If there is one thing to know about The Game, it is that he is a massive figure for West Coast hip-hop. Music fans have enjoyed the Compton, California native's tough-guy persona for two decades now. Most of his albums have done a masterful job at amplifying this. One of The Game's two 2008 releases spoke to the pride that showed for his roots. The album that is being celebrated today is LAX.
More specifically, the track "LAX Files," was and still is a terrific cut from a stacked tracklist. The Genius annotation for this song encapsulates what this track is all about. "LAX Files (In reference to the famed show X-Files which investigates and details UFC life) is the 2nd track on Games 2008 album LAX. As the name implies, Game takes us through an X-File type investigation of gang-life and living in Southern LA." But this is not the only way of The Game repping California.

Come to my hood hood, look at my block block
That's that project building, yeah that's where I got shot, shot
