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

7. Big Daddy Kane, Scoob Lover,   The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, and Shyhiem – “1993 Madison Square Garden Freestyle” 

After this historic freestyle, nobody dared wondered “Where’s Brooklyn At?” The historic freestyle between Scoob, Shyheim, Big Daddy Kane, Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. is quite possibly the most famous freestyle of all time. This was recorded by Mister Cee and took place in the World’s Most Famous Arena.

    “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.
