"Westside Story" is a single released by The Game from his album, The Documentary. It features 50 Cent. The song is The Game's debut release in the U.S. and peaked at #93 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. It was an airplay-only release, and thus no music video for the song was made. Rolling Stone's review of the album described this song as "a kind of L.A. version of "In da Club". The Game has stated that this song is a tribute to Tupac Shakur, with a direct reference to him, saying "I got California love fuckin bitches to that Pac shit." The Game also makes references to Tupac's songs, California Love and Against All Odds. Other references include: Nate Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound (D.P.G.) and their song New York, Westside Connection, Michael Jackson and his album Thriller, DJ Pooh , Kool G Rap Tiny Zeus Lister as Debo. 50 Cent was only singing the hook. There is a remix featuring Snoop Dogg singing the hook and a version with both Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent on it.
