I would always dream but never sleep to the hundreds

from Azealia Banks – 1991 Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

She was born in N.Y., and N.Y. (Manhattan in particular) is referred to as the “City that Never Sleeps”, and it’s full of dreamers (including a young Azaelia)…But, being a Harlem chick, Azaelia rested her head in the hundreds, e.g., 100-199 Sts. in Manhattan.

Dope verse.
