Once every blue moon, Brooklyn will happily remind you that they’re one of the undisputed leaders of hip hop.
Jay-Z, Notorious B.I.G. and Big Daddy Kane are just a few greats who’ve hailed from the New York City borough and now, Casanova is reminding the world why we should always take notice to BK with his track “So Brooklyn.”
The song, which features fellow Brooklynite Fabolous, has inspired other natives of the borough to show off their rap skills with the #SoBrooklyn challenge. So far, the hashtag has inspired over 5,000 posts on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, where rappers are sharing their best bars.
