You should come to the housewarming
Come and see what your new neighbor 'bout

from Jay Z – Somewhereinamerica Lyrics on Rap Genius


While Jay-Z is saying he’s moving into the neighborhood whether you like it or not, he’s also making it clear that he’s open to you if you are open to him. As well as talking about his own personal experience, this is also a broader metaphor for black culture’s interaction with mainstream America.
