"He Got Game" as written by and Stephen/ridenhour Stills....
It might feel good
It might sound a little somethin'
But damn the game if it don't mean nothin'
What is game who got game
Where's the game in life behind the game behind the game
I got game
She's got game
We got game
They got game
He got game
It might feel good
Or sound a little somethin'
But fuck the game if it ain't saying nothin'

If man is the father the son is the center of the earth
In the middle of the universe
Then why is this verse coming six times rehearsed
I don't freestyle much but write 'em like such (word)
Amongst times controlled by the screen
What does it all mean all this shit I'm seeing
Human beings screaming vocal javelins
Sign of the local nigga unraveling
My wonderin' got ass wonderin'
Where Christ is in all this crisis
Hating Satan never knew what nice is
Check the paper while I bet on ices
Keep more than your eye can see and ears can hear
Year by year all the sense disappears
Nonsense preserves prayers laced with fear
Beware the two triple o is near

There is something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Tellin' me I got to beware
It's time to stop children what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Thought of that millennium just be killing them
It scary like lies buried in a library
When did state pen correct anything
When piles of us still be catchin' the bus
When stacks of cash packed in laundromats
Pay the preachers back where the teachers at
I ain't even gotta ask it
Whose underpaid and got fouled at the basket
I can't blame the envy at who be getting all the benjis
And taking them grants for granted
Last I checked pyramids wasn't built like projects
On them government checks
Modern day thugs ain't got no guts
Pardon the expression under governor nuts
Last time in a church be the last time in a church
Dead pledge allegiance to CD's and movies
Leaving reality believing in fantasy
Bleeding fatalities too many formalities
Prayers laced with fear
Beware the two trip zero is here

    General CommentStipje:

    That's called sampling, the most widely used technique in rap music production. How can you like PE but hate sampling? There is at least a couple samples in almost all of their songs.

    Besides, this sample works perfectly and its only the two notes. It certainly doesn't ruin For What It's Worth, thats ridiculous.

    Anyway, this really is a legendary rap song. Everything about this song is perfect, the sample, the rhymes, the beat, the gospel choir and Flav's end-of-song message.

    General CommentHow to ruin a great song (Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth). Don't get me wrong, I like PE, but I really dislike the "use a cacthy rock-tune to make a rapsong"-technique.:/
