"He Got Game" If man is the father then the son Is the center of the earth In the middle of the universe Then why is this verse coming Six times rehearsed Don't freestyle much so I write 'em like such Amongst the fiends Controlled by the screens What does it all mean All this shit I'm seein Human beings scream vocal javelins Signs of a local nigga unravelin' My wandering Got my ass wondering Where Christ is In all this crisis Hatin' Satan Never knew what nice is Check the papers While I bet on Isis More than your eyes can see And ears can hear Year by year All the sense disappears Nonsense perseveres Prayers laced wit fear Beware 2 triple 0 is near It might feel good It might sound a lil' somethin' But damn the game If it don't mean nuttin' What is game who got game Where's the game In life Behind the game Behind the game I got game She got game We got game They got game He got game It might feel good It might sound a lil' somethin But the fuck the game if it ain't saying nothin' Damn was it somethin I said Pretend you don't see So you turn your head Race scared of it's shadow Does it matter? Thought areparations Got 'em playin' wit the population Nothing to lose Everything's approved People used Even murders excused White men in suits Don't have to jump Still there's 1001 ways To lose wit the shoes God takes care of ol' folks and fools While the devil takes care Of makin' the rules Folks don't even own themselves Payin mental rent To corporate presidents 1 outta 1 million residents Be a dissident Who ain't kissin' it The politics of chains and whips Got the sick Missin' chips and championships What's love got to do Wit what you got Don't let a win get to your head Or a loss to your heart Nonsense perseveres Prayers heed wit fear Beware 2 triple 0 is near It might feel good It might sound a lil' somethin But damn the game If it don't mean nuttin' What is game who got game Where's the game In life Behind the game Behind the game I got game She got game We got game They got game He got game It might feel good It might sound a lil' somethin But the fuck the game if it ain't saying nothin Yeah that's right Everybody got game But we just here to let you all know That PE is in full effect From right now until the year 2000 Hey yo my man sing it There's something happening yeah What it is ain't exactly clear There's a man with a gun over there Telling me I've got to be ready It's time we stop chilling What's that sound Everybody look what's going down It's time we stop chilling What's that sound Everybody look what's going down Hey yo these are some serious times that we living through g And a new world order is about to begin You know what I'm saying Now the question is are you ready For the real revolution Which is the evolution of the mind If you seek then you shall find That we all prove from the divine You dig what I'm saying Now if you take heed To the words of wisdom That are written on the walls of life Then universally we will stand And divided we will fall Cause love conquers all You understand what I'm saying This is a call to all you sleeping souls Wake up and take control of your own cipher And be on the look out for the spirits tonight Trying to steal your light You know what I'm saying Look what beside yourself For peace Give thanks Live life And release You dig me You got me
