Saigon f/ Game and BG – Pain In My Life Remix

Saigon

As Promised…Only Listen Here And Saigon’s Myspace Page

 

[Game]

From the graffiti and the pissy project hallways
To niggas hustling on the block setting up shop
Crack cocaine bottle of red tops
Youngins with the boom box letting they head bop
My vision was blurred like the TV that the niggas in the Feds watch
The hood is like a pitfall with corner Liq stores
You sell a brick soft you shoot a nigga
Get embraced by the big dogs
Its fucked up skinny niggas get picked on
Til they buff up don’t lift weights lift .38′s
Load the clip pull the truck up
I been through it sitting on the block in that tan Buick
KRS in the speakers equivalent to Nas’ “Ether”
That was ’85 I was six couldn’t wait to get home
Sit in my father’s lap and watch a Martin Scorsese flick
I’m from the old school these new school niggas bore me
Aint got shit for me should’ve been infuenced by Calvin Broadus, Nasir
Jones and Shawn Corey
I’m on the road to glory about time I done had…
I should’ve killed myself
Smoke that crack cocaine and swallowed all them pills myself
I’m a legend D.O.C. said it Hip-Hop is forever embedded
Inside my veins and I’m taking my credit

[Saigon]

Game, I’m finding it harder for me to live with it
Thinking about getting on some religious shit
They say religion is for degenerates
But if the church take away the hurt
Then damn it I need to get in it
…Cause it got to be the devil
Its got us living probably below the poverty level
We can blame the white man but then why do we settle?
Collectively we can expect to see the lives in the ghetto
To be not forever facing just death as a revelation
We can get on pace if we better the education
Then make some real songs about more than just ballin’ and big ice
Something to get ‘em to think twice
I feel for those who felt they didn’t need they rubbers
Now they teenage mothers
Care about the AIDS in Africa cause we they brothers
Regardless to how they portrayed I can see they love us
It brings…
To know that there’s a whole f’in nation
Dying cause they can’t afford medication
While we got the money to go to war
Not for something that was sure
But for shit that was strictly speculation

[BG]
Dog I’m stressed out
Sometime I be thinking “God I’m ready to check out”
I aint lying I be ready to come see ya
It can’t be worse then if I get caught with another heater
And I ride with those even tho’ I been to jail 4 times with those
In these streets I done seen too much
Too many I love done got they fuckin’ head bussed
You don’t know pain
You don’t know about losing your life in a hurricane
Naw dog you don’t know how it feel
To spend a weekend with a nigga ya dead or get killed
I done been through it all
Just think this whole Katrina did my city like a dog
I done been down but I’ma tell you what
I real nigga always find a way to get it done

 

  • E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA

    Saigon is dope and probably one of the best rappers out. Sickamore tell Saigon to release his album already. It seems like Saigiddy is more intrested in weight lifting then releasing his album.

  • EReal

    Man I wanna hear just one Game verse where dosent name drop. I mean, damn dude. I been listenin to more of Game’s shit to not be a hater ya know? But, everytime I hear a verse by him, its the same ass shit.

    B.G. seemed out of place on this track. I like B.G.’s verses most of the time, but this one seemed dumbed down, because Saigon’s verse was so hot.

    Saigon murked both these cats on this track, forreal. He came on some whole other deep emotional well thought out shit, where these cats came with the same ol’ same ol’ IMO.

    Y I agree with the real noreaga Saigon is one of the illest out but The game tore this track up and I hope saigon has all that grimey shit on his album and its not all commercial because that will fuck him up and Im not sayin like 2 or 3 hard songs i want like 8 grimey songs and the rest commercial ok sickamore!

  • http://myspace.com/tukrazy Tukrazy

    This is a hot remix. BG sounds a lil akward on it, but that nigga has been through everything. Still looking out for Sai’s album…

  • OKiSpitHOTFire

    Game’s verse was better than I expected it to be. I thought he’d have his standard remix verse (the verse you’ll hear on any remix with Game on it.) But, he actually used some imagery in his verse, so I’m impressed.

    Saigon killed this track. His verse is way better than his verses on the original.

    B.G. is easily the worst on the track. It just sounds like he does fit. He’s hardly even flowing with the track. I like B.G. but Sai should’ve got someone else for this track.

  • http://www.myspace.com/16kingz da’realestwritin’

    1.cut b.g.’s part

    2.game is ass

    3.saggiditty did his thang!

    4.i miss pac, would’ve brought the emotion of the song out.

    jus my 2 cens, f it!!

  • Da Shit

    Game and Saigon killed this shit not really feeling Bg’s part though

  • Cashus Clay

    BGs out of place in this song still feeling the track though Games verse was a B and Saigon verse was an A

  • Sam

    Game and Saigon’s verses were good, B.G’s was too short, and why give a fuck about Game’s name dropping, it stands out, compared to all those other rappers, and he’s got a point.

  • John Brown

    I like the song. Shit is blazing. Bout to go DL. Now Games part was iight because if you listen to the lyrics that what they do in LA. Saigon part was very very deep, best verse of the song. BG verse that the one that touch me though, cause to really understand what Katrina did you have to live in the South and how he put it is damn near perfect. I dont know bout the rest of yall but I felt B.G. pain when he laid down that verse.

    HALLELUJAH…HOLLA BACK

  • pistons36

    Dope!!!!! I enjoyed this way more than the original. Saigon is great, but when he was rappin about bumps on peoples genitals or whatever on the original song it made me pretty much never want to hear it again!

    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    I didnt, at first. But when its an every verse thing and 9 times outta 10 verses, all you hear is name drop / simile / name drop / simile / lo lo’s / name drop / gangs / simile / simile / and so on , that shit gets old. IMO.
    This is one of his better verses tho, he only name dropped twice.

    Where this is expecially bad is in “Wouldn’t Get Far”, that shit is ALL similes and Name Drops the whole song.
    Just my .02

  • EReal

    Check this line,

    “Wanna be like Mellissa Ford, but they don’t know Mellissa Ford drives a Honda Accord”

    Thats, Smilie / Name Drop / Name Drop all in just one bar, deezam.

    “KRS(Name Drop) in the speakers equivalent to Nas’ “Ether”(Name Drop)
    That was ‘85 I was six couldn’t wait to get home
    Sit in my father’s lap and watch a Martin Scorsese flick(Name Drop)
    I’m from the old school these new school niggas bore me
    Aint got shit for me should’ve been infuenced by Calvin Broadus(Name Drop), Nasir
    Jones (Name Drop)and Shawn Corey (Name Drop)”

    He’s gettin better tho, but that verse seemed more NY than LA to me, “Pissy Project Hallways”, “Red Tops” “KRS , Nas’s Ether”.. maybe Im reading into it too much or something.

    sai needs another single..

  • Keith White

    s**t’s hot. need the hook to also feature Wynter Gordon though.

    Damn that was a long rehab. Good to see you back doing what you do best….copying down lyrics.

  • derfla the hus’la

    wayne got nothing on sai, game did he’s thang came hard on this shit, BG well……

  • Game Over

    It probably sounded East Coast because Saigon probably wrote it for him. LOL. Y’all know Game don’t even know how to spell Scorcese. haha.

    Sai killed this joint…

  • Atl’s own

    dis song is boring!

  • jacquez
  • http://yahoo.com jordany

    Saigon is the fucking truth, he’s the future of rap, not just new york, i’m talking about rap music period, at least he should be. As far as the song goes it hurts me to say this but, i’m dissapointed, Sai killed it as usual but, The Game is garbage, he keeps talking about the same shit on every other song, name droppin’ and tryin’ to say the most outrageous shit to get the listener’s attention, as for B.G., he sounds totally lost on this beat, you can tell he’s tryin’ too hard to fit-in. I would have love to hear Lupe, Common, Kanye or even T.I. on this joint, i think either one of these artist would have been better fits on this remix. With all that said i can’t wait for The Greatest Story Never Told, i’m confident that it will be a classic, i just hope this joint don’t make the album.

    Abandoned Nation all day, one.

  • SONNY CHEEBA

    Get BG OUTTA HERE!!!

    They should’ve had Scarface on the 3rd verse and it woulda been a doobie…

    Good job Lip Gloss Jones!

  • TheGeneral

    Damn my nigga saigon does it again, Game did his thing and B.G. was ok I can’t wait for the album “The Greatest Story Never Told”!

  • Sai Tha Realest!

    MAN FUCK PPL THAT HATE ON THIS SONG! SHIT IS DOPE!!

  • Sai Tha Realest!

    MAN FUCK PPL THAT HATE ON THIS SONG! SHIT IS DOPE!!

  • Incilin

    When is this fuckin album coming out?? He been talking about it for like forever and I’ve heard Siagon say that it was already done and “he just didn’t want to give it to the label” I really wish Joe Budden would get on this track. He would fit in perfectly, alto maybe not with game on the other verse.

  • realspitta

    this is what we need more of in hip hop. Positive songs. Real talk though b.g. cannot rap.

  • realspitta

    what was gje thinkin with game and b.g. Shoulda had lil wayne or t.i.

  • tha baddest rasta in the U.S.OF A

    yo this is hott,i gotta get this song

  • soopadoopa

    Bangin!!! When the album dropping?

  • ill will

    nice to see game on it, game is still g while trying to drop some shyne for real artists that need to be heard’ ya mean’!

  • thatwhitedude

    this track is the best thing i’ve heard in the 07 and prob a lot of 06…saigon could ezily be the person to rise hip-hop and nyc rap outta the ashes if he comes correct on his real album…all of em wreck imo on this track, although i feel BG went the hardest, maybe its cuz i’m from the south and i’m biased or the fact he is probably the realest one of the 3 with the most street cred and has been thru the most shit…whats with them all not rhymin sometimes on the verses though? sai and BG both dont rhyme with anything on their last couple of lines and game isnt rhymin on half his verse, seems lazy to me…great track though, FINALLY someone is spittin some REAL SHIT and not jus rappin about dancin/ballin/killin or some other BS..when does this album drop????? more importantly when does it leak jk…

  • thatwhitedude

    EDIT: nevermind whatever i was saying about them not rhyming, i’m an idiot, i think its a combination of bein too high and readin the lyrics instead of listenin to em…

  • general

    hot remix!

    game dropped a hot verse,
    i actually appreciate the name dropping unlike you guys, y’all probably dont understand the meaning, of being a hip-hop reporter, thats partly why nas said ‘hip-hop is dead’, because none of these niggas is giving appreciation to the niggas that did it before them and just got their heads up their own ass,

    saigons verse was hot, whereas b.g. seemed out of place, kept it rockin though

  • Chanel

    Eh, Pffffftttt…

  • Blue Dawg

    I’m watch’n for the DJ Unk remix…That’s what it’ll take for the Souf to fuk w/ Siagon.

This nigga had a butterfly tatoo, on dame dating shows getting dissed by a bitch, rides 50 dick until 50 gave him the boot. Nigga get the fuck outta here. Perfect street track would be B.G., Beans, LOX, Trick, bizzy bone, DAZ, and kurupt. The real niggas from all coast not these fake ass watered down niggas. Fuck all you pussy niggas on this site. You bitches is annoying to read. I come here for the music. but i had to leave a comment cuz niggas need to be shut fuck up.

  • http://www.myspace.com/sinistahmoneybagz Sinistah…. 973′s Own!

    Yo Sick da song is hot fam. all 3 played their parts to the fullest. Ya’ll actin suprised Saigon got deep on this like the original version wasn’t deep or ya’ll didnt wanna comprehend it until he had more mainstream notable peeps on the song.

    BG’s verse is what the song title embodies to the fullest.

    and Game is takin his trip thru memory lane and did it quite well indeed.

    overall a great look for Saigon gettin one of the West’s most notable new artists and then a Southern Legend in his own right wit B.G. all on the same track.

    BG Got on this track cuz he’s on Atlantic, and Atlantic had to get some more free buzz for their artist, whether or not he was the right fit for this song.

    hol on nigga dont come at me on that shyt. first and foremost i came up on tha fuckin streets nigga, from detroit (brewster pjs) to cleveland (clair and waste-5) nigga. so dont come at me wit that bullshyt. this tha thing i aint sayin b.g. is always garbage, he wouldnt have been around as long as he’s had if he was. im sayin this dude is garbage and out-of-place on this song cause this aint his type of shyt he be on some gutta type shyt most of tha time, this right herre is some shyt for that introspective,lyrical type dude (i.e. intelligent street nigga), and that aint b.g. so if you dont get wat im sayin go on ahead and stay in that ghetto mindstate that keep us black niggas from doin anything productive.

The nigga just real and get excepted in all hoods. real hood nigga where steet life gets real. no nigga can go to detroit and post up if you not from there unless you a real ass nigga. GIZZLE WAS SPEAKING ON KATRINA THAT SHIT IS REAL TALK, IT MIGHT NOT MEAN NA DAMN THING TO YOU BUT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE GONE FROM THAT SHIT, AND NOW THE SHIT DOESNT EVEN GET NO MORE TV TIME. THEY DONT CARE ABOUT IT CUZ IT WAS NIGGAS THAT WAS LOST. THE WORLD TRADE DIDNT LOSE HALF AS MUCH AS KATRINA DID BUT STILL TO TODAY THEY SHOWIN THAT SHIT ON TV. SO FUCK WHAT YA GOING THROUGH. GIZZLE SPEAKS THE TRUTH

  • Prince Of The South

    Damn Game actually painted a very good picture in his verse, dude stepping it up. This cool, but I like the original better. Saigon my favorite rapper on the underground hope you all drop his record. The climate may not be right for NY rappers but Jive taking a chance with Pap and Hova dropping Tru hell it look like 50 might drop M.O.P. Atlantic can take a chance. You got BG anf TI over there, if Saigon brick put him on tour with them and take a loss. Better drop him now instead of a year or two later and his buzz gone.

    This song is aight. Saigon has the best verse. Game started off good then fell asleep as usual. BG is pretty much BG, neva changes. I think it woulda been ill if Sai got Weezy on this. That dude is underrated man. The next remix should be Jim Jones, Weezy, Sai and whoever else. But overall, good effort.

  • vonnievonn65

    I love the song…and they all did their thing…as far as the game goes…why yall keep hating on the game. Yes he names drops, but that is the unique part about him. I love it…because he tells a story about real people and real things….yes he may rap about similiar stuff in his songs…but he raps about the things he loves….how much more real do you need the dude to get….I am a 42 year old female and never really paid any attention to lyrics until to a song…hell I didnt even buy rap…..Games CD is the first CD I brought in about 17 years. It’s something about he tells his story that makes me come on my computer and want to hear more…..Keep it up GAME…and drop as many names as you want….every time you do it makes me google people to follow your story…oh by the way it’s GGGGGG-not….at least he aint singingggggg dayum………..

  • jr

    Game killed his verse, what do you expect from a WC artist, Saigon had sum deep shit in his verse like always…and B.G. even though he didn’t belong on this track he mentioned sum real situations.

    overall track rating: B+

  • joyjoy

    lol at every1 talkin about game always name droppin. It does get old although this is the first song i heard where his name dropping really has a real point. ya dig. i mean every1 does it. that was especially funny (EReal)this song is dope. i give it an a if not a b+
