Crips, Bloods, eses, Asians—everyone could agree that this was a smash. This song kicked off Game's major label debut album and was also the song that really got him buzzing on the mixtape circuit. The track featured a vicious piano line courtesy of the good Doc and 50 Cent on the chorus, but unlike Game's other 50-assisted hits (“How We Do” and “Hate It Or Love It”) "Westside Story" didn't have 50 stealing the show or even spitting any verses. This was rough, rugged, and raw West coast music for cats who don't do button-up shirts or drive Maybachs.
