English lesson 1: The Game – Too Much feat. Nate Dogg

[The Game]

I’m from the old hood, somethin like yo’ hood
Where niggaz don’t know good, or know Suge, but the blow good
So we rock it like Tracy McGrady
Send it to Houston in a gray Mercedes
I’m a product of my environment, grew up in the 80’s
So that mean, me Kanyeezy and Jeezy all crack babies
And it’s evident my flow is heaven-sent
First LP, on the same shelf as the veterans
Nigga I can’t be fucked, like a lesbian
I’m to hip-hop what Cartoon is to Mexicans
I’m a artist, never claimed to be the hardest
Just number one since B.I.G. and ‘Pac departed
Nate ridin with me, Snoop ridin with me
All you other niggaz used to be good like Ken Griffey
I’m on fire like the tip of a blunt
On fire like a nigga that let it drip for a month
I’m a Blood, you can Crip if you want, just let it bump
like you got Scott Storch tied up in the trunk
I’m the ice cream truck man, guns in the trunk man
Drugs in the trunk man, call me the front man

[Chorus One: The Game]

Too much Cris’ in the club not to get drunk
Too many bitches in the world not to fuck
Too much chronic in the studio not to roll it up
And too much bass in the trunk, so let it bump

[Chorus Two: Nate Dogg]

You look like you mad as fuck, but who cares?
Grabbin her by the arm, cause she stare
Don’t know how much atten-tion you pay
You better be ready to die, in this game

[The Game]

I thought I told y’all
I’m done with the beef clown, my son three now
And I’ve been watchin Dre so long I’m makin beats now
Game on the rebound like Ben Wallace in the D-Town
I mean Chi-Town, fuck it it can go down
Nigga I spit the whole round, fo’ plus fo’-pound
Nigga this the wild wild West, call it a showdown
And I’m Billy the Kid ’til they split my wig
I come back from the dead, tell ’em kill me again
Put my head on the barrel, dare a nigga to shoot me
I’m gangsta, took more shots than Tookie
I’m alive, so I’ma take a Patron shot for Tookie
Roll a California blunt and keep watchin the movie
Inspired by this gangbangin shit since I was two
I brought the West coast back, what the fuck you do?
I’m the ice cream truck man, guns in the trunk man
Drugs in the trunk man, call me the front man

[Chorus One + Chorus Two]

[The Game]

Drive fast, both hands on the dash
Close both of your eyes and hope that you don’t crash
It’s lyrical homicide, both airbags out
Roll the fuckin windows down, let the bass out
Niggaz – drop the top on whatever in
Bitches – let your ponytail blow in the wind
Inhale the chronic, blow out dollar signs
Nigga you can drive a Bentley if only in your mind
Four doors, leather and wood
Ride like I got a horse stable under my hood
And I keep a chrome fo’-five under my hood
So if I die, nigga bury me under my hood
Who had the hottest bitch in the game, wearin they chain
Mr. H to the Izzo, Nas and Hurricane
Long as my family straight, read this at my wake
I gave ’em “The Documentary” and they scraped the plate
Twenty magazine covers, nigga look at his face
I can not, will not ever be replaced
I’m the ice cream truck man, guns in the trunk man
Drugs in the trunk man, call me the front man

[Chorus One + Chorus Two]

[Nate Dogg]

He wolfin a lot of shit, he look scared
You can’t find your girl, she right here
I’m not a bad dream, I’m a nightmare
‘Sides there’s way too many hoes in here

My thoughts on Language Study

I am a very avid language learner. In fact, for the last 2 years I cannot remember spending 2 days in the raw without touching any sort of language learning program. I have tried tons of language learning programs and I can say from personal experience that each and everyone of these programs were somehow beneficial and taught me something new. And in my book, that was the point of getting the program to start with, learning something new.  Well, I have to admit that not all of these programs where equal in their capacity of teaching and if I ever had to choose one and only program, it would be Pimsleur.  The Pimsleur came in very handy when I was trying to learn Spanish. Like everyone else, I had spent some time learning Spanish at school for about 4 years. And I have to be honest here and say that what I learned in school never came in useful when it came to speaking to Spanish nationals. I knew the grammar very well and my range of vocabulary in the language was very high (due mostly to its similarity to French), but speaking was as impossible a task as becoming a ski champion for a black man. Well, all that changed when I finally got my hand on the Pimsleur program last year, at about the same time as now. I went through the course in 3 weeks (supposed to be 12 weeks) and before I knew it, I could communicate in Spanish. I think what Pimsleur gave me was the confidence to actually use what I already knew, plus lots of useful vocabulary. But, I need to clarify again that I already knew at least 75% to 80% of the vocabulary needed to speak Spanish and my grammar and listening were already very good before I used the Pimsleur Program. So it would be hard for me to say for sure that it was all due to Pimsleur. And to clarify, I used Pimsleur for Japanese as well. It was very helpful and I can say lots of things in Japanese now, but I do not truly believe that I could hold a conversation as well as I do in Spanish.  What I personally believe is that Pimsleur is better suited to anyone who is already familiar with the language. The problem with most people who study languages (at colleges and universities) is that they focus more on the grammar and the vocabulary part of the language. Speaking and communication is in reality an after-thought. So if you think that you are one of those persons, (you know, the ones who always say: I can understand but I cannot speak), then you should definitely try Pimsleur. Because you already have what is needed to speak the language and Pimsleur is the KEY to bring it out. Well, that’s my thought on language learning today. Till next time
