Coolio – Gangsta’s Paradise (feat. L.V.) [Official Music Video]


You wanna tell me what this is all about? As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I take a look at my life and realize there’s nothin’ left ‘Cause I been blasting and laughing so long that even my mama thinks that my mind is gone But I ain’t never crossed a man that didn’t deserve it Me be treated like a punk, you know that’s unheard of You better watch out your talkin’ and where your walkin’ Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc As they croak, 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 street light Been spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Been spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Look at the situation they got me facin’ I can’t never have a normal life, I was raised by the street 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 ten 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 heart beat away I’m livin’ life do or die, what can I say? I’m 23 now but will I live to see 24? The way things is goin’
I don’t know Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? Been spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise We’ve been spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
Livin’ in a 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 livin’ What’s going on in the kitchen
but I don’t know what’s cooking They say I gotta learn
but no one’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 how I know my life is outta luck, fool We’ve been spending most our lives
livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise We’ve been spending most our lives
livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Keep spending most our lives
livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? Tell me why are we so blind to see That the ones we hurt are you and me? [Choir harmonizes]

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
    I take a look at my life and realize there's not much left
    'Coz I've been blastin' and laughin' so long, that
    Even my mama thinks that my mind is gone
    But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
    Me be treated like a punk you know that's unheard of
    You better watch how you're talkin', and where you're walkin'
    Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
    I really hate to trip but I gotta, loc
    As I grow 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, sayin' prayers in the streetlight

    Been spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Been spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise

    They got the situation, they got me facin'
    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 watchin' got me chasin' dreams
    I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
    Got my 10 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 nothin' but a heartbeat away
    I'm livin' 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 spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Been spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise

    Power and the money, money and the power
    Minute after minute, hour after hour
    Everybody's runnin', but half of them ain't lookin'
    What's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
    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 spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Been spendin' most their lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' in the gangsta's paradise
    Keep spendin' most our lives,
    livin' 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

  4. Sadly Rap have become so degenerate nowadays that watching rap video is close to watching porn
    I remember seeing this clip on video tape during the 90,s when i was a teenager

  5. sheeit they got the chessboard linoleum . gotta be DOWN with the hood team. too much television watchin' got me chasing dreams. if they can't understand it, how can they teach me? they're not really fronting, guy, I think. The world isn't as we imagined it.

  6. dose anyone else thinks's that the guy from 2:19 looks like the same guy from the one vine that said "These biscuits DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA" or just me?

  7. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND APPRECIATE THE SONG. STOP EXPRESSING HATE SO DAMN MUCH! THIS SONG IS AWESOME AND YOU ARE BRINGIN THE MOOD DOWN. 🙂

  8. Only Minecraft fans understand:

    Me:(・–・;)ゞand the redstone should work my self bulding door is ready
    My friend after it works :my Lord
    Me:*been spending most of life in the REDSTONE Paradies*

  9. this song has a good message in it and the message is this if you don't want to have a messed up life don't get involved with gangs and stay in school

  10. Wow that's deep "… I'm 23 now will I live to see 24. The way things are going I don't know." I heard this back in the mid 90s and I was 25 then…this is real life folks… I walked the walked… most of us Generation X did.
