The Game

The Game - Justo Faison Tribute

rate me


Word up, I be the one they call Justo if ya didn't know,

Tryin' to check my man DJ Skee,

With his new mix tape,

Pick it up ya square,

Ya heard what I'm sayin?


It's another sad day in hip-hop,

We lost another one of my brothers,

Justo Faison,

We love you,

And we'll always miss you,

Mix tape king,


We'll always love you Justo x4

[Verse 1]

I picked up my pen four years from the day,

Never thought I'd be rappin, or even signed to Dre,

I never been to New York, I had to find a way,

So I dropped 40 bars on a clue mix tape,

On a Birdman beat, then my name started buzzin,

Aftermaths young gun and now everybody love him,

I hooked up with Gavin, Foxy's lil brother,

He took me to K Slay and Slay put me on the cover,

Drama King I shoulda known, cause all of a sudden,

Emcees callin' my name and I'm beefin' wit Joe Budden,

That beef came and went, I got at him over Colours,

Then caught him at Def Jam, found out it wasn't nothin,

Look back at my career starin' out at the city,

Thinkin' about the biddin' war between Dre and Diddy,

If I was signed to bad boy, would 50 be on the math?

Probably not but maybe Justo wouldn't have crashed.


We'll always love you Justo x4

[Verse 2]

I remember when Funk Flex first heard me flow,

And Sway let me freestyle on the wakeup show,

Spit over a 100 bars then Miss Jones started to host,

That's when they started showing me love on the east coast,

Then more people found out, I was with Dre,

And at Bodega's I'm on 9 outta 10 of the mix tapes,

I'm workin' on my album and the world cant wait,

Cover of the vibe, and I ain't even have a release date,

Then I met Justo he told me if I stay hungry,

I'd go platinum and nobody can take that from me,

He joked about my rap beefs, I thought it was funny,

Gave him a pound then slid him 200 Bars and Runnin'

Went upstairs to change, got dinner at five,

Went to Houstons and that's the first time I met Nas,

Had billboard wit me and two months later he died,

So this is what it sounds like when thugs cry.


We'll always love you Justo x4

[Verse 3]

Markin' off days on the calendar I can't even sleep,

Like a convict, waitin' on January 18th,

When the documentary dropped, it flooded the streets,

My mix tape buzz made me gold the first week,

Double platinum in two months,

Record labels gettin' scared,

Cause the kid from Compton sellin like Sunny and Cher,

Mix tape awards came around, glad I was there,

To get my award, mix tape artist of the year,

Stepped on stage, and Justo let 'em know,

You might as well crown him the new king of the west coast,

A couple of months passed and we aint speak,

My sidekick went off (Justo Rest In Peace)

I let everybody from Snoop to Busta know,

A car crash just claimed the life of Justo,

They say the good die young, if ya know like I know,

Live ya life to the fullest one day we all gotta go.


Give a moment of silence,

If you're wearing a Fiddy cap take it off,

If you driving, pull over to the side of the road,

We lost an underground legend,

Justo Faison,

Mix tape king,

Rest In Peace.
