You love to hear the story, again and again

from Common (Ft. Kanye West) – The Food Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The opening line is an allusion to MC Shan’s “The Bridge”, an ode to the Queensbridge section of New York City.

You love to hear the story again and again
Of how it all got started way back when
The monument is right in your face
Sit and listen for a while to the name of the place
