All 67 References to Brooklyn in Jay-Z's Catalog of Songs

"I planted my seed on infertile land Myrtle Park/Marcy, Flushing and Nostrand and/Still I grew some how I knew the sun will shine through/And touch my soul take hold of my hand/Look man, a tree grows in Brooklyn"

Song: "Some How Some Way"
Album: The Blueprint 2: The Gift And The Curse (2002)

Pretty cool conflation of literature and 'Pac's whole "The Rose that grew from concrete" thing.
