It might not be the corner, but Chicago native Common kicks a verse or two on the corner of S Evans and E 79th in the video for 'The Corner' off his 2005 album Be.

Although Nelly was raised in the University City suburb of St. Louis, the muscle car-filled street party in the video for his debut single "Country Grammar" was filmed in North St. Louis near the intersection of Labadie Ave and Marcus Ave looking east.

I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
– No Woman No Cry, Bob Marley & the Wailers
Bob Marley moved to the government-owned Trench Town housing projects in the late 1950s and lived there through his teenage years.
Officially, a man named Vincent Ford, who ran a soup kitchen in Trench Town, wrote No Woman No Cry along with several other Bob Marley songs during this time. It is widely assumed though that Bob Marley did in fact write these songs but listed Ford as the songwriter in order to avoid a contract with Cayman Music and also so that the ongoing royalty checks could support Ford's soup kitchen.
Today Trench Town hosts a museum dedicated to those musicians and notable figures (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, etc.) who once lived in the neighborhood known as the Hollywood of Jamaica.

We met in a parking lot
I was buying coffee and cigarettes
– I Went to the Store One Day
Josh Tillman aka Father John Misty met his future wife Emma here at the Laurel Canyon Country Store shortly after he quit the Fleet Foxes and moved to Los Angeles. The store has a rich history as a gathering spot for those in the L.A. music scene, most notably Jim Morrison and other musicians in the 1960s.
