2Pac - California Love

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
California Love! California knows how to party. California knows how to party. In the city of L.A. In the city of good, old Watts. In the city, the city of Compton. We keep it rocking.

Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild West. A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness. The track hits your eardrum like a slug to your chest. Pack a vest for your Jimmy in the city of sex.

We in that sunshine state where the bomb-ass hemp be. The state where you never find a dance floor empty. And pimps be on a mission for them greens. Lean, mean, money-making machines serving fiends. I been in the game for 10 years making rap tunes ever since honeys was wearing Sassoons.

Now it's '95, and they clock me and watch me. Diamonds shining, looking like I robbed Liberace. It's all good from Diego to the Bay. Your city is the bomb if your city making pay. Throw up a finger if you feel the same way. Dre putting it down for Californ-i-ay.

California knows how to party. In the city of L.A. In the city of good, old Watts. In the city, the city of Compton. We keep it rocking. Shake, shake it, baby. Shake, shake it.

Out on bail. Fresh out of jail. California dreaming. Soon as I step on the scene, I'm hearing hoochies screaming. Fiending for money and alcohol. The life of a Westside player where cowards die and the strong ball. Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die. In L.A. we wearing Chucks not Ballys. Yeah, that's right. Dressed in Locs and Khaki suits, and ride is what we do.

Flossing, but have caution. We collide with other crews. Famous because we throw grands worldwide. Let them recognize from Long Beach to Rosecrans. Bumping and grinding like a slow jam. It's Westside. So you know the Row won't bow down to no man. Say what you say, but give me that bomb beat from Dre. Let me serenade the streets of L.A. From Oakland to Sac-town. The Bay Area and back down.

Cali is where they put their mack down. Give me love! California knows how to party. In the city of L.A. In the city of good, old Watts. In the city, the city of Compton. We keep it rocking. Shake, shake it, baby. Shake, shake it.

Long Beach in the house! Oaktown. Oakland definitely in the house. Frisco. Frisco. And you know L.A. up in here. Pasadena, where you at? Yeah, Inglewood. Inglewood always up to no good. Even Hollywood trying to get a piece, baby. Sacramento. Sacramento where you at? Throw it up ya'll. Throw it up. Throw it up! I can't see you. Let's show these fools how we do it over on this West Side. 'Cause you and I know it's the best side. California love!
