Playlist: On the bus to New York City

  1. DJ Cappel & Smitty –
    Biggie @ 5 Pointz in Queens

    Biggie @ 5 Pointz in Queens

    “Juicy/New York, New York” (from Blue Eyes Meets Bed-Stuy, the Notorious B.I.G./Frank Sinatra mix)

  2. Jay-Z featuring Lil Wayne – “Hello Brooklyn”
  3. Kevin So – “New York City” (gotta love the cheesy lyrics by this man)
  4. Pete Miser – “From the 718” (interlude)
  5. Mos Def – “Brooklyn”
  6. Vampire Weekend – “A-Punk” (“I saw Joanna down in the subway/She took an apartment in Washington Heights”)
  7. Joni Mitchell – “Chelsea Morning”
  8. Suzanne Vega – “New York Is a Woman”
  9. LCD Soundsystem – “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” (I don’t really listen to LCD Soundsystem, but the title of this song is pretty irresistible.)
  10. Talib Kweli & Jean Grae – “New York Shit” (better than the Busta Rhymes version, I think)
  11. Mobb Deep – “Best of Queens” (I have trouble finding songs to represent my borough.)
  12. Grandmaster Caz – “South Bronx Subway Rap” (from Wild Style, the best movie about NYC ever)
  13. La Bruja – “Nuyorico” (“And if you’re in the mood to view the city lights/Of paradise, you don’t even have to go to Paris/You can go out on the Rosie Perez Terrace/Where tropical sounds can be found”)
