The Message

This song is by Dr. Dre, features Mary J. Blige and Nell and appears on the album 2001 (1999).

This one is for my brother, Tyree, R.I.P.
A message to God

Since you finishing em early, what possessed you to start him?
We made a vow, later we'll regret till death do us part
Lord, I thought we was made for each other
You shouldn't connect those, made to be taken away from each other
Now what I'm supposed to do? I'm only half the man that I was
I'll never last 'cause my better half is up there with you
You knew what you was doing when you made us; so with all due respect
You coulda forgave him, you didn't have to take him
He can take the game with him 'cause he defines the word
The one who puts the G in it, who you think put me in it?
I'm feeling like my whole world is blinded, wondering why
Crying, pouring out my heart, pouring out liquor behind it
We fought like brothers, something we never should do
We coulda used time spent arguing telling the truth
He had talent too, I had plans on watching him grow
Don't know what hurts more, seeing him leave, or watching him go

Mary J. Blige:
Listen listen listen, listen, listen (Whoa)
Listen listen listen, better listen (Whoa)
Listen listen listen
Listen, mmm-mmm-mmm

Rell and Mary J. Blige:
If you wanna know why (Why I live my life)
The way that I do ('Cause I got to get this money)
So don't worry about me ('Cause I know my way around)
I'm just hustlin everyday, runnin this race, makin this paper

Dr. Dre:
You'se a soldier, you're probably packing heat up there
Met up with homies from the street, and got deep up there
If you only knew the way I felt before they ruined the crew
I thought I learned from Eazy, now I'm going through it with you
We lost a thug, a son, and a father
I spoke to your son, the other day, and told him Uncle Dre got him
The Lord must be accidentally pulling your file
'Cause I'm still paging you, 911, straight in denial
Prayin you get it, but no man can choose the card he was dealt
You either quit, or you gon' play it like you get it
I done been through all emotions, from in shock, to keeping a poker face
To straight breaking down and showing all emotions
I'm anxious to believe in real G's don't cry
If that's the truth, then I'm realizing I ain't no gangsta
It's just not me, but you know I'mma always ride wit you
I miss you, sometimes I wish I just died with you

Mary J. Blige:
Listen listen listen, listen, listen (Whoa)
Listen listen listen, better listen (Whoa)
Listen listen listen
Listen

Rell and Mary J. Blige:
If you wanna know why (Why I live my life)
The way that I do ('Cause I got to get this money)
So don't worry about me (Don't worry, don't worry)
I'm just hustlin everyday, runnin this race, makin this paper

Mary J. Blige:
Yeah, yeah, ahh, listen, mmm
If you don't know why I, you gotta listen up right now
Listen, listen, listen, listen
Oh, oh
Listen, listen
Ah oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, ooh
Ya, listen
Listen, children listen
I'm tryin to tell you somethin good
Don't get caught up in the hood
Yeah, yeah, whoa
If you don't know why
You gotta find out the reason why
Brother, brother

Tommy Chong:

Come on, dude, I'll, hey I'll split whatever I get with you, okay?
Ah, the chronic
