Video: The Game - It's Okay (One Blood)

One of my favorite singles at the moment. The rastafarian in the video is Junior Reid--author of the original "One Blood"--whose voice was sampled here. I would have loved to see the "chronic smoke clears, all you see is one blood" line dramatized in slow motion, but it's all good.

Apparently, the names have been changed to protect the innocent:

Old: I ain't got beef with 50, no beef with Jay/What's beef when you gettin' head in the '63
New: You gotta beef with me if you beefin' with Dre/What's beef? Us low-ridin' in the '63

Old: What would the motherf****n west coast be without one crip and...(one blood)
New: You kill me, what would the west coast be without Snoop and...(one blood)

Old: And I ain't gotta make shit for the club, what DJ gon' turn down a .38 [slug]
New: And I ain't gotta make hits for the club; what DJ gon' turn down some groupie luv

Old: Turn on the TV and all you see is the "A"/You niggas better make up a dance if you tryin' to get radio play
New: Turn on the TV and all you see is the "A"/You better do like they do if you need radio play

And here's JT denying the thin-veiled insults on "One Blood":
"I'll say it again...I'm not dissin' the "A" -- The Game
