In New York…

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.

    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”.
