aj and bigted for the life of me i dont understand why you act like you speak for hip hop when nobody who listens to hip hop thinks like you too

Hey once again lambert, what did I say that'd make u believe that I'm speaking for everyone? :dunno: I have the right to say that Dr. Dre has fallen off and I have the right to not like The Game, that's my opinion, your opinion doesn't speak for everybody either. What point are you trying to make here? :dunno: Just 'cause the rappers you listen to sell millions of albums doesn't make your opinion more relevant than mine.

I got the Game's Album and DVD for only $13 from Target. I scanned the cd in the car. It's cool. The DVD is another story. I watched that 1st and it's very sad. He'd end every sentence wit n**** (most times when it made sense). He had his home 4 Bent in the video when he was alive, then had film the funeral. Yeah, it's sad, but it's ridiculous. About 5 different people "kicked" a rap. The DVD is about 51 mins, not including extras. One thing that was funny was if U don't pick an extra to watch, (and the reason I didn't, was cuz I wanted to listen to him go on and on and talk), he's comes up to the screen pointing a gun at it and says something like, "U wasted too much time, u should've pick something." Then the screen goes black and white flickering while U hear shots. Then it goes back to the main menu and about it it says "U Should've Pick Something". That had me laughing. I'm peeping that album right now. Pretty good.

Plus u supposedly get a free Game screen and ringtones on your phone if U send the code. but I saw the small print. :thumb:

Don't get me wrong, i'll still listen 2 the album in a record store cuz i try 2 be open 2 everything....but after what u said about the DVD, he sounds like every other ignorant loser with a record deal. When i like an artist, only some of it is becuz of their talent. The person they are, where the come from, and what they say is the main reason. I like JJ+FP cuz i like where they come from, what they say in their music. It may not be what some people want, but they remind me of myself and say things that i can relate 2. Some fool worshiping jewlery, toting guns, selling drugs, and sexin' every slutty female they meet ain't nothing 2 brag about. First i'll say they are living lies, and if they aren't, they aren't living right. THeir music is poison 2 the young, impressionable minds that hear their rubbish. Why am i gonna support a loser like this?!?!

i thought i better give this guy a go so i listened to westside story i cant believe people like this crap :nhawong: if y'all like that kinda music you need to go pick up souls of mischief - trilogy.. the album has a kinda similar sound with the beats n that.. but souls of mischief have real skills they could rip any1 on the mic..they have amazing chemistry on the mic..but they actually use their lyrics 4 sumthin..they dont rap about killing people..instead they actually rap abt everything thats wrong with that whole lifestyle..and try to spread some knowledge to people.. check out tracks like "bad business" + "danglin" + "****ed in the industry" and "that aint life" if you wanna download sum.. okay thats the last time i click on a link from one of these guys..im goin back to listenin 2 my souls of mischief albums :werd:

Bad Business

[Phesto Dee]

That's bad business

Spendin' all your time wastin' your time

That's bad bidness that's bad bidness

Yeah what do we have behind curtain

Number three, ghetto fantasy

Young buck sixteen, in a state of emergency

Got you thrown in juvenile hall

Cause you tossed marked currency

Fit out a Lakeshore

But you wanna bounce over the hill to thirteen?

That's bad bidness

Ten dollar genocide is senseless

You wanna be a pharmacist?

All you doin' is harming us

What about Paris Robinson

Medgar Evers and Huey

They kicked you out of Oakland High

Now you cuttin' up your doobie

You'll be the butt of a few jokes

Like Joey Buttafuoco, don't goof up

And let your youth go lil' bro

That's bad business

[sOM]

It's like that huh

Mind your business

Man these niggas be foolish

Trippin'

Mind your business

Slippin'

Mind your business

What's that white ****

You puttin' that in the joint

Mind your business

Aw this nigga's a fiend

Slippin'

Mind your business

Trippin'

Mind your business

[A-Plus]

Yo, yo now

You sold some kid a O-Z

But it was only, 24 g's

You think that just cause you a O.G.

You can short the youngstas

But who's this fist clinched

With a gat pointed at you damn dude that's bad business

You rollin' with your homie Johnny

In a stolen Mobby

You lookin' slow and groggy

Man get your folks some coffee

You prob'ly ain't trippin' cause you off weed

Then he speed crash now your ass got a broken body

That's bad bidness

Messin' with women with mental problems

Two of my homies got killed like that

They up in some coffins

Stabbed in they sleep

That **** is deep

Prob'ly just got done waxin' they freaks

Peep that's bad business

[Tajai]

When your mind is occupied with thoughts

Of misdeeds hopin' you don't get caught

That's bad business

When the truth is obscured

Made impure

The speakers of it aren't sure anymore

That's bad business

When promises are made that you have to break

Spoken in vain for accolades

That's bad business

When you accept a wrong

Instead of correct a wrong

That **** ain't to be slept upon

That's bad business

When ain't no one in the world

You can call a friend

Cuz you done screwed

All of them

That's bad business

When you look into your own eyes

and recognize you've become all that you despise

That's bad business

[sOM]

How much you pay man?

Mind your business

Man these niggas are new

Trippin'

Slippin'

Mind your business

Slippin'

Mind your business

Hey, when'd you get out

Wait, I thought y'all got five years

Mind your business

Man this nigga's a snitch

Trippin'

Mind your business

Somebody's gon' get him

Somebody's gonna get that mother****er

Mind your business

What you sellin' crack, nigga

Man that **** played out

Mind your business

Yeah this nigga right here is trippin'

Mind your business

Straight slippin'

Mind your business

You's a (futile?) puzzle flashin' tweakin'

Burpin' sighin' peekin'

Dude you're bad business

Man mind your business

Bad business

Fool mind your business

Danglin

[intro]

Hey, yo, some niggas try to act like

Act like they crazy but they really fake

Fake **** they janky they shady say

He a lady rockin' a broad y'all

He could probably breed a baby

[A-Plus]

Ay, I done seen him lately

I don't know if you spot him

The type of cat that run his mouth and get you shot up

"Y'all," he ain't got no partners

He bust no slugs

Not even a BB gun if it's beef he run

[Opio]

You got caught now you breathin' from a machine

Cuz you sleepin' on how evil come back

It's like a scene from The Mack

The way you got pimp-slapped

Then ramshackled for your bundle

Late night on a track

And felt the crackle or the thunder

Your life snatched from right up under

Fool you trifle of a slumber

So eternally sleep

You wasn't learnt in the streets

[Phesto Dee]

You just squirm when they turn up the heat

Turnin' your sheets

Youse a geek

All obsessed with your d-boy image

Around real hitters a small joke

Tryin' to be down you get, broke

Stickin' your spokes

Trappin' your coke and still got, choked up

They play strip poker with ya spoke of tough luck

All for what? A fast buck

[Chorus]

Hey, yo, some niggas try to act like

Act like they crazy but they really fake

Fake see they janky they shady

Me I can't relate to this imagery

Arrangin' and changin' (and changin') (and changin')

Rangin' from slangin' kilos

To gangbangin'

But we know your name and your people

You ain't tanglin'

You ain't from the set that you claimin'

You danglin'

[Opio]

Premeditatin' murder rate

Wet up off the sherminate

Shots hit your vertebrae

You wishin' you could turn the page

And start from the beginnin' back at chapter one

You was a virgin eighth grade

No collapsin' lung

Livin' free as the president now it's maximum

Security for you permanent the battle was won

[Tajai]

Is so maddenin' to see you slip in

The same pattern and some escape

Many make the same dumb mistakes

Tryin' the hardest to be

Perceived as hard

Posted on the corners with the cheap cigars

Pants so baggy man you can barely keep 'em on

Speakin' on things you got no business speakin' on

But now keep keep it on

And be the first nigga we creep up on

Before you peep it you gone

[Phesto Dee]

Yeah, some niggas try to act like they crazy

They shady Barnum & Bailey

Clown Fugazis

You was a dweeb in the eighties

Thinkin' bulletproof now

But them real niggas are bangin'

[A-Plus]

Hey, this is what we tryin' to tell

Busters, suckers and tail tuckers

All frail hustlers and nail buffers

Leave it to the people that be it

Till you had seen it, but I seen it

Cats ain't breathin' when they leave you bleedin' on the cement

These phoney niggas make believe it

I hope a nine to your mind

ain't what it take to free, hate to see

****ed in the industry

[Phesto Dee]

Master of emcee slave trade

Pullin' chief executive chains on his muppets

The prime minister of shattered dreams

For these young black kids

Itchin' for this rap status

But he never could add up these b-boy mathematics

His pragmatic toys made him money magnetic

The abrasive weight of his unevasive vendettas

Made him keep two barrettas with his industry contingents

Ninjas, paid protection and fringe benefits

He rolls from the stretch Benz Limited Edition

Caught between a sinister smoke screen and henchmen

Straightened his lapel ignited his cigarette

And shoved the knot of his tie and awaited his death wish

Reckless manslaughter left him breathless

mashed his chest it's a crash in the intersection

A fraction of a second

Spun out on the sidewalk

He couldn't pull his gun out

Cuz instantly

He was ****ed in the industry

[Opio]

Is it real or imagery?

Senseless acts of savagery

Could it be you got ****ed in the industry?

See it

You got ****ed in the industry

[chorus]

[Tajai]

Cause niggas get off in this business

Tryin' to come up

Awestruck, starstruck

But you know how they end up

See it

You got ****ed in the industry

You know how they end up

[Tajai]

Video queen type for whom you's feen

Appeared in many scenes

Fulfilling her childhood dreams

Got involved with this hardcore MC

Said she like to kick it and hang cuz he

Kept her clean

Expensive thangs, European names

Ice embedded amidst, ruby red flames she

Stayed in his mix, figured it was all a game

Swearin' that this nigga was her ticket to fame

But little did she know there was truth to what he's sayin'

'Bout how he made his livin' sellin' crack cocaine

'Bout how he put caps in all his enemies brains

I guess he missed the two that came checkin' for change

Didn't hear his pits squeal necks broke on choke chains

Baskin' in the glow of **** faces they just exchange

Maxin' in his home, coolin' out just relaxin'

Niggas busted and cappin' while she was in between his

Satins and intravenous

Drip her failing heart rate blip

and the bloody mattress

The sole legacy of this budding actress

Coroner lights and cops cameras followed the action

I wasn't surprise but rather saddened when it happened

[Tajai]

Cause niggas get off in this business tryin' to come up

Awestruck, start struck

But you now how they end up

[Opio]

The devious life you get touched

See it

But you know how they end up

[Opio]

Down in San Diego at the Gavin

I seen a hip-hop journalist get stabbed

That **** was savage

Caught him in the stomach with about four inches

Slapped him in his face relentless

And pulled out some big ****

He said look homie, you don't know me

Put the gat to his head calm and slowly

The journalist screamin' and cryin' scared of dyin'

Dude mashed him in his jaw with the barrel

Told him STOP LYIN'

Picked him up off his knees with ease

I thought he might squeeze

'Til I heard the police yellin' FREEZE!

He reached for the heavens

Eleven cops put his head in a (shuminumaki?)

Blood on the concrete

That's when I peeped dude that shanked him was a rapper

Hot cause his name got slandered

Locked in a metal case for over a decade

He thought he was invincible

But now he wish that day never happened

Askin' his God for forgiveness

Purgin' is harder than vengeance tryin' to end this nightmare

The industry clockwork oranged his whole ****

And warped his brain until he flipped out

Is that what is about

You talk too much you got a gun in your mouth

Talkin' big when you little man they called you out

Shoulda kept your **** shut

Cause you know how they end up

I downloaded the cd myself, i like a couple songs on there! But that's because of the beats! Kanye West drops some fire and timbaland! Even dr dre does! I like the beats!

The only west coast mc on the mainstream that I really like is Snoop Dogg 'cause he doesn't do every song about killing people, he has fun too with his music and from most of the feedback here about this The Game album it sounds like that this album's most of that fake gangsta s***, now don't me wrong I like some gangsta hip-hop, but most of what I like from that is the late '80s NWA,Ice-T and early '90s Dr. Dre/2Pac/Snoop Dogg 'cause they made songs with a lot of meaning to it but I don't see that anymore, now every mc says they're a gangsta and from the streets but that doesn't mean that they are. :ditto: I also agree with Hero about how there's mcs like Souls of Mischief and Supastition on the underground that would tear most of these mainstreams rappers apart 'cause they make songs with heart and meaning! :werd:

People have talked about he's got big producers behind the boards. Yeah that's true. A lot of the beats, U'd just love to hear for the fun of it. That's the way I felt when I scanned it in the car. (only reason I didn't let the raps come on was cuz my dad was in the car :kekeke:) I like his lyrical progress for what it was. Nothin' to blow me away. He did mention alot. So that #s list stands true. It's in everyday language, at least in his way of life. Fake or not. But there's a way to answer the questions we're dealin wit.

Just my opinion, but I can't really stand how he doesn't do a very good job on these hot beats. I listened 2 some of his stuff...I find it hard 2 listen 2 tho' cuz I feel like he's not very deserving of these beats (4 lack of a better word). There are emcees that could just rip it so much better. I feel like these beats are wasted. Like most of u said above...they put the good production on the album 2 cover up 4 his lack of skills.

It's kinda like when Tim posted Pep Love's verse on the "On Fire" beat. It waz so much better than Lloyd Banks and I find that's kinda the case with The Game. It's not easy 2 listen 2 seeing as the lyrics are not at the same level as the beats.
