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

"And girls from the projects wouldn't fuck us, said we talked too much/So they ran up to Tompkins and sought them dudes to trust/I don't know what the fuck they thought, those niggas is foul just like us"

Song: "Where I'm From"
Album: In My Lifetime: Vol. 1

Jay puts on for his city, but he's still annoyed that the girls in his hood thought there were better dudes in the Tompkins projects. It's kinda like dating people from different schools. We all thought there were better people out there.
