This album was recorded in 2004 and got released in 2005, so Game’s lil' homie was shot in 1994
And years later Shady makes a song called “No Love”
I think what Game means is that he has a raw flow which flows like water. But Dr. Dre tried to make him solid (better) by freezing his flow into an ice cubes. Basically Dre tried to make Game be as good as Ice Cube. Ice Cube is widely regarded as one of the best rapper ever. He wrote for Dr. Dre during their N.W.A. days
This song was recorded in 2002 while Nas and Jay-Z were still going at each other. In early 2002 Irv Gotti, founder of Murder Inc. records, hinted that he will add Nas to his roster. That would have seen Nas' Ill Will imprint become part of Murder Inc..
I think the line that goes “bitch dog, Get at me dog, Rule nigga the boss” is aimed at DMX. Also known as The Dog, his first single was titled “Get at Me Dog”
Originally in the first and third verse DMX was supposed to diss Tupac for saying West Coast hip hop is better than East Coast, but instead dissed K-Solo. The third verse of this song was entirely from a diss of Tupac that he wrote in 1996, except Tupac is not mentioned in this song, as he disses K-Solo.
But he’s not going to take you there physically, only lyrically. The rest of the verse is a tale of what happens in Compton
Nas was acknowledging Jay wasn’t on his or B.I.G.’s level with these lines
Nas made a statement similar to this a year earlier on “Rich and black”
It could possibly be him
