The Game has showed his sports appreciation by dropping an NBA 2K10 tribute song for the upcoming video game which features his hometown superstar, Kobe Bryant, on the cover.
Known for his appreciation for video games and holding the No. 1 record in NBA2K10's online competition, Game's new song attempts to pay homage to various NBA squads.
"So amazing, undefeated, who can see him, who can beat him/Nobody, 'cause he's the champion/I'm a legend, I'm the greatest/Many tried but they couldn't fade me/She got me 'cause I'm the champion/Take my time and the victory will be mine/I reigned supreme, never dreamed about being nothing less/On the court in a jersey tangled inside the Nets/Pace yourself, start chasing the Bucks/If you can bypass the moon like a Rocket/Everything ain't pocket/D12 whistlin'/Chromed out engine/Oiled up Pistons, rough around the edge/Who got the Clippers, they do my fade Magic/Like Washington Wizards, so drop the top and spread my wings like a Hawk/Nuggets in my ear, spinnin' Spurs when you walk/One thing about me, never been all talk/Finish around the basket, half-man half-Maverick." ("NBA2K10")
Lil Wayne also released his NBA Finals-based tribute song "Kobe Bryant" earlier this month.
"Kobe 'doin' work', 2-4 on my shirt," Weezy raps. "He the greatest on the court, and I'm the greatest on the verse....2-4 so nice, my flow so mean/Catch me at the game sittin' next to Goldstein/Kobe Bryant Nikes, purple, gold strings/Kobe in the game, homie you know who the team/'Black Mamba,' attack, conquer/basketball Weez, rap monster/cross over good, or turn around jumper/Or I'll just drive the lane and dunk on dunkers/You know where it's going, it's going down yo/This is the late show, but don't drown though/I call him King Bryant, not let the crown show." ("Kobe Bryant")
Game's new track will likely appear on one of his upcoming mixtapes.
The Game is in L.A. right now, working on The R.E.D. Album with Cool & Dre. Although a release date has not been set, The Game will release unofficial projects this summer. "This summer, it ain't a n*gga that's gonna out-mixtape me," Game said in an interview. "I'm dropping a mixtape every week. It ain't gonna be like no bullsh*t mixtape sh*t. I'm dropping mixtapes that sound better than people's albums. The first one is gonna be the Bloody Thumb with the red thumb print on the front." (MTV)
The rapper's hometown team won the NBA Finals last Sunday (June 14).
Congratulations to the Los Angeles Lakers, who earned their first NBA championship in seven years and 15th overall with a 99-86 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday night. In the end, Los Angeles' defense was just as up to the task as Los Angeles' vaunted offense. The team circled the wagons after Orlando busted out with a 28-point first quarter. Orlando's screen-and-roll attack was barely a factor, as the Lakers' spacing and efficient perimeter shooting on the other end made this a one-sided game by halftime. (Yahoo Sports)
