Lyrics

And I’m Fayetnam’s finest

About

J. Cole and other locals refer to their hometown of Fayetteville, NC as “Fayetnam” because like ‘Nam, it’s a warzone where you’re likely to get killed — among the Top 25 Most Dangerous Cities in America

OR — maybe it’s because there’s one Vietnamese restaurant in Fayetteville, called “Vietnamese Restaurant”, that gets a 3.5 Star Yelp rating! Not bad! (according to Irwin L. from Newport News, VA, “it is actually managed by Koreans but they are nice”)

(Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base are there too; Bragg is home to the US Army SpecOps Command and the 82nd Airborne.. that might have something to do with the nickname..)
