“Welcome to New York City” was the seventh track from Cam’ron’s third album Come Home with Me. The song featured fellow Roc-a-Fella labelmate Jay-Z and Juelz Santana. The song was produced by Just Blaze (along with him providing additional vocals), who also produced other songs in this album such as “Losing Weight, Pt. 2” and the hit single Oh Boy. This song was also the theme song for the November 2005 popular crime video game True Crime: New York City. The song peaked at #55 at the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.
