Game always liked to talk about how Dr. Dre’s his mentor and role model.
[Chorus: Shorty of Da Lench Mob] Its still Aftermath, and ain't nothing after that
But I hear every word they say I didn't mean to walk away
You gave him something that can make or break a nigga, you should face it Rreminiscin' about my day with your blood all over my slate
[Chorus: Shorty of Da Lench Mob] The album’s title and the titular track that follows pays tribute to Game’s relationship with Dre, using words like “father” and “family” on numerous songs to mark their relationship—Dre’s name is heavily mentioned throughout the album as well. Without having label support I made “One Blood” I gave it to Jim Jones he gave it to Kay Slay who started playing it in clubs then DJ Clue, Angie Martinez, Funk Flex and everybody started playing it in clubs. I dug his spirit, and I thought the dude was talented as fuck For all the [niggas] who just hate me individually and I hate you too. For all the [niggas] that said 50 killed my career.
Rreminiscin' about my day with your blood all over my slate Most of the time I let 'em know, I don't agree with what he do
Ever since the album’s release, it has been heavily regarded as Game’s best body of work by his fans and himself. The whole second album is dedicated to Dre, its title, Doctor’s Advocate being a reference to him. Doctor's Advocate lyrics performed by The Game: (Feat. Thinkin' what the fuck am I without a Doctor Dre track
Wha-whats that? So I owe you my life, when I betrayed you Get in the fuckin' car man, we gotta bounce man As the devil sings la-la-la
Type reserved, homie was quite and kept his mouth shut I made the money back but that’s what happened. Busta Rhymes) [The Game] Yo Bus, I think I got.... the answer to all my problems... [Busta Rhymes] The fuck you talkin' bout, n***a, what's that?
The problems caused by Game pushed the label not to show the same support they had for him. When Doc say its a wrap, its a wrap I guess my mind just drew a blank, like la-la-la Its still Aftermath and ain't nothing after that Production is handled by Scott Storch, Just Blaze, Hi-Tek and Swizz Beatz to name a few. And niggas stopped bumpin' Dre after Dee Barnes got slapped The Game Lyrics "Doctor's Advocate" (feat.
B: Look, get your fuckin' ass up nigga
B: Aiyo, Game! And even though sometimes I run loose The only problem was our little nigga wouldn't listen Game’s lyricism shows a vast improvement and his bassy, terrific and raspy voice bring out his personality on the album’s cloudy, melodic heavy West Coast sounding production—whether it is somber sounding personal tracks like “Ol' English”, and “Doctor’s Advocate,” or club bangers like “Let’s Ride” and “It’s Okay (One Blood)”. G: Belvedere and Banana Snapple My favourite joint on the album which is called “Compton” where I pay homage to my hometown, my city, where I’m from.
Dre, I ain't mean to turn my back on you This is it right here for all the [niggas] that don’t know how to swallow pills. I made a choice, now its be Crip or be Piru As the devil sings la-la-la [Chorus: Shorty of Da Lench Mob] Now I'm sittin' in this god damned cage As the devil sings la-la-la I tried to think of what the fuck, Eminem might do, And niggas stopped bumpin' Dre after Dee Barnes got slapped, Its still Aftermath, and ain't nothing after that, I never said Thank You, and I took for granted, But you told me it was okay to say Fuck The Police, Thinkin' what the fuck am I without a Doctor Dre track.
And put the drink down nigga. Even though the album was mostly recorded on the East Coast it still manages to sound like a West Coast project with its combination of sampling and live instrumentation. "Doctor's Advocate" lyrics. B: Fuck you talkin' about nigga? The intro to the song samples Up Against The Wind. You fuckin' look like Ned the Wino, you drunk motherfucker
[Outro: Game & Busta Rhymes] Let me walk you up to the.. come on...
That’s what this album is to me, to my fans, to the world, to Hip-Hop. And I still got the chain that you wore on the cover of The Source
B: We at your crib, nigga, get the fuck out the car nigga, get up, man!
Remember, I'm from Compton too
G: I got love for you, Bus', you my nigga
[Intro: Game & Busta Rhymes] Wake up, nigga!
But I'm a man, and sometimes a man, do what he gotta do For all the [niggas] that said I wouldn’t be able to do it without Dr. Dre. Now I'm eatin' with you, Eve, and Busta Rhymes So big, I don't even think he was ready to embrace it [Verse 1: Game] If every nigga hated him, for the Black Bitch track I had a choice, be like Mike, or be like you I tried to think of what the fuck, Eminem might do In an interview with HipHopDX, Game unveiled how he ‘convinced’ the label to press his album. I saw you and Eazy in 'em, so I started wearin' Khaki suits But you told me it was okay to say Fuck The Police When Doc say its a wrap, its a wrap But when Doc say its a wrap, it's a wrap We gotta go nigga
G: I'm a man...and most of these niggas, they don't know how to be a man. B: What the fuck you talkin' about nigga? Now its my turn to carry the torch (Day after day, feel like I...) Now I'm sittin' in this god damned cage See when the world is on your shoulder and the stress grows bigger
I guess my mind just drew a blank, like la-la-la [Verse 2: Game] But he a hardhead Dre, that's why I'm talkin' to you
On the Doctor’s Advocate Bonus DVD Game also explains: The concept for the Doctor’s Advocate is payback. [Verse 3: Busta Rhymes]
