California Love Lyrics - 2Pac

Review The Song (8)



(Feat. Dr. Dre)

California love!

[Chorus]
California...knows how to party
California...knows how to party
In the city of L.A.
In the city of good ol' Watts
In the city, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!

[Verse One: Dr. Dre]

Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild west
A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness
The track hits ya eardrum like a slug to ya chest
Pack a vest for your Jimmy in the city of sex
We in that sunshine state with a bomb ass hemp beat
the state where ya never find a dance floor empty
sponsored links
And pimps be on a mission for them greens,
lean mean money-makin-machines servin fiends
I been in the game for ten years makin rap tunes
ever since honeys was wearin sassoon
Now it's '95 and they clock me and watch me
Diamonds shinin', lookin' like I robbed Liberace
It's all good, from Diego to tha Bay
Your city is tha bomb if your city makin pay
Throw up a finger if ya feel the same way
Dre puttin it down for
Californ-i-a

[Chorus]
California (california)...knows how to party (knows how to party!)
California (west coast)...knows how to party (yes they do)(that's right)
In the city of L.A. (city of L.A.)
In the city of good ol' Watts (good ol' Watts)
In the city, the city of Compton (city of Compton)
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin! (come on, come on, come on...)

Shake it shake it baby
Shake it shake it, shake it baby
Shake it shake it mama
Shake it Cali
Shake it shake it baby (thats right, uh)
Shake it shake it baby baby, shake it shake it mama, shake it Cali...

[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Out on bail fresh outta jail, California dreamin
Soon as I stepped on the scene, I'm hearin hoochies screamin
Fiendin for money and alcohol
the life of a west side playa where cowards die
and its all war
Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die
In L.A. we wearin Chucks not Ballies (that's right, uh)
Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
Flossin but have caution we collide with other crews
Famous cause we program worldwide
Let'em recognize from Long Beach to Rosecrans
Bumpin and grindin like a slow jam, it's west side
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 Sactown
The Bay Area and back down
Cali is where they put they mack down
Cali-love

[Chorus]
California (california)...knows how to party
California...knows how to party (come on baby)
In the city (south-central) of L.A. (L.A.)
In the city of good ol' Watts (uh, that's right)
In the city, the city of Compton (yup, yup)
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin! (yeah, yeah now make it shake - c'mon)

Shake it shake it baby (uh)
Shake it shake it, shake it baby (ahh, yeah)
Shake it shake it mama (ahh)
Shake it Cali (shake it Cali)
Shake it shake it baby (shake it Cali)
Shake it shake it, shake it shake it mama (west-coast), shake it Cali... (ooooooooheeooheo!)

[Outro: Dre, 2Pac]

Uh, yeah, uh, longbeach in tha house, uh yeah
Oaktown, Oakland definately in tha house - hahaha
Frisko, Frisko
[Tupac] hey, you know LA is up in this
Pasadena, where you at
Yeah, Ingelwood, Ingelwood always up to no good
(Tupac) Even Hollywood tryin to get a piece baby
Sacramento, sacramento where ya at? Uhh, yeah

Throw it up y'all, throw it up, Throw it up (I can't see ya!)
California Love!
Let's show these fools how we do this on that west side
Cause you and I know it's tha best side

Yeah, that's riight
West coast, west coast
Uh, California Love
California Love
Yeahhh.

[Chorus]
California (california)...knows how to party (knows how to party)(yeah)
California (california)...knows how to party (knows how to party)
In the city of L.A. (South Central, uh)
In the city of good ol' Watts
In the city, the city of Compton (in the city of Compton)
We keep it rockin! We keep it rockin!

Just c'mon, shake, shake it baby baby baby
Shake it mama shake it mama shake it mama, sha-e-maooeeooohoaeeaa cali-aaee-aaee-eeeeeooo oo uhooh rictor scale -
Talkin' 'bout our earthquake on the rictor scale
Mamamamamamaoooeemooeoeoaaooo City of Compton-eeon

I love the old Black People music and movies. This is for all movies shot in California in the late 80's and 90's for ever California. Now California has changed the rules and regulations. Come on California. Have a standard. Right on Cali
