    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?
    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?
    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?
    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?
    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?
    Africa Port-Au-Prince Knoxville Anvan
    Manhattan South Bend Albany Brooklyn - where you coming from?

    [Fading in]
    Brooklyn, New York to wherever you at
    This is autobiographical taking you back
    I live a charmed life
    We going back in the years
    Imagining if my whole world what
    Where you coming from
    Brooklyn, New York to wherever you at
    This is autobiographical taking you back
    I live a charmed life
    We going back in the years
    Imagine if my whole world

    I been around the sun twenty-five times
    And I still find new ways to recognize shine
    It's like light gets better with age
    The way a song sounds better on stage

    And rhyme books get better with each page
    What before the first bar was written
    A first verse was spittin
    Before label execs was bullshittin

    Way back when Aunty Leann Aunt Mimi and Aunt Jackie was babysitting
    Before food was bitten, consumed through a nipple
    I'm talking about when times were simple
    To make a long story short it goes

    Port-au-Prince Knoxville Anvan love and the city that never sleeps
    From thought to finish I was born just a couple of weeks late
    Stayed home longer just to make sure everything was on straight
    All systems go cut the umbilical cord

    From old earth to new earth Manhattan to turf
    For what its worth my mum held me down one deep
    Pops was absentee but minds you don't sleep
    It took her feelings to raise me lean taught me how to read

    By the time I went to school I was in high speed
    Ready willing and able jackie taught me how to add with
    Dried up black eyed peas on the kitchen table
    And coming home to a mothers love and good care

    Never wanted it was always enough
    But when it came to education its like she had one rule
    There's no such thing as too much school
    Not to mention lean taught me how to play the piano and then

    Every summer I was out in south ben
    Grandpops a bartender at a country club
    Me and my cousins from grand rapid was living it up
    Me and granny watching ??? football golden blue

    She said you can't beat the team and them be 's too
    Some say I got my sense of humour from her
    And I learned patience from making models in the basement
    Brookyn, new york to wherever you at

    This is autobiographical taking you back
    With no time for refrains I barely got enough time to explain
    How hip hop captivated my brain
    My mama raised me on soul and beethoven

    Sports clubs from private school put me up on soft rock
    That was cool but I left Z100 and WGLJ
    To find bliss with real s and kiss
    Video music rocks showed my what time it is

    Wrote my first rhymes as corey but j-live was sparked
    Making pause mix demos with my main man mark
    Playing ball in the park, there was other heads too
    I was the herb of the crew, then I learned what to do

    Got my way from school started battling fools
    G nice my friendly rival at the lunch table
    He started spark at a dark with damian and I date
    I was down for a bit but that was just a DJ

    Starting spinning in the PJs with satcho and them
    Back and forth from the tables to the pad and the pen
    Then I had to do a bit upstate but wait
    I wasn't incarcerated but college educated

    As soon the Albany I was a full time student part time emcee
    At the time raw shack was the place to be
    Living on judge Clark
    Started building with gods

    16 man squad
    By the time knowledge was 120 we was just 5 deep
    I went from Mecca to Albany a student and landed in medina as a teacher
    I had this rhyme reacher

    We recognized what what's happening
    I'm making records and I'm winning
    But that's another story and it's only the beginning

    Brooklyn, New York to wherever you at
    This is autobiographical taking you back
    Not my whole entire life but just a slice of the pie
    A few pieces of the who what when where's and whys
    This song was submitted on November 23rd, 2016.
