Here's a little history lesson for all you hip-hop heads
In Jay-Z’s and Kanye West’s new album Watch the Throne there’s a song named “Gotta Have It”. Near the end they’re talking about where they’re from. Kanye says, “made a left on Nostrand Ave. we in Bed-stuy”. Back in the 1920’s and 30’s when imigrants where coming to America my great great great grandpa came from ireland and opened a dye factory in brooklyn. Back then, they where still naming the streets so they named the street his factory was on Nostrand Ave. Which is the longest street in Brooklyn. So Kanye says my last name in a song.
