When it comes to making a regional song into a global phenomenon, gotta hand it to Jay-Z. "Empire State of Mind" isn't disappearing from the airwaves any time soon (although we're partial to his "Brooklyn's Finest" featuring Notorious B.I.G.). Something about shouting out the names on a map over a thumping beat is the sort of thing that is tailor-made for live hip-hop. The crowd can't help but love it.
Listen to "Welcome to Broward County" at least twice, says Kie Money

Currently streaming at 954 Hip-Hop, the track manages to pack Tamarac, Margate, Sunrise, and load of other South Florida concrete jungles where dreams are made.
