  • Jr from Cant Remember, NeAlthough it is about the Yertunde Price incident it is also about one of The Game's come downs from being high off weed when he is in one of those half-asleep states seeing two of his favorite stars saying something to each other that he was probably thinkin about for his own life untill that moment.
  • Keriah from Naples, Fli love this song and i love game in fact i was in love with him for a couple weeks he is very talented. This is a great song one of the better rap songs and the Game is a very talented rapper like Nas said game is going to be a force to be reconded with in the future.
  • Tyler from Prospect, Pai thought it was about more thigs then just that. well idk havent listend in a while, and game is one of the best rappers now, and he is really from the streets and still does his thing there. most rappers now adays are sitting in there mansion forgetting about where they came from.
  • Nikki from Buffalo, Sdthe game teaches us about somethings in history.
  • Elliot from St. Louis, MoThis is a great song, and The Game is one of the best rappers out there. Have you ever noticed if you look at the game, and diverge your eyes (that thing where you try to go crosseyed and you see double, yet it is kind of blurry) he ind of looks like Will Smith.
  • Ben from Manchester, Englanda great peice of music and touching when you listen to the song and understand it this song could be about times when he had trouble writing and times of trouble in general and possibly looking after his son on his own and by the way the date when yetunde price was killed was ,sunday september 14 2002 ... this song is incredible
