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]

  1. Great lyrics with no profanity nor nudity. I love this song. I remember being in my senior year in high school when this song was a hit.

  2. Listen to this over and over honey. Yes boo, I'm listening to this in 2019. Got a problem tell me now, PERIOD BOO!!!!!!!!!

  3. Who came here because they heard the song in Dr Phil's sneak peek episode on a teen who wants to be a gangster on Twitter so decided to ask someone what the background music was so they can search up the video and listen to the music while still looking at comments saying about the sonic movie completely forgetting this was the music in it meaning they got confused asf then remembered and am now here. If that's you, hello. If it isn't, hello.

  4. When you crack the pentagons wpa2 wifi and access all phone history and data files sent using the wifi, wait is that only me

  5. 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've been blastin' and laughin' so long
    That even my momma 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 talkin' and where you 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 that little homies wanna be like
    On my knees in the night, sayin' prayers in the street light
    Keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Look at the situation they got me facin'
    I can't live 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 a 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 nothin' 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 going 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
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We 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 lookin'
    It'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 spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    Been spending most their lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise
    We keep spending most our lives
    Livin' in a gangsta's paradise

    direction but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn’t something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn’t get in, and walk through it, step by step.

  7. How could I have made this video, including DDA Stephanie Carol Leonard? Do they think that I am white? my aka Darryl black as a Jack. She needs to get off of my back before big problems break out. I'm just being good all day long. My Muslim gf is long gone, she Rajaa Hastings and hubby are long gone, she may have killed hubby, not my problem, I got everything I was going for out of Ginni aka Rajaa already. His dead body they will never find, what of Jason their kid, rough life many of my friends lead. Life on Figueroa mountain all 250 acres of it is a hard life in the Santa Barbara headlands where on a good day you can see all the way to the ocean. And the money comes in buckets with the County Sheriff over 12 miles away. And practically your own road 12 miles long, that is a nice driveway. Plenty of places to land practically any air transport you can imagine in the dead of night, no wonder it did so much business. Skip old LAX, that is a place for beggars and not we elite..

  8. *Intro starts playing
    My Friends: As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…

    Me:..I take a look at my wife and realize she's very plain!
    My Friends:….
    Me:What?

  9. Wacho me acuerdo cuando iba a 1ero y escuchaba esta cancion, wacho como me encantaba cantarla y eso que no sabia muy bien Inglés xdd

  10. "Я не могу жить нормальной жизнью, меня так воспитало государство, я не знаю что меня ждёт впереди, сегодня мне 23, доживу ли я до 24? Я живу по принципу: сделай или умри. Что ещё тут скажешь? Большую часть жизни мы провели в гангстерском раю… Власть – это деньги, деньги – это власть, я образованный дурак, на уме – только бабло. Я не знаю что меня ждёт, не буди во мне ярость, дурак… смерть – это всего лишь навсего отсутствие сердцебиения. Посмотри на ситуацию, перед лицом которой меня поставили: я не могу жить нормальной жизнью, меня так воспитало государство, большую часть жизни мы провели в гангстерском раю…

    Скажи, почему мы настолько слепы: мы не видим, что причиняем боль только самим себе – ты и я"

    Текст и смысл этой песни отражает проблему расизма в Соединённых Штатах

  11. Трек на все века. И его текст ни когда не потеряет актуальность. Такая действительность. Песня 08.08.1995 г , а до сих пор, в мире, мало что изменилось 🌎
