Coming from where I'm from

Sometimes I feel like I don't have a partner
                                                                            Sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in, is beautiful Brooklyn
Long as I live here believe I'm on fire 
 Cuz it's the B-the-R-the-O-the-O-KL-Y-N is the place where I stay
The B-the-R-the-O-the-O-K Best in the world and all USA --- Mos Def.

This weekend I will be in Brooklyn for Brooklyn Bodega, and so what better way to celebrate than to showcase the place that made me!  No matter where I live, whether it's Long Island or Timbuktu I'll always be from the greatest city in the world.... BROOKLYN!

Brooklyn fun fact: Brooklyn was the only borough that had doubts about joining NYC, and had several conditions that had to be met, if Brooklyn was to become a willing part of NYC.

Hopefully I can get good pictures of at this festival.

I'm always impressed with Brooklyn until I'm there and I have sensory overload. I will conquer it, tho. Watch!
