear it tomorrow
Cause the day after we'll be saying, damn I was just with him yesterday
I'm a block away from hell, not enough shots away from straight shells
An ounce away from a triple beam still using a hand-held weight scale
Your laughing, you know the place well
Where the Liqour Stores and the bass dwell
And Government, fuck Government, niggas polotic theyselves
Where we call the cops the A-Team
cause they hop out of vans and spray things
And life expectancy so low we making out wills at eight-teen
Where how you get rid of guys who step out of line, your rep solidifies
So tell me when I rap you think I give a fuck who criticize?
If the shit is lies, god strike me
And I got a question, are you forgiving guys who live just like me?
We'll never know
One day I pray to you and said if I ever blow, I'LL LET EM KNOW,
THE STAKES and exactly what takes place in the ghetto
Promise fulfilled, still I feel my job ain't done
Cough up a lung, where I'm from, Marcy son, ain't nothing nice

Chorus:
Cough Up A Lung Where I'm From? Marcy Son (AIn't Nothing Nice)(Been To many places but i'm brooklyn's own)4x

So where You From? (Excerpt from Me and My Bitch Biggie Interview: From Lady Interviewer)

Verse 3:
I'm from where they cross over and clap boards
lost jehovah in place of rap lords...Listen
i'm up the block round the corner and down the street
from where the pimps prostitutes and the druglords meet
We make a million off of beats cuz our stories is deep
and fuck tomorrow long as the night before was sweet
niggas get lost for weeks in the street twisted off leak
and no matter the weather niggas know how to draw heat
whether you're four feet or Manute size it always starts out with
3 dice and shoot the five niggas thought they deuce was live
then i hit em with trips then i reached out for they money "Pa
forget about this" this time around its platinum like the shit on my wrist and this glock on my waist yall can't do shit about this
niggas will show you love thats how they fool thugs
before you know it you're lying in a pool of blood

Chorus:
Cough Up A Lung Where I'm From? Marcy Son (AIn't Nothing Nice)(Been To many places but i'm brooklyn's own)4x
