Here Are the Lyrics to A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's 'King of My City'

Sarah Kelleren
A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie
 

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie positions himself as the "King of My City" -- the city being his hometown of Highbridge, NY -- in his No. 69-debuting track on the Billboard Hot 100 (chart dated Feb. 15).

The song comes ahead of his third studio album Artist 2.0, which will drop this Friday. Highbridge is also the name of his own label, which also features Don Q on its roster. The 24-year-old rapper continues to celebrate his hometown pride in the music video, which shows off the Bronx being infested with Joker look-alikes.

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

Yeah

I'm from the Bronx, not Benny
I swear I don't even know why I did it
AP cost a hunnid and fifty
I be feeling like I'm drowning with it (drowning with it)
(You be trying to ride the wave)
(You should be afraid that you don't drown in it)
(I be feeling like the king of my city)
(From the Bronx, not Benny yeah, yeah)

500K that's just on the Richie
My n---a you don't wanna play with my city
N---as die everyday in my city
Whole lotta young, wild n---as
(He be trying to ride the wave)
(You should be afraid that you might drown it)
I be feeling like the king of my city
And every n---a with me wearing Amiri

Headshot like pow, n---a
Headshot like pow, n---a
Hit him twice make sure you don't miss him
Them bullets in this pistol look like a missile
Headshot like pow, n---a
Hit 'em up, man down, n---a
Send a n---a on a motherf---ing mission
It's f---ed up, yeah I know they gone miss him
I am not with it, yeah
Try to play with me you might end up missing
VVSs Elliot not missing
Sorry miss, these Elliot VVSs
Long johns on just for the Crips
Long johns on Crip we're tuckin'
If you gotta pay the bills f--- it
West side n---a, from the Bronx, yeah
throw it up like LeBron, yeah
Thirty rounds on hundred and friends
All my guys came with the sh--s
And then we might get to bussin', yeah
If I like your necklace, yeah
Those guys might take off your necklace
F--- a fight I ain't with the Tekken
Those guys might want you to check in

I'm from the Bronx, not Benny
I swear I don't even know why I did it
AP cost a hunnid and fifty
(I be feeling like I'm drowning with it)
You be trying to ride the wave
You should be afraid that you don't drown in it
I be feeling like the king of my city
From the Bronx, not Benny yeah, yeah

500K that's just on the Richie
My n---a you don't wanna play with my city
N---as die everyday in my city
Whole lotta young, wild n---as
You be trying to ride the wave
You should be afraid that you might drown it
I be feeling like the king of my city
And every n---a with me wearing Amiri
