  • I woke up out that coma 2001
    'bout the same time Dre dropped 2001
    Three years later the album is done
    Aftermath presents: Nigga Witta Attitude, Volume One
    Rap critics politickin, wanna know the outcome
    Ready to Die, Reasonable Doubt and Doggystyle in one
    I feel like 'Pac after the Snoop Dogg trial was done
    Dre behind that G series and All Eyez on Me
    I watched the death of a dynasty, so I told Vibe Magazine
    Workin' with Dr. Dre was a (dream)
    I had visions of makin a classic, then my world turned black
    Like I was starin' out of Stevie Wonder's glasses
    It's kinda hard to imagine, like Kanye West
    Coming back from his fatal accident to beatmaking and rapping
    But, we the future, Whitney Houston told me that
    And it's gon' take more than a bullet in the heart to hold me back

    Blushin' in this 40 ounce, lettin' the ink from my pen bleed
    Cause Martin Luther King had a (dream)
    Aaliyah had a (dream), Left Eye had a (dream)
    So I reached out to Kanye and (I brought you all my dreams)
    (Cause I love you, I love you, I love you)

    I had dreams of fuckin' a R&B bitch like Mya
    When I saw that ass on the front of that King
    Read the article in the magazine, she loved gangsters, loved nasty things
    So I'm in the glass house having nasty dreams
    Good girls never give it up
    But anything is possible, if 50 fucked Vivica
    Hurdled life's obstacles, found my way through the maze
    Then joy turned to pain like Frankie Beverly and Maze
    Used to dream of being Unsigned Hype
    'til I was crushed by Dave Mays, almost let my pen fall asleep on the page
    Daydreamin' yesterday, dozin' off backstage
    I thought I saw Eazy talking to Jam Master Jay
    So I walked over, heard Jam Master say
    "It's a hard knock life, then you pass away"
    They say sleep is the cousin of death, so my eyes wide open
    Cause a dream is kin to your last breath

    Blushin' in this 40 ounce, lettin' the ink from my pen bleed
    Cause Martin Luther King had a (dream)
    Aaliyah had a (dream), Left Eye had a (dream)
    So I reached out to Kanye and (I brought you all my dreams)
    (Cause I love you, I love you, I love you)

    The dream of Huey Newton that's what I'm livin' through
    The dream of Eric Wright, that's what I'm givin you
    Who walked through the White House without a business suit
    Compton hat, jheri curl drippin on Ronald Reagan's shoes
    Gave Mike Lem my demo, came here to pay my dues
    Started off with Whoo Kid, then I start blazin' Clue
    It was all a dream like Big said it'd be
    Don't sleep on me homey, I bring nightmares to reality
    Rap phenomenon, defyin' the rules of gravity
    Studied all the classics, start revisin' my strategy
    Cause Marshall Mathers made it, Curtis Jackson made it
    Head in the clouds, wonderin' where the hell Marvin Gaye went
    How do I say this? I'm livin' for my son
    But I can't figure out, why I'm at my temple with this gun
    Wake up to a Jesus piece like a catholic nun
    The war to be a rap legend, has just begun

    Blushin' in this 40 ounce, lettin' the ink from my pen bleed
    Cause Martin Luther King had a (dream)
    Aaliyah had a (dream), Left Eye had a (dream)
    So I reached out to Kanye and (I brought you all my dreams)
    (Cause I love you, I love you, I love you)

    This song is dedicated to Yetunde Price
    The sister of Venus and Serena Williams
    Who was slain during a gang shootout in Compton

  • 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
