Wired 25: The 25 Greatest Brooklyn Anthems Ever [LISTEN]
1. The Notorious B.I.G. – “Juicy”| Ready To Die
This rags to riches anthem is the epitome of what makes Brooklyn a special place. It’s hard to fool a Brooklyn cat. They’ve been around the block more than once. They are also tougher than any type of New Yorker (even if they aren’t, they’ll try and convince you of it). No NYC native in any city in the world has more pride than a Brooklyn resident. The phrase “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere” is for New York, but it rings especially true in BK. “Juicy” is the song that epitomizes that. Spread love. It’s the Brooklyn way.
