The Game Westside Story
The Game Westside Story

Sixteen years ago, Compton rapper The Game inked a deal with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, beginning work on the project that would eventually become The Documentary. Released on this day sixteen years ago, Game’s debut album is widely hailed as a classic, boasting several bangers from Dr. Dre, who laced five of the album’s eighteen tracks. One such track was the album’s lead single “Westside Story,” a worthy introduction to everything the young lyricist stood for. Which is to say, representing Compton to the fullest, spitting premium gangsta rap bars, and namedropping to his heart’s content.

Behind the boards, Dr. Dre holds it down with a typically minor-key piano banger, over which Game wastes little time in setting a menacing tone. “Gangbanging is real, homie, I’m living proof, Like Snoop Dogg C-walking on top of the Devil’s roof,” he spits. “Rap critics wanna converse about this and that, cause red strings in his Converse and this a Dre track.” While some may have since turned on the Compton legend, it’s impossible to deny that “Westside Story” remains a banger to this day, one that stands as a worthy anthem to the west coast’s storied history. Even sixteen years later, the masterful chemistry between Dre and Game still shines, capturing an era that many still hold in high esteem.

Lyrics

[Intro: The Game]
Crip niggas, Blood niggas, eses, Asians
Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, white boys, Jamaicans
Latin Kings, Disciples, Vice Lords, Haitians
All these motherfuckers been patiently waitin’

[Verse 1: The Game]
Since the West Coast fell off, the streets been watching
The West Coast never fell off, I was ‘sleep in Compton
Aftermath been here, the beats been knocking
Nate Dogg doing his thing, DPG still popping
I got “California Love,” fuckin’ bitches to that ‘Pac shit
And Westside Connection been had it locked, bitch
I’m in the rear-view, my guns is cocking
I put red dots on a nigga head like Rodman
All Stars, fat laces, gun charge, court cases
Fought that, not guilty, I’m back, niggas hate me
Been there, done that, sold crack, got jacked
Got shot, came back, jumped on Dre’s back
Payback, homie, I’m bringing C.A. back
And I don’t do button-up shirts or drive Maybachs
All you old record labels tryna advance
Aftermath bitch, take it like a motherfucking man

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game, tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)

[Verse 2: The Game]
I’m low-riding, homie, six-trey Impala
Gold Ds spinning, chrome hydraulics
Run up on my lo-lo, you stop breathing
Hollow tips make niggas disappear like Houdini
Gangbanging is real, homie, I’m living proof
Like Snoop Dogg C-walking on top of the Devil’s roof
Rap critics wanna converse about this and that
‘Cause red strings in his Converse, and this a Dre track
Keep jibbing and jabbing, I pull the .38 Magnum
And get to clickin’ and clacking
Your homies wanna know what happened
Come to Compton, see Thriller like Mike Jackson
I might be Spike Lee of this gun clappin’
Prior to rapping, I was drug trafficking
In the dope spot, playing John Madden
Homie, I ain’t bragging, I took five
You wanna die? Run up on that black 7-45

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game, tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)

[Verse 3: The Game]
New York, New York, big city of dreams
I got my L.A. Dodger fitted on, I’m doing my thing
Got me fucking with G-Unit, you know the drama that bring
I got niggas in Westside Compton and Southside Queens
And Buck told me in Cashville, I’m good when I come through
So I ain’t gotta tuck in my chain like DJ Pooh
I’m gangsta—more like Deebo when he was Zeus
Play Bishop, I paint that picture, now, who got the juice?
You niggas is Nutso, I’ll take off your roof
Leave your ass stretched out like a Cadillac coupe
God gotta let me in Heaven, all the shit I’ve been through
I was a O.G. in the hood before I turned twenty-two
Homie, I let the .38 special rip through that vest
And I don’t contemplate whether not he left his shit on the dresser
Got Compton on my back, I’m starting to feel the pressure
I’m lyrically Kool G. Rap on these Dre records

[Chorus: 50 Cent]
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game, tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)
If you take a look in my eyes
See I’ll be a gangsta ’til I die
That California chronic got me so high
Game tell ’em where you from (Nigga, Westside!)
