So Watcha Sayin’

Whether you like it or not he’s back—it’s The Game! Late last night, we finally got our first offering from one of hip-hop’s most anticipated albums of all-time. A record that still remains in a cloud of controversy: Has Dr. Dre or will he participate in the making of The Game’s Doctor’s Advocate? Are 50 Cent’s claims in the new XXL that Game has been moved to Geffen Records true? Will this record live up to hype with or without the good doctor and/or 50 Cent?

Time will tell. In the meantime we got “One Blood” to dissect and scrutinize. And that’s what your boy YN spent Tuesday afternoon doing. You rap nerds could never ever, never ever, get on my level. I was a rap geek when you fuckers where in kindergarden—I beg your pardon. Here’s all you need to know about Chuck Taylor’s newest from the rap journalism game’s truest. Follow me now.

Lyrics

[Game whispers] Dre, I see dead people

Yo Dre, thought I was dead
West Coast

Verse 1
I’m the Doctor’s Advocate
Nigga Dre shot ya
Brought me back from the dead
That’s why they call him the doctor
The Math’s gonna drop him
And 50 ain’t rockin’ with him
No more, It’s Okay, I get it poppin’
Whole club rockin’ like a 6-4 Impala
Drink Cris throw it up call the shit Hydraulic
Then piss in the cup call the shit Hypnotic
I bleed Compton, stick crack and shit Chronic
And you new niggas ain’t shit but new niggas
Bathing Ape shoe niggas I’m talking to you nigga
Bouncin the 6-4 throwin up Westside, man
Sell another 5 million albums, yes I am
Fresh like damn this nigga did it again
A hundred thousand on his neck, LA above the brim
Inside the Lambo shotgun with Snoop
What would the muthafuckin’ West Coast be without
One Crip and…

Hook
One Blood (repeat 4x)
Blood (repeat 21x)
One Blood (repeat 5x)

Verse 2
I’m from the Westside of the 64 Impala
Where niggas say Where you From?
We don’t never say Holla
Bandana on the right side
Gun on the left side
Niggas in New York know how to throw up the Westside
Word to Eazy I’m so ill, believe me
I made room for Jeezy but the rest of you niggas better be
Glad you breathin’
All I need is one reason
I’m the King and Dre said it the West Coast need me
I don’t know why you niggas keep trying me
Everybody know that I’m the heir to the Aftermath dynasty
And I ain’t gotta make shit for the club
What DJ gonna turn down a .38 snub?
You 38 and you still rappin? Ugh
I’m 26 nigga so is the dubs
On the ’07 Hummer hop out
No bodyguards when the Chronic smokes clears
All you gonna see is

Hook

Verse 3
I ain’t got beef with 50
No beef with Jay
What’s beef? When you getting head in the six tre
And the double Game chains I keep ‘em on display
Black T shirt so all you see is the A
Turn on the TV and all you see is the A
You niggas better make up a dance to try to get radio play
Keep on snappin’ your fingers I ain’t goin’ away
I don’t regret what I spit ’cause I know what I say
And niggas talk about me they don’t know when to stop
I got the Louis Vuitton belt buckle holding the glock
No beam, no silencer, I know when to pop
Wait til Lil Jon come on and let off a shot
I had the #1 Billboard spot
Niggas stepped on my fingers and I climbed right back to the top
I’m Big, I’m Cube, I’m Nas, I’m Pac
This ain’t shit but a warning til my album drop

    oh great and wise elliott…
    where would we be without your supreme knowledge?
    we would all surely be lost if it wasn’t for you tellin’ us that “Drink Cris” meant to drink cristal champagne…
    where did you ever learn these ancient secrets?
    you must always remain as the XXL editor or all of us little people won’t know what to do…
    but there were still things that you didn’t explain though…
    what is a hundred thousand on a neck?
    what is this “West Coast” he keeps talkin’ about?
    and what is a black t-shirt?

    please write back soon YN…
    we are all awaiting your glorious knowledge

  • Hucclebury

    He still needs to quit name dropping and talkin about ’64 Impalas. He’s supposed to be the future of the west but is still talkin’ ’bout the same ish they were talkin’ ’bout in ’92. The 64 Impala and hydraulics, etc.

    I have to step my game up huh?…

  • H-man

    Tony Yayo iz 29, Dis must B towards Jay-z, hes older dan 38 isnt he??? The Game would B outta his mind to dis Yayo. Yayo goes G-unit, then Game would B in trouble. Yayo goes Gametime, 50 would B in trouble. Lets C who breaks it down best. May da best man win!!!

  • Sheer

    where you find time to do stuff like this the world will never know.

    I lIke it, though.

  • http://snitchesrus.com snitchymcrat

    YN, why don’t you do something real BOSS and interview Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine and ask them on there take on the 50 and Game situation and how this is affecting business..

  • DCMadeMan

    ^yeah good point dawg, since this nigga YN be on interscopes DICK. Ask them what fuck is going on? Take your lub and maple syrup with you too, salad boy lol

  • A^G

    Ha ha keep it geeksta, biyatch

    Nah but seriously most of the lines you explain are hella obvious to anyone who gives a shit.

    Ha ha keep it geeksta, biyatch

    Nah but seriously most of the lines you explain are hella obvious to anyone who gives a shit.

  • lukee lefty

    same shit as before, playin jay with one line then bigging him up in the next

    this nigga is confused he needs direction he should join scientology or something

  • \sjios\deio\shnd

    I dunno why hes got beef with the south, unless he thinks he can take the crown :P

  • \sjios\deio\shnd

    The lyrics arent great tbh, game step up ur game

  • Styles

    Game always does this shit though. On his mixtapes where he dissed G-unit there was a song why you smell like that where he dissed G-unit and then threw a line at Jay right after it. He try playing that shit off by saying he was going at G-unit.

    “Niggaz hiding out hoping that the beef will settle/ Whoever knew G-unit wore pink silettos/ Ask Buck if I squeeze my metal/ YO GOD YOU FROM NEW YORK THEN MEET THE DEVIL//”
    Everybody know Jay call himself the God mc, that’s just one song where he pulled some slick shit on Jay, Jay went easy on him last time, but if he keep it up Jay really going to take him out.

  • http://WWW.XXLMAG.COM 1BROWNBOY

    DUMB NIGGAZ IT’S ONLY A WARNING TILL HIS ALBUM DROP!!

  • DJ Lucky Luke

    The song is lame, Masta Killa’s version is better. This nigga’s talking about the same shit he did on the first album. I guess as long as he doesn’t have a love song, no one can complain about how rappers change to acquire new fans…this is the same ol’ shit. Game is Lame

  • Styles

    Interscope could give two shits about this beef, unless it looks like 50 or Ga,e will get killed, because they’re making the most money off this. 50 disses game on wax, rise in sales + Game hollas back and Game sells more= Interscope makes a shit load of money b/c hip hop fans eat up beef. He got a lot off his chest, but I don’t like one blood, but that’s just me, not taking sides, but I don’t like the record.

  • http://www.allhiphop.com Rey

    Lemme tell ya, My hatred (not hating ON 50, just hating everything he stands for, assholes) for 50 Cent runs deep, as well as my disgust at YN, but I have a special brand of boiling hatred (see earlier parentheses) for all that fad fuckin’ down south Lowest Common Denominator bullshit crack/rap/snap shit.

    I liked the lyrics to this, and I loved how he took shots at those down south assholes and their primitive music.

    I’m a fan of The Game, and I’ll definitely be purchasing The Doctor’s Advocate.

    UNO!

  • http://xxlmag.com KLP

    The Game showed respect to the Atlanta host at the BET Hip Hop Awards by leaving out the shot @ the Atlanta music scene and cutting the line about Lil John. Much props for that smart business move. You don’t want to hurt your album sales by going to a state on national T.V. and dissin part of there musical culture.
