J. Cole - A Star Is Born Lyrics

Featuring: Jay-Z

[Jay-Z]
(Can you say New York City) Everyday a star is born

Clap for em, clap for em,
Clap for em, hey
 (Can you say New York City)
Everyday a star is born 
Clap for em, clap for em
Clap for em, hey


Have seen Mase do it, seen Ye do it, 
X came through, caught lighter fluid,

Still I came through it,
Clap for em, 
but I'm the blueprint
I'm like the map for em 
I dropped another classic

Make Puff pass it

Nobody could touch Puff back when Puff had it
Wayne's scorching, I'll applaud him

If he keep going, pass the torch to him

50 came through, like hurricanes do,
I thought I'd finish his ass at summer jam 2,
I had the Illmatic on bootleg, 
shit was so ahead
Thought we was all dead,
Wayne did A Millie, 50 did a millie,
Ye too, but what Em did was silly,
The white boy blossomed after Dre endorsed him
His flow on Renegade, fucking awesome,
Applaud him,

[Chorus]
(Can you say New York City) Everyday a star is born

Clap for em, clap for em,
Clap for em, hey
 (Can you say New York City)
Everyday a star is born 
Clap for em, clap for em
Clap for em, hey



[Jay-Z]
Snoop Dogg did, Nelly came down
Face Mob, kept it ghetto for the H-town
Luda moved digits after he moved bitches
Drake's up next, see what he'll do with it
Rule had a run, couple movie parts
T.I literally wanted to shoot up the charts
Wadup Jeezy, what it do,
Y'all remind me of us in early 92,
Outcast landed, 3-thou was ill,
like a male version of Lauren Hill,
Mobb Deep shook it but Prodigy took it a lil too far
Can't fuck with Brooklyn,

Wu-Tang gang bang, Meth ate
Rae' took on the date with the Purple Tape.
Passed on to Ason and then Ghostface,

They had a hell of a run
Standing Ova, hey,



[Chorus]
Everyday a star is born

Clap for em, clap for em,
Clap for em, hey
 (Can you say New York City)
Everyday a star is born 
Clap for em, clap for em
Clap for em, hey



[Jay-Z]
And I am one of one,
can't you see just along my run
My brain new lou sun shine

Been a star since I was back in one time
One time give it up for him,

December 4th a star was born,
Clap for him,
he went from moving that corner
To this corner office is so enormous
Hey, Pres Carter, 
watch him get a Monica on all day
Hey, got so many different Monica's but only one Jay

They come they go, 
some real some foe,
Some friends some hoes

But no I goes nowhere this Hov

[Chorus]
(Can you say New York City) Everyday a star is born

Clap for em, clap for em,
Clap for em, hey
 (Can you say New York City)
Everyday a star is born 
Clap for em, clap for em
Clap for em, hey



[J.Cole]
Ay could I be a star?-does fame in this game have to change who you are?
Or Could I be the same one who came from a far away life,

Just to make it in this Broadway lights
Now I'm shining in the broad day light
Go figure,
 a slow transition from a lil broke nigga from the Ville,
Got a deal a real life saver,

Dreams of being behind the wheel like Jada,
I chill now couple of lil ice later
Cole you go the glow like a lil
 lightsaber
So clap for him
Then applaud Hov, he gave him a platform
Flow so sick thought he wrote the rap for him
No sir!
The flow's cold as a shoulder of a gold digging hoes when a broke nigga
 approaches
Told ya I'm focused man, I'll let you mortherfuckas soak it in

[Chorus]
(Can you say New York City) Everyday a star is born

Clap for em, clap for em,
Clap for em, hey
 (Can you say New York City)
Everyday a star is born 
Clap for em, clap for em
Clap for em, hey
