Wired 25: The 25 Greatest Brooklyn Anthems Ever [LISTEN]

It’s a great day for Brooklyn. As the Barclays Center opens up for the first time today, the borough with the most pride in the city has even more to stick their chest out about. Led by a ton of investors, none more famous than one Jay-Z, Brooklyn, New York will never be the same again with the opening of the Barclays Center.

The new home of the Brooklyn Nets is officially open for business and Hovito is ready to kick it off in style with a string of concerts to open the building. With that said, Hip-Hop Wired gives New York’s most boastful borough even more to brag about with the 25 greatest Brooklyn anthem ever. With Kings County boasting the likes of The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Big Daddy Kane and more, it sure wasn’t easy narrowing it down to 25, but here we are.

Hit the jump to check out this week’s edition of Wired 25, with The 25 Greatest Brooklyn Anthems of all time.

    “Brooklyn’s rep for robbing cats was the best kept secret until this track dropped…”
    Negatory, BK always had a rep for making cats “Run That”….”Manhattan keeps on making/ Brooklyn keeps on taking it…..”

    And the list kinda sucks. First it leaves out the original BK anthem. “Brooklyn’s in the house” by Cut Master DC. Next I can think of at least 3 more songs that capture the spirit of BK way more than most of the songs listed. How about:

    -Broken English by Smooth Da Hustla & Trigger Da Gambler
    -Bucktown by Smiff & Wesson
    -Danger by Blahzay Blahzay

    You’re. Not. From. Brooklyn.
