  • Lyrics
  • This features The Game's labelmate Keyshia Cole.
  • In this song The Game pays homage to various hip-hop pioneers who have paved the way for artists such as him. The artists he lists include: Biggie, Will Smith, Nas, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, NWA, Ice Cube (who he says is his favorite rapper), New Edition, Naughty By Nature, Tony! Toni! Tone! Wu-Tang Clan, Jay-Z, and Big Daddy Kane. Featured artist Keyshia Cole adds that Mary J Blige paved the way for her.
  • The song title appears to be misleading as with a title like "Pain" the listener does not expect an ode to Hip-Hop's elder statesmen.
