—As the title track of Cam’ron’s third studio album (and Roc-A-Fella Records debut), “Come Home With Me” marked a watershed moment in the Harlem rapper’s career.Following up his poorly received sophomore album, , Cam’ron was looking for a reboot.While “Purple Swag” put Rocky on the map, it was “Peso” that turned him into a star.Once that video dropped in 2011 with the A$AP Mob showing out in the streets of Harlem the crew never looked back.KRS-One’s “Sound of da Police”—much like similar records by Large Professor and N. A—has aged exceedingly well, which is to say that America has made essentially no progress over the course of the past two decades.Or two centuries, a link KRS makes explicit in his “overseer”/“officer” section.Rap listeners around the world who’ve never been to the Big Apple still know places like Nas’ Queensbridge projects, the slums of Wu-Tang’s Shaolin, and KRS-One’s South Bronx. Even Manhattan has its own Harlem World fresh with stars like Kool Moe Dee, Diddy, and Cam’ron.So it should come as no surprise that all five of its boroughs have produced many of rap’s greatest talents. The fact that artists who even attempt to carry NYC’s flag these days are inevitably crushed by its sheer weight is a testament to the city’s contribution to the foundation of hip-hop.
There’s so much to choose from that so much still gets left out.It was clear from the outset that the collaboration just worked, as each rapper dropped a fire verse.It’s hard to say who comes away the best, but with lines like Cam’ron’s “Cause I ain’t never scared ma/Unless you miss your period,” Juelz Santana’s “Kids don’t trick or treat/They get tricked for treating,” and Jim Jones’ “7 keys to the home/11 trees to the dome/13 I ran the streets with the chrome” there’s certainly a wealth of options.NYC was yearning for relevancy in the mainstream during this period and were conflicted with Rockys sound.
Either way the song breathed some life back into the NYC rap scene.
For this list, we gave special preference to songs that repped for the city itself.
