“That was for Brooklyn.” For what it’s worth, she’s the biggest and smallest borough of them all. And we’re not talking about size.
The BK will forever be synonymous with creativity to the max, and we’re doubling down on that statement when it comes to music. It holds true for any generation, all genres. From the legendary Lou Reed to the immortal Biggie Smalls, when it comes to massive talents God blessed this corner of his green earth with an abundance. We could get into specifics, like name drop our favorite, or best areas, but that’s what the playlist is for. Consider it your travel guide.
