The Game

The Game - Justo Tribute

rate me


What up? I be the one they call Justo if you didn't know

Trying to check my man DJ Skee with his new mix-tape

Pick it up you square, you heard what I'm said?

[The Game]

It's another sad day in Hip-Hop

We lost another one of our brothers, Justo Faison

We love you, and we'll always miss you

Mix-Tape King, forever


We'll always love you Justo

We'll always love you Justo

We'll always love you Justo

We'll always love you Justo

[Verse 1]

I picked up my pen four years from the date

Never thought I'd be rapping, and be signed to Dre

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

So I dropped 40 bars on the Clue mix-tape

On the Birdman beat, then my name started buzzing

Aftermath's young gun, and now everybody love him

I hooked up with Gavin, Foxy's little brother

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

Drama King, I should of known, 'cause all of the sudden

MC's calling my name and I'm beefing with Joe Budden

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

Then caught him at Def Jam and found out, it was nothing

Looked back at my career, staring out at the City

Thinking 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


[Verse 2]

I remember when Funk Flex first heard me flow

And sway let me freestyle on the wakeup show

Spit over 100 bars then Miss Jones started to host

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

Then more people found out I was with Dre

And at bodegas I'm on 9 outta 10 of the mix-tapes

I'm workin' on my album and the world can't 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 Houston's and that's the first time I met Nas

Had Billboard with me and two months later he died

So this is what it sounds like when thugs cry


[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 getting' scared

Cause the kid from Compton selling 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 kind of the West Coast

A couple of months passed we ain't 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 you know like I know

Live your life to the fullest one day we all gotta go

[The Game]

Give a moment of silence

If you're wearing a Fitted 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
