[The Game]
Turn the beat up, yeah

New York, New York! Wake up L.A.
Wave hi to the Chi, let's get right today
I heard them lil' niggaz takin they life away
I heard a couple lil' niggaz got life today
Is it Farrakhan, Buddha or Christ today?
She on her knees so she know what it's like to pray
She got religious so she doin it twice a day
I strap up, no I ain't throwin dice today
When you got money on yo' head it's a price to pay
And it get cold in the hood, put yo' ice away
They locked Rick Ross up and they ain't give him no bail
But a cracker shoot a whole church up and it's "Oh well"
Oh well? Oh well~?
Hang him with a confederate flag in his cell
Let him sit there and rot, 'til his body turn to bones
Just remember who casted the first stone
New York, New York! Good morning L.A.
Say hi to the Chi, celebrate with the Bay
No hesitation like Steph, shoot it right in your face
Cause I'm a +Golden State Warrior+ strapped with a K
How's it land of the free, when we trapped in a cage?
Some shit just never make sense like Magic and AIDS
Some shit just never make sense like bashin the gays
Obama must be in the city, it's traffic today
Niggaz trappin today, just like back in the day
We like Roc-A-Fella Records, we packagin 'Ye/yay
And that Dirty Sprite 2 shit slappin today
We got these niggaz boxed in like Cassius Clay
And my Ferragammo belt where that ratchet stay
Cause the police killin too many blacks today
I wake up in the morning like, "Who gon' pass away?
Who gon' blast today? who gon' have to pray?"
New York, New York! Good morning L.A.
My nigga Hayes blew him and his wife away

[Outro: The Game]
This song is dedicated to Stephanie Mosley
who was murdered from a single gunshot wound
inflicted by her husband, Earl Hayes
in Los Angeles, California, December 18th, 2014
I knew Hayes since we was both signed to Aftermath back in 2005
And if I can keep it 8 more than 92 with you
He was a good nigga, I never saw that coming
My prayers are with Stephanie's entire family
I am truly, and deeply sorry for your loss
