Lyrics

Where I'm from?
From the home of the jazz and the arts and the culture
Where the black people smile
Where I'm from? Where I'm from?
Where I'm from?
Man I'm from New Orleans

Handgrenades
Super Sundays, round Rocheblave
Playin spades
Where my cousin stay
Baby birthday
Spacewalk in the driveway
Where the children play
Outside cooling all day
The new orleans way
Crawfish and turkey necks
Boiled shrimp, potatoes
Gotta and the corn and the sausage for the flavor
Just got a gallon of house special from the neighbor
Shots of the Don to the face
Doobs of that strong I can take
The DJ rockin with the base
The whole block rockin tryna shake
On the grill got burgers and some steaks
In the house got ice cream and the cake
Uncle Joe getting hot, need a break
Crying cause he been grilling all day
Told that nigga, hit this
Its okay
Gon sip this Bombay
Roll up, blaze
Don't complain

Where I'm from?
From the home of the jazz
And the arts and the culture
Where the black people smile
Where I'm from?
From the home of the mardi gras Indians
Majorettes and the bands hold it down
Where I'm from?
All the best eats
Best drinks
Best parties
Its the big easy
Where I'm from? Where I'm from?
Where I'm from?
Man I'm from New Orleans

My city so gorgeous
And ugly at the same time
Paintings in the quarters
Dead bodies round the fairgrounds
Ain't shit fair now
Man face down
Gun sounds
No witnesses
Two men found
Both under the age of 21
When will we overcome
Son had to bury lil woe
Mom's buried son
So tired of the constant senseless killing
Innocent victims
Niggas out here taking lives
Like lil kids stealing
Niggas nowadays bitches
All in they feelings
Niggas out here catching cases
Judge not appealing
Mawmaw just kneel and pray
That the children get healing
The lawmakers rig the whole system
The police commit the most killing
The government do the most dealing
Its like we walking round freewheeling
When we can get shot in a minute
Just chillin

Where I'm from?
From the home of the jazz
And the arts and the culture
Where the black people smile
Where I'm from?
Secondline drums, tubas
Saxophone
That man crawling on the ground
Where I'm from?
We buck jumpin'
Spreading love
Its all for the homie who just got popped
Where I'm from? Where I'm from?
Where I'm from?
Man I'm from New Orleans

Crawfish, turkey necks
Heinekens and wine coolers
Cold drinks,  hard liquor
Bottles of some water
Jambalaya, hot sausage
Everfresh, big shots, Pineapple
Pralines
Shrimp on bun
Secondlines, saints time
Home of the popeyes
Jazz fest, mardi gras
Crawfish on the porch
Corner store, neutral ground
Streetcars, greyhound
Early morning, Sundays
Mawmaw at the church

Where I'm from?
From the home of the jazz
And the arts and the culture
Where the black people smile
Where I'm from?
From the home of the mardi gras Indians
Majorettes and the bands hold it down
Where I'm from?
All the best eats
Best drinks
Best parties
Its the big easy
Where I'm from? Where I'm from?
Where I'm from?
Man I'm from New Orleans

Crawfish on the lake
Flies give me a break
They on that sixth sense shit
They sniff it from miles away
Tourist come get twisted
Drink way more than they can take
Natives the friendliest
Genuine when we speak
Dudes be hollin' like wazaam
Followed by yaheardmeh
We be asking how ya doin
Followed by a baby
You say that she ya girl
She ya ol lady
You ha ol man then
Take that girl on a date
Niggas gon try to holla if ya pretty or ya fine
If ya both
They might blow ya
A few get out of line
Its best to keep some iron
Keep ya self safe
And yo family and pray
On the highway
Hittin' 90, no brakes
In the broad day
Niggas spraying with a K
Above all keep the kids straight
Despite falls
We still great
Drink and shake
At a block party
