And you can tell I get real ignorant, cause nigga, I'm from New York (New York)
(And this is how we do)

from Ja Rule (Ft. Fat Joe & Jadakiss) – New York Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Hood guys from New York are notorious for being ignorant (note the way he says it as well). A lot of it stems from President Reagan’s term in office where every hood of America were filled with narcotics. This just so happens to be the era Rule, Joe and Kiss grew up in.
