There's a saying he uses when people ask Frederick Laverpool Sr. where he's from. "I'm Brooklyn born, Brooklyn bred, and when I die, I'll be Brooklyn dead," intones the 56-year-old founder of Braggin' About Brooklyn.
I'm Brooklyn born and Brooklyn bred and when I die I'll be Brooklyn dead. (But not for some time yet I hope.)
BROOKLYN BORN BROOKLYN BRED WHEN WE DIE WE WILL BE BROOKLYN DEAD
What is your ethnic background?
Brooklyn born, Brooklyn bred, and in the end I'll be Brooklyn DEAD
