We exploit the youth, we tell them to join a gang
We tell them dope stories, introduce them to the game
Killer Mike is going after rap songs that glorify “the game” — in other words, drug dealing and other illegal activity. By thinking that this is cool, young kids will try to get into street gangs with a romanticized idea of what it is like from the music they listened to.
Mike is saying that this is just rappers exploiting kids for money by telling bullshit stories about how awesome being a criminal is. In this case, dope stories are literally dope stories.
