    In the streets of New York
    Most cats focused on that word called fame
    But on the flip side, some in the kitchen
    With that bacon soda, water, fire, merged with cain
    Stare at the wrong person to long, you can end up gone
    Whether or not you’re an enemy
    Where most homicide’s happen
    Over a mistaken identity
    Off duty Black cops get shot by white cops by accident
    While the same white cops shoot black people on purpose
    Just to board a train in NYC
    The Military is now at your service
    Now check the way they watch and observe us
    Just walking down the street with a bag
    Will cause the NYPD to pull over, get out and come search us
    Ya know they got that quota to fill
    Most cops fat & sloppy, can't run plus over the hill
    Shooting a black man will get you stripes
    That’s why on the news you see them smiling while standing over their kill
    It’s real ill
    To see all these mothers crying over their child’s loss
    Then when the press interviews these cops on the news
    Whatever they say is backed up by their billion dollar boss
    Streets covered with so much garbage
    You would think you were in England back when King James reigned
    Oh, what am I talking about
    Cause ain’t a **** thing changed
    The youth walk up and down the street
    Boppin’ their heads to their favorite hip hop beat
    Spend their last $5 on a bag of weed
    Then spend the rest of the day begging for some change to eat
    Here in the big apple, you have to check for the Adam’s apple
    Or find out the apple that you’re rinsin’ off is way too sweet
    whoa.........
    Here in NY religious minds are unaware
    That Christ has been home
    He walked right pass them but they didn’t see him
    too busy looking down trying to find their favorite ring tone
    So me & a couple of my peeps hop in the Navigator, head down the FDR Drive
    Cross the Brooklyn Bridge to get some of Junior’s Cheesecake
    Don’t act like you don’t know
    Junior’s known in almost each state
    you can find me in the Bronx, Queens, Staten Island or Manhattan
    But since I'm here in Brooklyn
    Let me holla at Da Street S’oulja and see what’s happenin’…………..
    Info – Mo © 2007

    Da Street So'ja

    Born in (Interfaith) Brooklyn Jewish Hospital
    Broken genetic barrier to further enhance the obstacles
    Buy and sell market, flippin' bricks or computer modules
    Blood stained sidewalks and chalk lines show I’m up against the impossible

    300,000 people in a 3 block radius
    Remnants of Do or Die Bed Stuy I survived the craziness
    Life of every black man is so similar would you consider me a plagiarist
    God kicks me down to help me up but I’m not considering being an atheist

    Been shot at six times and stab twice they are my Brooklyn scares
    But life is dangerous for black people everywhere, I don’t care WHERE YOU ARE
    Philly, Newark , Chicago , LA , hoods so close but yet so far
    And we all know the sounds of gunshots and the siren of police cars

    Life and death in Brooklyn is just like where you are it’s all the same
    Just it’s bigger in NY 10 million stories fall victim to the game
    110 stories high don’t look up when the concrete starts to rain
    Where:
    You are anonymous in life and sudden death brings fame

    Whoa, where to begin? This is a wonderful example of two great styles meshing so well together. What both of you have given us, through your vivid descriptions and intricate wordplay, was a gritty taste of New York. Superb brotha poets, superbly posed.

    IM: Cross the Brooklyn Bridge to get some of Junior’s Cheesecake

    Beloved, My favorite place to get New York Cheese cake was on Pennyslvania and Linden Boulevard, borderline Carnasie/East new York.

    That is some gooooooooooooooooooooooooooddddddddddddddddddddddd Cheese Cake. I forget the name of the Diner. It might have been a Juniours Diners. When I visited Brooklyn 1998, I had to go get me some Cheese Cake.LOL
