The Game

The Game - Pain

rate me

[Chorus: Keyshia Cole]

See, ever since the day I got the chance to make a change

I've been in this game, it's a new day

And I'm making it known 'cause I just want the world to know

I'm paying my dues, and I got the utmost, I just wanna let you know

I'm payin' homage 'cause you've paved the way for me, yeah

[Verse 1: The Game]

I swear to God, it feel like every day is my birthday

Let the top down, California's my birthplace

So I'ma take you there like B.I.G took niggaz to New York

"Juicy" had us feeling like we was from New York

And that's real shit blazed the Philly

It's summertime shout out to Will Smith

'cause who didnt wanna be the Fresh Prince

Flat top, gold chain and some fresh kicks?

My nigga Nas told me money make the world go round

And Uncle Luke showed me how to make my girl go down

I've been around Hip Hop since '85

She had her ups and downs but she stayed alive

I used to think LL stood for Love LA

He from Queens, how the fuck he put that with Cool J?

Red Kangol hat, red sweatsuit to match

Red Adidas, nigga, Game is back

[Chorus]

And ever since the day I got the chance to make a change

I've been in this game, it's a new day

And I'm making it known 'cause I just want the world to know

I'm paying my dues, and I got the utmost, I just wanna let you know

I'm payin' homage 'cause you've paved the way for me, yeah

[Verse 2]

Public Enemy and N.W.A is on my boombox, had to say

Yoday was a good day, had the hood buzzin'

Ice Cube my favorite rapper, y'all niggaz can't tell me nothin'

Everybody's first bootleg was Boyz 'n the Hood

Whoever thought gangsta rap would make noise in the hood

When the cars ride by with the boomin' system

Two door Mustang and the roof was missing

Every girl at ya school had the new extensions

Even gangstaz was dancin' like New Edition

'cause the house parties stayed rockin' all night

Niggas came through and shot it up but it was alright

'cause after the cops left, it was a party then

You down with OPP, then bring Naughty in

They say it never rain in southern California, Tony Toni lied

Sit back, watch Game throw his money in the sky

[Chorus]

And ever since the day I got the chance to make a change

I've been in this game, it's a new day

And I'm making it known 'cause I just want the world to know

I'm paying my dues, and I got the utmost, I just wanna let you know

I'm payin' homage 'cause you've paved the way for me, yeah

[Verse 3]

Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M get the money

In the back, I relax with all the hunnies

DJ bring it back, let it go

Mix it in with Black Rob, make 'em say WHOA!

Every thing full circle, Game livin' major

Girls on my hip like a Skytel pager

Now I'm on the top, let the champagne pop

Throw ya hands in the sky 'cause The Game don't stop

Just a little more change, gotta Benz and the Range

Every rap metaphor always ends in my name:

The Kool Hercs, DJ Red Alerts

Before I was born they was talking 'bout The Game

Ask a Jay-Z fan 'bout Big Daddy Kane

Dont know him, Game gonna show 'em

Just like they showed me, my lyrics is O.G

When its all said and done, you niggas gon' quote me

[Chorus]

And ever since the day I got the chance to make a change

I've been in this game, it's a new day

And I'm making it known 'cause I just want the world to know

I'm paying my dues, and I got the utmost, I just wanna let you know

I'm payin' homage 'cause you've paved the way for me, yeah

[Outro: Keyshia Cole]

See, Mary J. I want you to understand you paved the way (for me)

Im givin' homage (to you)
