“I’m from where dreaming ain’t allowed, especially when you dreaming aloud/Enough to dream your self-esteem into clouds/It takes tears, sweat, blood, five CCs/’Cuz I know what a kid in apartment 5C seed/Heaven knows all I had was hella hope, speed dating with destiny, I couldn’t tell her nope/When I first saw stars, television was my telescope/For me, something that could see me free was a bar/Through diamonds in the sky that never came down, now that’s a star/My vision was big enough to get me out of the space, I wanted to pass how far I see/I wondered could a kid from Mars see, a kid from Marcy,” spits Jay Z during the poem.
The “Dream. On.” clip will play at the beginning of Jay-Z’s set at Made in America fest, which takes place September 2nd and 3rd in Philadelphia. The lineup also includes J. Cole, Solange, the Chainsmokers and Migos.
