Ode à ma ville...

D'abord il y avait Frank
Maintenant il y a JZ

je ne suis pas fan de rap, et la première fois que j'ai vu cette vidéo j'ai même éteint le son pour aprécier les images,

Je les ai vu l'autre jour à la télé, et des frissons, le coeur qui battait fort,  les paroles sont géniales

I wanna go!!!





Jay-Z
Yeah, yeah, Imma up at Brooklyn,
Now I’m down in Tribeca, right next to DeNiro,
But i’ll be hood forever, I’m the new Sinatra,
and since i made it here, i can make it anywhere,
yeah they love me everywhere, i used to cop in Harlem,
all of my dominicanos right there up on broadway,
brought me back to that McDonalds, took it to my stash spot,
Five Sixty Stage street, catch me in the kitchen
like a simmons whipping pastry,
cruising down 8th street, off white lexus,
driving so slow but BK is from Texas
me I’m up at Bedsty, home of that boy Biggie,
now i live on billboard, and i brought my boys with me,
say wat up to Ty Ty, still sipping Malta
sitting courtside Knicks and Nets give me high fives,
N-gga i be spiked out, i can trip a referee,
tell by my attitude that I most definitely from

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Jay-Z
I made you hot n@#gga,
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game,
sh-t i made the yankee hat more famous than a yankee can,
you should know I bleed Blue, but I ain’t a crip tho,
but i got a gang of n@#ggas walking with my click though,
welcome to the melting pot, corners where we selling rocks,
afrika bambaataa sh!t, home of the hip hop,
yellow cap, gypsy cap, dollar cab, holla back,
for foreigners it ain’t fitted they forgot how to act,
8 million stories out there and their naked,
cities is a pity half of y’all won’t make it,
me i gotta plug a special and i got it made,
If Jesus payin LeBron, I’m paying Dwayne Wade,
3 dice cee-lo, 3 card marley,
labor day parade, rest in peace Bob Marley,
Statue of Liberty, long live the World trade
long live the king yo, I’m from the empire state thats

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Jay-Z
Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
who sipping life casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve, caught up in the in crowd,
now your in-style, and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on a whim, good girls gone bad
the cities filled with them,
Mommy took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you life starts when the church ends,
came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
M.D.M.A got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Alicia Keys
One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah yeaaah
come on, come, yeah,

Chorus : Alicia Keys
In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There’s nothing you can’t do,
Now you’re in New York,
these streets will make you feel brand new,
the lights will inspire you,
lets here it for New York, New York, New York

Merci pour le voyage Nath'!
JayZ fait quand même du rap mélodieux et quand en plus Alicia y pose sa jolie voix, ça fait quelque chose de très agréable à l'oreille, non?

Familier ce son... BOF ou générique ?
En tout cas très beau clip-chic pour lieu fantasmagorique

Touché, coulé. Pas fan non plus de rap, totalement  insensible aux parole (et pour cause...j'ai fait basket premiere langue) mais happé par l'ambiance, par le groove et aussi par les photos.
