      Alicia Keys - Streets Of New York Música y Letra

      [Nas] (Alicia Keys) 
      Nasty, yeah, yeah (New York, New York) 
      Hey yo black it's time again, yeah, yeah 
      (New York, New York) 
      Come here, yeah, yeah 
      (New York, New York) 
      Hey yo black it's time
      
      (*"yeah, yeah, hey yo black it's time" - continues throughout song*)
      
      [Nas] 
      If you knew my streets 
      You would know all everybody talk about is who got beef 
      Who snitchin, who told police 
      Who came home, who still gone, who restin in peace 
      Now they killin over music money, not drugs, rap replaced it 
      Cause thugs with no brains got no patience 
      New jacks I pistol whip 'em with the funky rhythm I be kickin 
      Musician and flatten composition 
      A pain, I'm like Saddam Hussein 
      Still alive lookin at his dead children's burnt remains 
      I burnt the game, learnt you lames a new lesson 
      Your crew's soft man, ya'll need some new weapons 
      The P's breathe Warriorz and skullies and Timmies 
      Around mixed, spics, niggaz and giddies 
      From my ghetto kings in deep thought we don't blink 
      But don't think we wastin our time 
      It's a New York State of Mind
      
      [Chorus #1 - Alicia Keys] 
      New York, New York, New York 
      New York City, whoa oh 
      New York, New York, New York 
      New York City, baby
      
      [Alicia Keys] 
      It's like a jungle, out here 
      So much struggle, out here 
      And my dream's still unphased 
      Greed still the cousin of death 
      Always feels like always somethin farther time 
      In the Streets of New York 
      (New York state of mind, New York State of mind)
      
      [Alicia Keys] 
      All I see is street homes 
      And who it's holdin, our people 
      Only comforts the brain 
      It's like I'm going insane 
      The revolution has to start, don't waste no time 
      In the Streets of New York 
      (New York state of mind, New York state of mind) 
      C'mon
      
      [Chorus #2 - Alicia Keys] 
      New York, New York, New York, New York oh 
      State of mind (New York City) 
      New York, New York, New York, New York oh 
      State of crime (New York City) 
      New York, New York, New York, New York oh 
      Big dreams (New York City) 
      New York, New York, New York, New York oh 
      Big schemes
      
      [Alicia Keys] 
      Oh, break the game 
      Just ain't the same 
      Baby loves and girls with no shame 
      Can't get away (get away), epidemic plague 
      Every hood in every state 
      Don't have no reasons cause relieve is hard to find
      
      [Break - Alicia Keys] 
      In the streets of New York (New York state of mind) - 4X 
      (*"New York state of mind" is also repeated in background*)
      
      [Rakim] 
      I'm from the home of a million legends and trend settin 
      A lot of footsteps to follow, I've been steppin 
      Mind stressin tryin to find a record crime shreddin 
      Time precious, I ain't have rest since nine eleven 
      I live fast, hustle like today is my last 
      I get cash, the struggle's like a day on the Ave. 
      Crack bein raw, gats squeezin off 
      Manhattan squeezin off, from cats who tease with war 
      The eve of the Apocalypse, evil keep movin politics 
      Every block is at risk, the metropolitan metropolis 
      The opposite of Liza Minelli and Frank Sinatra 
      Alicia Keys, Nas and Ra the gangsta's opera 
      So New York City walk with me, talk gritty 
      It's up to us New York it's our city 
      Here the man come with the anthem, hands up 
      It's time the thrill is back New York, let's stand up
      
      [Chorus]
      
      [Rakim - talking behind Chorus] 
      Oh yeah, crucial Keys 
      Your God Rakim Allah 
      New York City, Nasty Nas 
      A. Keys, yeah, c'mon
