845 (Feat. Krystyle)
They say it's not where you from, it's where you at
But how you gonna know where to go if you never look back?
Where you come from? Tell me where you come from
"I'm from the 845"
"Suckas fall like the Dutches Mall."
"Suckas fall like the walls of the Dutchess Mall."
Where you come from? Tell me where you're from
"I'm from the 845."
I'm from a…little valley, opposite coast of Cali
Where they slice you in the face for battling in an alley
I thought the underground would last forever
Hit the Galleria for a Nike T when Mikey P had the black Integra
Blunt cruisin' 'till my lungs bruisin'
I could cypher in Poughkeepsie and Monticello would bump to it
Even back then you saw the hunger in my eyes
So when I got the dinner plate, yo I ATE FOR FIVE
But if I go global, I'ma represent my local
Even though it's called Sunoco, I still be goin' to Coastal
I used to hit up SoLoW for a cypher and a cup of liquor
And spit it retarded like the fish are in the Hudson River
But for every friend, there were seven haters
Who talked a lot of shit and told me I would never make it
Who said I couldn’t rap 'cause I wasn't poor enough
All that meant to me was that I wasn't rich enough
I was stuck in the middle, and so I stuck a middle finger up
Attitude like I don't give a fuck
I hate to admit it, there were times I was ashamed
'Cause no one ever even heard of Haldane, or my family name
So I set out on a mission, didn't stop 'till I accomplished it
And now my name is found on an album on six continents
So I promise where you from will never hinder you
To the 845, I'll always cherish and remember you
