Draftkings The Game

Draftkings The Game

Hip-hop and basketball go hand-in-hand, so much so that we’ve seen more athletes and rappers crossover to the booth and court, respectively.  Over time, the lines between the two worlds became blurred. Artists like J. Cole and Master P entered professional basketball leagues in their careers while Dame Lillard and Shaq have proven to be formidable MCs on the mic. While Rick Ross isn’t necessarily a top draft pick in the NBA, he undoubtedly has an appreciation for the sport.

In partnership with Draft Kings, Ross teamed up with The Lox and Fat Joe for a new single titled, “The Game.” Buda & Grandsz, Mike Kuz, and Setfree handle the elegant production, equipped with looming 808s and orchestral violins. JadakissStyles P, Rick Ross, and Fat Joe draw parallels from graduating the streets to the music industry to athletes striving for a trophy with bars filled with excellent basketball wordplay.

The new single from Rick Ross, The LOX, and Fat Joe arrives during the 2023 NBA Play-In Tournament, which began earlier this week. “The Game” will be heard throughout the tournament’s commercial breaks on ESPN’s Play-In broadcast. It’s not only a great look but an excellent combination of iconic talents who continuously show out whenever they step to the mic.

The new single from Rick Ross marks one of his first releases of the year, outside the string of features he delivered. He hopped on records with Richie Evans, Playboy Rated-R, and most recently, Drei. However, he’s yet to announce a follow-up to Richer Than I Ever Been, which arrived in late 2021. He has since announced that he’s gone independent. Meanwhile, The LOX continue their excellent run.

There’s nothing like the feeling (Uh) of being in the building (Yeah)
All of a sudden the good guys turn into the villains
Pure satisfaction inside of the action
You see it in the games, you feel it in the captions (Feel it)
This is full contact, winning is a contract (Win)
Don’t ever forget that losing is a setback (Yeah)
You can learn a lot though, it’s all about the clock though
Win lose or draw, the game never stops though
(Never) Worry ’bout the critics or the analytics
This ain’t something you play, you really have to live it
Half the battle is knowing, to prove is to show ’em (Show ’em)
But they won’t see you coming, until they see you going (Gone)
Soar as high as you can, don’t ever stop flying (Fly)
There is heaven in winning, and hell in not trying (Try)
Face all fears (Uh), before they face you (Yeah)
And don’t chase victory, let it chase you (The game)

On top of the mountain, I won’t follow you cowards (Uh)
All I need is a pilot, and a proper accountant
They keep knocking me down, but I’m not to be doubted
Keep the pain to myself, but we sharing the knowledge
Always ready for battle (Uh), true success is a war (Uh)
Always follow your heart, know you’re destined for more
Living like I’m Young Thugger (Bang), winning shot at the buzzer
Do it all for my …, VIP for my mother (Woo)
This one just for the books (Uh), top off just for the looks (Uh)
I’m rocking my jewels, no stepping on my foot
Just believe in yourself ’cause you’re meant to be great
We have similar dreams, but make different mistakes

Life’s like an empty canvas
Either you paint it with blood, or you paint it with love
Me, I’m with all the above
All I see is the glory in a room filled with all the applause
No excuses, all I see is winners tonight
And the truth is, I want to see the winners unite
Damn, dawg, why you always happy, what’s the big occasion?
Life’s great, and I’m feeling amazing (Joker)
You fall for anything if you waitin’ for help
Me, I stand tall ’cause I bet on myself
Hit ’em with the Shammgod, then the Euro step
Fade away, all you hear is the net
Life’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you get
No doubt, I simply know I’m the best
When you have your own forces with your name on it
Terror be the squad, that’s why I spit this game on it
Yo, it’s crack

Practice my shootin’, came from the bench (From the bench)
You bound for victory if you really playing defense
Told the players on my team, “If I play, I play to win” (Play to win)
And I’m one of the best, let me say it again (I’m one of the best)
I’m never afraid of contact, physical on the block, imagine my next contract
And I shoot it from deep, I love a hype crowd
Mama, there goes that man that puts your lights out (That man)
In a series of seven, I’m in the seven series
I pull up to arenas, them boys better fear me (Better fear me)
Got dog in my heart, yeah, they better hear me
Going for MVP, hope I said it clearly (Said it clearly)
