"LAX Files" as written by Jayceon Taylor, Jonathan Rotem and Samuel Christian....
Put you're lighters up if you want to

Pull you're motherfucking dodger caps over you're motherfucking eyes
Till you can't see shit
I want you to go blind nigga
So you can feel how I felt when I was in that motherfucking coma

Raised in the city of angels
Where safe and danger switch lanes
So stranger drive slow (drive slow)
Where beggars and gangstas
Fast women and dank are
Just part of the face that we show
We got mountains and ocean
We move in slow motion
Off that sticky that you all love to blow
I swear ain't nothing better there
That's why we all take our hats off to you, the one blood

[Verse 1]
Come to my hood (hood)
Look at my block (block)
That's that project building, yeah that's where I got shot (shot)
Cause I was more hood than Suge
Had more rocks than Jay
More scars in my face than the original Scarface
Or the homeboy Scarface
Al Pacino couldn't be no gangsta
Deniro in casino he no gansta
Wanna be, wanna see, wanna get a shovel, dig tookie up nigga
Cause he know gangstas
Niggas think cause they watch menace a couple times
Seen Cuban boys in the hood and press rewind
That you can survive when a real crip run upon your corner an flex the nine
You must be out of your mind
A real blood will put you out of your mind
So stay the fuck up out of my hood
Or my niggas take you up out of your shine
It ain't a movie dog
Hell yeah it's a real fuckin' Uzi dog
I'm bout to hop inside my impala
Try to keep up, don't loose me yall


[Verse 2]
I know the real O-Dog
And that nigga know the real Game
I call him the rinse tape
And he never been in no gang
But he been in my house (house)
And he set on my couch (couch)
While I put one in the air
So yeah tat nigga know what I'm bout (bout)
I'm bout my hood
I'm bout my block
I'm bout my chips
So if the rap money stop and I punch a clock
Catch you slippin' at a light get out yo shit
We jack niggas, out of towners
And rap niggas, and ball players
Cause we ball player
We chop it up with them trap niggas
We outkast, we big boys
Ludacris with them big toys
Where I'm from there's only two things standing on the corner
Me and that liquor store
Look what the bloods did to Weezy
Look what the crips did to Jeezy
This gangbanger shit ain't nothing to play with
Me and Snoop Dogg just made it look easy


You niggas got this L.A shit real fucked up man

Niggas better start respecting what the fuck we about man

We take niggas the fuck out, this shit ain't no movie dawg

This shit is real crips, bloods, ese

We hold shit down, This is L.A.

Wrote the shit on my face, put a motherfucking star behind
What the fuck I am, starface!

    General CommentWrong lyrics take away so much from the meaning of an incredible song. I agree with the above poster that The Game is explaining life in the hoods of L.A. But it goes in so much deeper than that. He explains the parallels between gangster movies and the real gang life that he's lived. He references the classic gang movies like Scarface and Casino to Boyz In The Hood and Menace II Society.

    First correction:

    "Seen Cuban boys in the hood and press rewind"

    "See Cube in Boyz In The Hood and press rewind" referencing Ice Cube as Doughboy in the 1991 classic, Boyz In The Hood.

    Second correction:

    "I know the real O-Dog
    And that nigga know the real Game
    I call him the rinse tape
    And he never been in no gang"

    "I know the real O-Dog
    And that nigga know the real Game
    I call him Larenz Tate
    And he ain't ever been in no gang" referencing Larenz Tate the actor playing the obstructive and careless O-Dog in Menace II Society.

    Third correction and I may be wrong but:

    "that's why we all take our hats off to you, the one blood"

    I really think he's saying:

    "That's why we all take our hats off to you for one more" since this is reportedly The Game's final album. How fitting that the world commends The Game on painting a portrait of real gang life one last time when gangster rap has lost its luster over the years.

    Very well put-together song.
