Game came through, put the city on his back
I was in the city with a nigga, had seen that shit

from Game (Ft. Kendrick Lamar) – The City Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Game was the first artist of the “New west coast”. Bringing spotlight to his state in the early 2000s. Kendrick was a witness to it.

Kendrick speaks on this in the whole second verse of Black Boy Fly

Its 2004 and I’m hearing the people roar
For the name of The Game they line in front of the store
