    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 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 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, 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

    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 watching got me chasing 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 nothing but a heartbeat away,
    I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
    I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24
    the way things are going I don't know

    [Chorus:]

    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
    spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
    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 kickin'
    they say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
    if they can't undersstand 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
    spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
    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

    I loved this song X-P, enzi hizo kichwa chepesi washika wimbo mradi uupende,
    bado i can still sing this song (for niliukalili wooote..), enzi hizo za Coolio cha ajabu sikumbuki...
    tena wimbo kama alikua nao mwingine... The thing nakumbuka ni rasta na kilemba alicho
    kua anapenda kutupia... He was one of the celeb post nilikua nayo not to forget Tupac Omar Shakhur...

    The bolded part is the part i love most when singingi (in my privacy of coz,,,)

    Bana alikufa, the nature of his attitude he would have sufficed...

    Kitu kinafanya watu wa question his death ni kua jamaa kila lilotokea aliimba
    and the songs were realeased kabla na bada ya kifo chake kama


    • Change

    • Death around the conner

    • Song to my unbourn child

    • Hail Mary (to mention but a few...)

    The greatest track he ever made. My favourate lines especially the one in red.

    Huu wimbo ni mkali sana...

    [Verse 1: Coolio]

    ....Now I've seen places and faces
    and things you ain't never thought about thinkin'
    if you ain't peeped then you must be drinkin'
    and smokin'
    pretending not to loc'in but you're broken
    let me get you open
    now little Timmy got his diploma and
    little Jimmy got life
    and Tamika round the corner just took her first hit off the pipe
    the other homie shot the other homie and ran off with his 20
    and when the other homies heard about it they thought that it was funny
    but who's the dummy, cause you just lost a hustler
    a down ass brother been replaced by a buster
    and though I got love for you, I know I can't trust you
    cause my crew is rollin' Hummers and your crew is rollin' dusters
    and just because of that you act like you don't like a brother no more
    I guess that's just the way it go
    I ain't tryin' to preach, I believe I can reach
    but your mind ain't prepared
    I'll see you when you get there

    [Chorus:]
    I'll see you when you get there
    if you ever get there
    see you when you get there

    I'll see you when you get there
    if you ever get there
    see you when you get there

    [Verse 2: Lek Ratt (of 40 Thevz)]
    More temptation than faith
    I guess we livin' for the day
    I seen a man get swept off his feet by a boy with an AK
    the situation so twisted everybody gettin lifted
    I'm just tryin to take care of my kids and handle my business
    cause it's way too serious so you gotta pay close attention
    so you don't get caught slippin' when they come and do all the gettin'
    life is a big game so you gotta play it with a big heart
    some of us gotta run a little faster cause we gotta later start
    but I'd be a fool to surrender when I know I can be a contender
    and if everybody's a sinner then everybody could ba a winner
    no matter you rag color deep down we all brothers
    and regardless of the time somebody up there still love us
    I'm gonna scuffle and struggle until I'm breathless and weak
    I just strived my whole life to make it to the mountain peak
    always keep reachin' be sure to grab hold of something
    I'll be there when you get there when you wit the sounds bumpin'

    [Chorus:]
    I'll see you when you get there
    if you ever get there
    see you when you get there

    I'll see you when you get there
    if you ever get there
    see you when you get there

    [Verse 3: PS (of 40 Thevz)]
    You need to loosen up
    and live a little
    and if you got kids let them know how you feel
    and for your own sake give a little
    oh, you don't want to hear that
    you busy tryin' to stack
    and keep up with the Jones' taking advantage of your own
    the realest homies that you've been knowin' for the longest
    but some ain't missing a good thing until it's gone
    could have built an empire if not for the jealousy that divides us
    we prefer to keep our eyes shut to describe when
    it's something wrong and we desire
    so hold your head up high if your poor and righteous
    I know time seems strife
    and the problems seem endless
    but at times of despair we gotta pull ourselves together
    and if you fell you're out the game then you need to get back in it
    cause' nothing worse than a quitter
    you gotta face responsibility one day, my brother
    so gather up your pitty and turn it to ambition
    and put your vehicle in drive and stop by my side

    [Chorus:]

    [Coolio]
    As we walk down the road of our destiny
    and the time comes to choose which it gonna be
    the wide and crooked, or the straight and narrow
    we got one voice to give and one life to live
    stand up for something or lie down in your game
    listen to the song that we sing
    it's up to you to make it be
    I guess I'll see you when you see me

    [chorus fade out]

    It happened either in 2005 or 2006 wakati akiwa Europe or something, nilisomaga online. Few years ago alishikwa na crack cocaine airport, hivi ile reality show yake iliishia wapi?
