Lyric:

As I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I take a look at my life
and realise there's nuthin' left
Coz I've been blasting and laughing
so long, that, even my mama think
that my mind is gone
But I ain't never cross the man
that didn't deserve it, me be treated
like a punk you know that's unheard of
You better watch how you're talking,
and where you're walking, or you
and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc
As they croke I see myself in the pistol smoke,
fool
I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
On my knees in the night,
saying prayers in the streetlight
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
The getto situation, they got me facing
I can't live a normal life,
I was raised by the stripes
So I gotta be down with the hood team
Too much television watching
got me chasing dreams
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my tin in my hand and a gleam in my eye
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
and my homies is down
so don't arouse my anger, fool
Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
I'm twenty-three now, but will
I live to see twenty-four
The way things are going I don't know
Tell me why are we, so blind to see
That the one's we hurt, are you and me
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Power and the money, money and the power
Minute after minute, hour after hour
Everybody's running, but half of them
ain't looking what's going on in the kitchen
but I don't know what's clickin'
They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here
to teach me, if they can't understand it,
how can they reach me
I guess they can't, I guess they won't
I guess they front, that's why I know my life
is out of luck, fool
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Been spending most their lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Keep spending most our lives,
Living in the gangsta's paradise
Tell me why are we, so blind to see
That the one's we hurt, are you and me
Tell me why are we, so blind to see
That the one's we hurt, are you and me
