Do For Love (1997)
2Pac: California Love (feat. Dr. Dre)
California love!

California...knows how to party. California...knows how to party. In the citaaay of L.A.. In the citaaay of good ol' Watts. In the citaaay, 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. 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

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

Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it mama. Shake it Cali. Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it shake it shake it...

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. Only in Cali where we riot not rally to live and die. In L.A. we wearin Chucks not Ballies (that's right). 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 Sacktown. The Bay Area and back down. Cali is where they put they mack down. Give me love!

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

Dr. Dre: now make it shake...

Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it mama. Shake it Cali. Shake it shake it baby. Shake it shake it shake it shake it...
