[Dr. Dre]
This one is for my brother, Tyree, R.I.P.

A message to God

[Dr. Dre]
Since you finishin' em early, what possessed you to start him?
We made a vow - later we'll regret til 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 doin' when you made us; so with all due respect
You could of 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 feelin' like my whole world is blinded - wonderin' why
Cryin', pourin' out my heart, pourin' out liquor behind it

We fought like brothers, somethin' we never should do
We could of used time spent arguin' tellin' the truth
He had talent too - I had plans on watchin' him grow
Don't know what hurts more - seein' him leave, or watchin' him go

[Mary J. Blige]
Listen listen listen.. (listen) whoahh (listen)
Listen listen listen.. (better listen) whoah-oah-oah
Listen listen listen.. 
Listen.. mmm-mmm-mmm

[Rell] + {Mary}
If you want to 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 packin' 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 goin' 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 goin' play it like you get it
I done been through all emotions, from in shock, to keepin' a poker face
To straight breakin' down and showin' all emotions

I'm anxious to believe in real G's don't cry
If that's the truth, then I'm realizin' I ain't no gangsta
It's just not me, but you know I'm a always ride wit you
I miss you, sometimes I wish I just died wit you

[Mary J. Blige]
Listen listen listen.. (listen) whoahh (listen)
Listen listen listen.. whoah-oah-oah
Listen listen listen.. {*harmonizing*}
Listen.. eyy-eyy-eyy-yeah-yeah

[Rell] + {Mary}
If you want to 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 worry}
I'm just hustlin everyday, runnin this race, makin this paper

[Mary J. Blige]
Yeah, yeah, ahhh-oooh-oahahahhhhh.. listen..

If you don't know why I.. you gotta listen up right now
Lis-ten, lis-ten, lis-ten, lis-ten..

Lis-ten, lis-ten

Lis-ten, children lis-ten
I'm tryin to tell you somethin good
Don't get caught up in the hood

If you don't know why..
You gotta find out the reason why..
Brother... brother...
