On his TBS show The Last O.G., co-produced with Jordan Peele and co-starring Tiffany Haddish, comedy icon Tracy Morgan plays Tray Barker, a hardened New York ex-con who has to adjust to life in a newly gentrified Brooklyn. As a native Brooklyn resident himself — he grew up in Bed-Stuy — Morgan can relate to his character’s struggle. For his FADER Top Five video, then, Morgan chose a topic close to The Last O.G. and his heart: his Top Five rules you need to follow to be considered a New York City-er. Some are classics — Learn the subway, find your pizza spot — while others — lose your virginity in a stairwell — are more specific. Watch Tracy Morgan’s FADER Top Five above, and watch the rest of the series here.
