Fabolous had a hit on his hands with 'Brooklyn (We Go Hard).' Unfortunately, it was solely a mixtape cut. Nevertheless, the track serves as one of the borough's most popular anthems.

Throughout the track, Fab shouts out Brooklyn traditions like copping new threads downtown, heading to Manhattan Beach or kicking it at Empire skating rink. Over a looped sample from British rapper M.I.A., the Bed-Stuy native spits, "Empire Skating Rink / I'll be there / Before the grills / Gold Fronts / Albee Square."
