The Game Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I went to see a friend of mine the other day
Ya know what I'm talkin' 'bout?
She said, "Banner, you need to harmonize and hide"
Yeah, okay

But I asked her I was like, "How can a nigga be a fuckin' snitch?"
You don't even snitch on yo' fuckin' enemies, you coward-ass nigga
Kill those niggaz, I'm really, really high
Ain't no respect to the game no mo', niggaz is bitches

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
The streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
The streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

I hit the block before it's sunrise
I want to know where you bitch niggaz went and hide
Went to sleep, open my eyes then I realize
Time to serve 'em weak, clock her ass and mash out

Get ya cash out, why ya motherfuckers sleep and ya passed out
I'm in the hood tryin' to make a G before nine
Five thirty, took a break and I'm back on the grind
Four ten, put some Dro in the wind then

Let it go, 'cause ya know that a nigga gone
Tell she if a nigga get busted
Niggaz can't be trusted in the game, 'cause shit ain't the same
Motherfuckers want me to blow out they brain

Shit cocked and blast
Put some lead in a motherfucker fast
Never play wit a gun, if ya can't stop that
Or get that in ya motherfuckin' ass

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
The streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
The streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

Took a chance when I came in
Did my time if I got caught
If I lost, it was my fault
Took the blame for the whole thing

And it was the work, it was my walk
To do or double wit the plot then
Let a nigga fellin' boxed in
I was slangin' in my socks then

On the corner flippin' twenty's
Tryin' to turn 'em into fifty's
On the ten speed right in front of walk in
It's no hood where I came from

Where a nigga got his game from
Ain't nothin' changed, I'm the same one
To pull a strap out my backpack
Cock the hammer back
Duck and get ya brains hung

And shake the cop up when the block clear
'Cause the drama doesn't stop here
Gotta watch for ya own peers
Nigga damn near ain't knowin' who the fuck I am
And you ain't knowin' how I got here

See we don't speak and we don't do nothin'
It's on you if you slang things
Get your money, homie, maintain
Keep yo' motherfuckin' mouth shut, dawg
Or you'll get offset and this a cold game

And snitch-niggaz never last long
So snitch-niggaz get yo' ass on
A snitch-nigga get yo' mask on
Took the pledge on my own hand
Then killed a rose motherfucker in my last song

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
The streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

I done lost my love for the game
Shit'll never be the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

Might of lost my love for the game
Niggaz don't even act the same
I'll never lose my love for the streets
'Cause the streets got love for me

I done lost, yeah
