Most played out city in America.
Used to be a cool, tough, blue collared type place, but now is overrun with hipster faggets thinking they're living a "real", "urban" life style by leaving their shithole town in Maine or Pennsylvania and going to New York with 8 of their fucking suburbinite beer pong buddies. They love pretending to be poor even though their parents are probably paying $1000000000 for their closet sized apartment in SoHo. Once they move there they think they have the rough city life figured out (even tho NYC is not real, or rough city anymore) and flaunt it in other places with true born n raised, hard working city people like Chicago, Philly or Atlanta.
Native New Yorker's try and hide this but everyone knows their city has gone fake and sissified, and that New Yorkers are bunch of pussies now. They fail to realize you're not tough when ur talking shit while wearing the latest in designer fashion, and while spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to live in a so-called new york "ghetto". White people spike their hair and wear skin tight clothes, black people skateboard, and "gangbangers" pay more money to stay in their "hood" than somebody in Philly or Chicago would for a real nice apartment in a good area. Yeah New York, real tough.
Harlem native Cam'ron realizes how soft New York City has become, and is now representing Chicago and other Midwest areas on his new album for street cred.
