Been feeling homesick for NY these days, especially after putting Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” on an infinite loop. I mean how sick must it be to write an anthem for the city you grew up in. You have to admit it, Jay-Z is the true “King of New York,” and in this case 16 million views can’t be wrong.
Linktribution: Jay-Z’s latest anthem to NY via Shauser.
What? I get no love for pointing you towards this song? haha. Jay-Z is a great poet.
I’ve been meaning to do a comparison between Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” and Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind”, wonder if there is anything worth comparing.
In any case, “these streets will make you feel brand new, these lights will inspire you”.
Yeah, you are right, I should have given you the appropriate link love, but I’m Jim Groom, damn it! Post edited with proper attribution given 🙂
Here’s a rendition of this song by the kids from PS 22 in Staten Island:
Pretty cool. Here’s their site: http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com/
