From Vandavere's to Gowanus, I'm so notorious
Vanderveer and Gowanus projects are two different sections in Brooklyn
“so notorious” most likely referring to Notorious B.I.G.
Obviously linking to the next line, “fighting my way back to Brooklyn like we the Warriors” which was a clique from Coney Island in the movie “The Warriors”
Talib the constant Brooklyn ^^ representer.
