  • (Intro)
    Brooklyn, rise to the occasion
    Papoose, PK

    (Hook)
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?

    (Verse)
    All the thorough bread borough heads, where yall from?
    All the hundred dollar billers villains, where yall from?
    All the low key OG"s, where yall from?
    Got a gat, c___ it back, let me hear yall gun
    Come and take a walk through my horde, I"ll guide yo vision
    When n____s who ain"t ready to die get shot for livin
    Stepped out the building another day, my time was tickin
    But had to make a U turn, d___ forgot the biscuit
    I stashed it on the side of the sink, behind the dishes
    On Sundays I praise gun plays, that"s my religion
    Walking down the block with a boppin rhythm,
    Had to take a leak behind the green garbage can,
    Who needs a pot to p___ in?
    That"s when I b__ped heads with my man, he out of prison
    Wuddup son? Noticed his grill looked kinds different
    He had a long scar on his face, somebody jigged him
    I got away when he got knocked, wish I was with him
    They put the green light out, know how the game go
    n____s die for they colors, gotta respect the rainbow
    Take John through the slums just to get a coliday come
    Hoodlems through they guns in the sewers and swallow they jums
    Snitches stopping the funds, when they hear the drama they run
    So we throw the slugs to their tumors and silence they tongues
    Raw ball heist, hand to hand is far more trife
    Customers be bangin on the spot doors all night
    I told the last customer yo next time not lite
    He knock hard so I c___ed back and took his hard knock life

    (Bridge)
    The mother ghetto went in first up, want the crook bone
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam
    Yall outsiders better come right, don"t look wrong
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam

    (Hook)
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?

    (Verse)
    Home of the time of hoax with money missin and drama talks
    And you can tell a n____ from Brooklyn just how he walks
    Them Brownsville dudes carry gats in they draws
    Come through rockin a Rollie, better have it ensured
    East New Yorkers will stab a millionaire til he bleed riches
    Cop work for uptown n____s, f___ Queens b____es
    Fort green killas run up in yo living room quick
    Them boys at canal, see you lay yo clique on the strip
    Nobody politics in Bed-stuy, who cares for that political s___?
    We`ll rob a dog for his kibles and bits
    Bushwick got beat cops, they actin like they own the streets
    That"s why we drop em like a verse and lay em on the beat
    Celebrate easter by goin to Cony Island wit heat
    Just to have a slash out and bang it out on the beach
    In Crown Heights they be workin them 2"s, redhook hoodlums
    Come around yo way or put yo turf on the news
    Down town in Pican Ave got the flyest n____s
    Youngins takin over the trains, cursin over the loud speakers
    Flatbush they be totin, leave yo top smoking
    Since the trains had tokes them boys kept it locan
    From LG to Albany we was born to be thorough
    Cypress Hill"s the kings but now we the king borough
    I"m from Bang Bridge, we broke the law for the fun
    The cats at Marcy will make you cough up a lung
    Wherever you from, represent the hood you live
    Well keep it that way, don"t come across the Brooklyn Bridge

    (Bridge)
    The mother ghetto went in first up, want the crook bone
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam
    Yall outsiders better come right, don"t look wrong
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam

    (Hook)
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?

    (Verse)
    In the heaven of Bob, my hood, them pearly gates is locked
    We the reason that cops traded 38"s for Glocks
    We the reason them cabs drive by, never trust you
    We the reason you couldn"t rock shines in the tunnel
    n____s be starin and walkin, lookin back
    But I rob a n____ blind and ask him what the f___ he lookin at?
    Patrol cars just wanna get essential book in pack
    Don"t get caught in alleys with Brooklyn cats
    Face the fact that what you worship
    So I pray with my backs towards the serpent
    Hit the underground and changed all the rappers to the circus
    Celebrated Ike after he was murdered
    Due tradition we had him cremated
    Put his ashes in the shone and I wish I could"ve did magic when they burned him
    Cuz the depths of this devilish fire within these matches don"t deserve him
    It"s when life stay on the abs of the earth and where the staff givin summers
    Knowledge beneath the records of a target
    Security stay harassin and lurkin
    When a Brooklyn thug walk in the club, bounce his a__ or skin they search us
    Why pattin by my burners? You actin like you nervous
    Make a mistake and get shot by accident on purpose
    7 were made, when they sever yall f__gots must"ve heard us
    I area code have the same factors of a murder
    Wherever you from, represent the hood you live
    Well keep it that way, don"t come across the Brooklyn Bridge

    (Bridge)
    The mother ghetto went in first up, want the crook bone
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam
    Yall outsiders better come right, don"t look wrong
    My bud will light the tunnel crash, Brooknam

    (Hook)
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
    Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?
