    it just shows how dumb some of yous are,listen to the fucken lyrics of this song was well after the first one!!

  • Geoffrey the Butler

    for all u fuckin clowns givin 50 credit for this classic album take a look at this..... http://www.complex.com/music/2011/02/the-making-of-the-games-the-documentary/ 50 helped with a couple hooks thats it..

    the other version is better...this one soundz fake...

    50 wrote 6songs on The Documentary not just "How We do" and "Hate it or Love it" 50 cent help Game n his career lift off, look how long it took Game to come out, nigga was around since "In Da Club" look at the video..it clear he aint have good material until he had Dr dre production n 50's writing

  • B-Dub

    Dope. Of course, he's grown as a lyricist and as an MC over the years, but 50 Cent had no sort of 'artist development' role with Game, ever, never, not once, nada. 50 wrote 3 hooks on The Documentary and his own verses, that's it, none of Game's, ever, never. Game has NEVER had a ghostwriter and no one else writes his lyrics. These ignorant haters online wanna judge his entire body of work after they've heard maybe 10 singles. Listen to his raw mixtapes, he's done over 450 songs, he's a true MC, a true Hip Hop head and he's next in-line to the throne of the West right after Ice Cube, Dre and Snoop. Deal with it! (And Kendrick 'K-Dot' Lamar is after Game)

    • matt

      ^fags, game the realest nigga in rap right now, he saved west coast gangsta rap, and hes 100x better than any southern rap, if you can even consider that bull shit hip hop

    • Anonymous

      Game a real MC. LOL. ''Can take my soul, can't take my plaques''. This nigga crying about Hip Hop and pays Pop stars only to sing on his shitty album.

    • Agree

      Game admits to having a lot of help with his "Documentary" CD. There is multiple proof that 50 helped him a redic. amount. Now that being said.. Game is a real MC and has proven himself after his debut that he can still make some good songs.. no one is taking that from him, just simply stating he has a shit load of help getting his career listed off from Fif.

  • YALL DUMB AS FUCK!!!!

    this aint no fuckin original..... the documentary which has tha original came out in JANUARY OF 05..... 9-11 was 2001, 5 years later wuld be 2006............yall dumb as fuck smh

  • Brandon Hamm

    Very cool take on the song... Original, remix or whatever, I enjoyed it.

  • rebel2society

    someone said it. It felt very undirected.. I can see where people like Dre 50 and Em might've had a hand in molding it into something that was much more appealing to the mainstream ie RADIO. Definitely shows that Game was on the right track though..

  • Aaron Martinez

    this would never have made it on the radio

      50 turned this fucking piece of undirected garbage into a great song, you and Gayme should be thankful as fuck.

  • Casey Jones

    i don't know where you clowns are getting the idea that 50 "rewrote" this. Dreams was never one of the songs 50 ever claimed to have had a hand in. It's more likely that this is a demo Game was dissatisfied with and went back to change.

  • Geoffrey the Butler

    wow u guys cant be serious..... 50 makes good music but he is FAR less superior to game when it comes to lyrics #bereal Game has BEEN namedroppin since the documentary so thats how you KNOW he wrote those lyrics

      You have to be out of your mind, 50 is faaar superior when it comes to wrtiing SONGS. Massacre had poppy beats, but the lyrics were fucking great for a gangsta rapper.

      Dont u see it, isnt it clear nw dat game aint a gud song writer, I mean, listn to the structure of these verses, the is no substence or flow or even story, its random and hs sayin da wrong shit at da wrong time. Wen 50 said he wrote his recordz he meant dat he gave game the direction to go and he wrote al da hooks probly, 50 know how to write a full song thats goin to be playd for a while, he know how to hook u, and its a art to do dat. Game is good wen it comes to punchlines but if you cant fit those punches in a propper structure or if u cnt Write a story or a ful track then you need to b guided, give up game fans, this proofs that game cant write, I mean usher? Nd u sup0se to b a blood? No wonder 50 ign0red this fool smh

    This isnt an original, it was made after/during his feud w 50cent. Pretty cool verses, esp the opening line. The original is better, but this is getting added to the ipod when the studio quality version comes out

  • Loved it

    This song is awesome. And I don't care about the background noise about 50 says he wrote Game's album bs. 50 Cent cant really rap and has fallen off you guys who are saying that 50 Cent wrote for Game are dilusional because 50 cent's best rhymes sounds nothing like Game's verses. Come on get real.

  • Irv

    this had to be re written after the one on the album because he says watch the twin towers fall in 2001 5 years later which is 2006 a year after the documentary was dropped plus the music video dropped in june and he said luther vandross rosa parks and richard pryor had a dream they all died after the day it dropped... just tryna clarify

  • Rrrrrr

    50 needs to ruin game...him and lil wayne 4 real

  • THE REALLEST COMMENT ON SUBJECT

    how can you hate on this track, you people are weak, a bunch of no good pussies. "walking through my neighborhood letting the ink from my pen bleed"- Game. the beat by kanye, and the work by game, that alone deserves respect. if 50 wrote lines it was after they all had a part, all inspiring off eachother's work. reason there isn't much good music becuase faggets like you. Kanye inspired dreams,Game went off on some good positive shit, then if 50 wrote anything it was only . They all inspired eachother, you people are the reason why no good music since.

  • Maxwell Harkness

    wow 50 really made this damn track worth listening to... no wonder The Documentary is sooooo much better than anything else Game released.

    This sucks... 50 wrote it way better and even incorporated some of his own lines that he used like "I had dreams of fucking a RnB bitch..." 50 used that line in one of his songs in his very first album that never got released. But see, thats why Game's a bitch. 50 helped him out so much and even recruited him to his G-Unit crew which was huge at that time and he fucking just backstabs 50. I'm glad RED album aint even Gold.

  • Anonymous

    This is how you destroy a great beat with your terrible rapping. So glad that 50 took this to a whole other level.

  • Anonymous

    I had dreams of making an rnb hit like usher when I see him on my mtv screen got posters of him (...) what the fuck? sound a lil' gay, just sayin' this is wack as fuck, glad that 50 made him re wrote this, cause this would have been a fucking disgrace to this amazing beat

    • craig carroll

      your telling me that you aint or had a posters of a "male" artist on your wall like 2pac big snoop? or who ever you like? its not gay at all n your a fag for sayin that

  • RED

    Game top 5 dead or alive

  • craig carroll

    lmfao can tell most of you know nothing about hip hop...when you are a artist you dont just write one song for a beat you do about 3 or 4 soo all off you sayin 50 wrote the offiacal dreams need to crawl back up your mums pussies n develop abit more....

  • Anonymous

    if you believe 50 wrote the original track, you'll believe anything. You are so stupid, nothing can save you. 50 might have wrote Hate it or love it and How we do. I knew that as soon as i listened to those two tracks. I knew Game always go hard , and his lyrics on those 2 songs were super soft like Kanye West's raps. But those 2 pop songs turned out to be the biggest singles off the album. 50 , the gangsta should be ashamed, he writes pop singles better. That said , Game is a far better rapper than 50. In fact, he is the closest to Tupac on the West coast hiphop scenes. respect to Ice Cube, but it has to be said. Now, many people go on calling Game gay but in the reality YOU ARE THE GAY MUTHERFUCKERS. You are so gay, you worship these celebrities like you know them personally. LIKE THE MUSIC EVEN IF YOU DONT LIKE THE RAPPER YOU BUNCH OF FAGGOTS! you mean after, tracks like Dreams, church for thugs, like father like son,100 bars, 240 bars, documentary,one blood, too much, born in the trap,ricky,the city, you mutherfuckers still think 50 wrote his rhymes? YOU SHOULD KILL YOURSELF, cos there aint no cure for stupidity. This is the main reason Illmatic didn't go platinum till a year later and rappers like Reakwon never sold beyond Gold status. too many gay rap fans, thats why!

      STOP IT!!! You're so fucking gay, your statement is the empitome of a dickrider. Kill yourself, Tupac is rolling over in his grave right now, it's a discgrace to compare him to such an untalented label-made image pussy like Gayme is one. He's soooo dumb and can't make a decent song for shit. ''You are so gay, you worship these celebrities like you know them personally'' What did you just do, you fucking faggot? And don't ever make the same mistake to mention Gayme, the biggest clown ever, in the same sentence as Raekwon and Nas, and going even further and saying Gayme deserves more success. GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!! A whore that begs the whole pop industry for features on his album, because he KNOWS that his career nearing it's end. NOT the SLIGHTEST artistical growth. STILL the SAME dumb fuck he was SIX YEARS ago. That gangsta shit is played the fuck out and he isn't creative enough to do something else. He's a relict of long gone times. A WHACK ass rapper who is going to break the record for EXCESSIVE name calling and REPEATING the words ''Dre'', ''Eazy-E'', ''Pac'', ''64's'', ''Air Force Ones'' ''Chucks'' and ''gangbanging''. The only good album was The Documentary and he did nothing instead of rapping a whole lot of meaningless verses into preconstructed songs. He should be glad that the AMAZING beats carried his WEAK ass through them. A shame that he didn't retire like he said he would, biggest disgrace EVER!!! WHACK ASS, HERE TODAY, GONE TOMMOROW MUSIC SUPPLIED BY A TREND-FOLLOWING, EVER CHANGING PUSSY WITH NO RHYMING SKILLS!!!

      game is not a well liked rapper and he has himself to blame for it. i don't like him but he is great rapper, if not the greatest of his generation. he was probably having fun with this. and it looks like hiphopdx have turned their backs on him.

    To all you people hating on this, it lets me know how bad the rap fans are. In this version he actually rappin about more positive realistic dreams. Plus it wasn't even mastered. He had some whack rhymes in here but he had his good ones. Overall this had a more positive message and ppl hate on it. smh stop pole jockin and hatin n recognize good music. (tho unmastered)

    50 should've never made this dude a star, he's sooo fucking whack. Unbelievable, how can a rapper who takes himself seriously write something like this and go even further to record it? This makes 50 look like Shakespeare. Here is the truth, Game is nothing more than Gucci Mane or other whack dudes as a rapper, he has NO skills.

  • 123kid

    i dnt get it so did 50 write the other one which was better? or did Game jus write two versions? Either way the other released one was an incredible song from a classic (and only classic)albulm by the Game.

    Game always had a dope flow and a good rapping voice, but he's more than limited when it comes to his writing skills.

  • gerryd

    You 50 cent fans are out your mind. This was done after he done the original LMAO. He even has a few lines talking about his 50 cent beef. Stupid people will be stupid. When 50 says he wrote games shit hes talking about the courses to Hate it or love, This is how we do and all the other 50 cent features that released as singles and the Doctors advocate CD proves that game didn't need 50 to write shit because that album was even better than the documentry and 50 wasn't there to help him with that LMAO.

    • gerryd

      Yep just like how Eminem and Dr Dre made 50. This is how the industry works. Before Eminem came along knowbody would even work with 50 cent cause the dude snitched on a song. Then eminem and Dre built this niggas rep. If it wasn't for eminems fans and the support eminem and dre gave him on Get Rich or Die trying 50 would have stayed an independant 20k record sales nigga and Power of the Dollar and the other albums he released proves that shit
