2Pac - To Live and Die in L.A.

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Somebody needs to do a song for L.A. -Straight up. Let's go out to L.A. The new anthem. No doubt. To live and die in L.A. Don't care what you say about Los Angeles. Still the only place for me. It never rains.

To live and die in L.A. where every day we try to fatten our pockets. Us niggas hustle for the cash, so it's hard to knock it. Everybody got they own thing, currency chasing. Worldwide through the hard times, worrying faces. Shed tears as we bury niggas close to heart. Who was a friend is now a ghost in the dark, cold hearted about it. Nigga got smoked by a fiend trying to floss on him. Blind to a broken man's dream, a hard lesson. Court cases keep me guessing. Plea bargain ain't an option now, so I'm stressing. Cost me more to be free than a life in the pen. Making money off of cuss words, writing again. Learn how to think ahead, so I fight with my pen. Late night down Sunset, liking the scene. What's the worst they could do to a nigga? Got me lost in hell. To live and die in L.A. on bail. My angel, sing.

To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see. To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see.

It's the City of Angels and constant danger. South Central L.A. can't get no stranger. Full of drama like a soap opera on the curb. Watching the ghetto bird helicopters I observe so many niggas getting three strikes. Tossed in jail. I swear the pen right across from hell. I can't cry because it's on now. I'm just a nigga on his own now. Living life thug style, so I can't smile. Writing to my peoples when they ask for pictures. Thinking Cali just fun and bitches. Better learn about the dress code, Bs and Cs. All them other niggas copycats. These is Gs. I love Cali like I love women because every nigga in L.A. got a little bit of thug in him. We might fight amongst each other, but I promise you this: We'll burn this bitch down. Get us pissed. To live and die in L.A.

To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see. To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see.

Because would it be L.A. without Mexicans? Black love, brown pride and the sets again. Pete Wilson trying to see us all broke. I'm on some bullshit out for everything they owe. Remember K-day? Weekends, Crenshaw, MLK? Automatics rang free. Niggas lost they way. Gang signs being shown. Nigga, love your hood! But recognize that it's all good. Where the weed at? Niggas getting shermed out. Snoop Dogg in this muthafucker permed out. M.O.B, Big Suge in the Lo-Lo, bounce and turn. Dogg Pound in the Lex with a ounce to burn. Got them Watts niggas with me, O.F.T.B. They got some hash. Took the stash. Left the rest for me. Neckbone, Tre, Herron, Big Buntry, too. Big Rock got knocked, but this one's for you. I hit the studio and drop a jewel hoping it pay. Getting high, watching time fly. To live and die in L.A.

To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see. To live and die in L.A., it's the place to be. You've got to be there to know it. Everybody want to see.

This go out for 92.3 and 106. All the radio stations that be bumping my shit. Making my shit sells katruple quitraple platinum. This go out to all the magazines that supported me. All the real motherfuckers. All the stores, the mom and pop spots. A&R people, all y'all motherfuckers. LA, California Love part motherfucking two without gay ass Dre.
