Inspired by Ice-T’s classic 1988 song “Colors,” The Game vividly recounts his rough upbringing as a youth in Compton, Calif.
“Then one night my pops came home off heroin / S— changed, I’m glad my mama didn’t marry him / Molested my sister that night cause she was scared,” he raps. “My sister came back up the stairs and it was blood on her shirt / Blood on her face, blood on her hands, blood on her legs / Turned on the light and everything was red.”
The second half of the song is called “It’s On,” which features a slow piano-driven groove and rap newcomer Osbe Chill spitting hardcore bars.
“It’s Osbe, gang bangin’ is my hobby,” he proclaims on the track. “Except my model cars is a f—ing dead body / I’m from The Jungles, all the homies call me Barzan / Loading up the clips and hoppin’ out them stolen cars.”
“True Colors/It’s On” follows “92 Bars,” his diss track against Meek Mill. Apparently, the Compton rhymer is mad at the Philadelphia rapper for allegedly snitching on him over a robbery incident involving Sean Kingston.
The Game’s 1992 album will arrive in stores on Oct. 14.
