Who sings the song California Love

California love

CHORUS:
California knows how to party (2x)
In the citaaay of L.A.
In the citaaay of good ol 'Watts
In the citaay, the city of Compton
We keep it rockin (2x)

[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


-CHORUS-


[2Pac]
Out on bail fresh outta jail, California dreamin '
Soon as I step on the scene,
I'm hearin hoochies screamin
Fiendin for money and alcohol, the life of the Westside
Playa where cowards die, and it's on
Only in Cali where we riot
Now rally to live and die
In L.A. we wear Chucks, not Bellies
(Yeah, 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 their Mack down, give me love!


-CHORUS-


[2pac & Dr. Dre]
Long Beach in the house
Oaktown, Oakland definitely in the house
Frisco, Frisco
Hey, you know LA is up in this
Pasadena, where you at
Yeah, Inglewood, Inglewood always up to no good
Even Hollywood tryin to get a piece, baby
Sacramento, Sacramento where ya at?
Throw it up y'all, throw it up, throw it up, i can't see ya
Let's show these fools how we do this on that westside
Cause you and I know it's the best side

California love

CHORUS:
California knows how to party (2x)
In the city of Los Angeles
In the good old town of Watts
In the city of Compton
Let's keep it rocking

[Dr. Dre]
Let me welcome you all to the wild west
A state that is invulnerable
Like Elliot Ness (author of "The Untouchables")
The song hits your eardrum like a bullet your chest
Pack a condom for your cock in the city of sex
We're in the sunshine state with a great hemp beat
The state where you will never find an empty dance floor
And pimps are looking for money
Jaded, money-making whores serve addicts
I've been around for 10 years and write rap songs
Ever since girls had a Sassoon haircut
It's 1995 now and they're staring and looking at me
Diamonds glow like I've robbed Liberace
Everything is fine, from San Diego to the coast
Your city is the best when it brings money
Put up a finger if you feel the same way
Dr. Dre clears everything up for California


-CHORUS-


[2pac]
Straight out of jail on bail, California dream
As soon as I show up
I hear the girls scream
Addicted to money and alcohol, Westside life
Playa, this is where the cowards die and it goes off
Only here in Cali, where we instigate riots
Instead of just demonstrating for our rights
In L.A. we wear chucks, not crocodile leather shoes
(Yes that's true)
We wear black sunglasses and khaki clothes
And driving around is what we do
We hang around but be careful
We collide with other crews (gangs)
We are famous because we are in control of the world
Let them see that from Long Beach to Rosecrans
We dance like it's a ballad, it's the west side
So you know Death Row doesn't bend to anyone
Say what you want but give me Dre's bombshell beat
Let me serenade the streets of L.A.
From Oakland to Sacktown, to the coast and back
In Cali everyone plays the big man, show me your love!


-CHORUS-


[2pac & Dr. Dre]
Long Beach is on site
Oaktown, Oakland is definitely one of them
Frisco, Frisco (San Francisco)
Hey, you know L.A.'s going to be there
Pasadena, where are you
Yes, Inglewood always has bad plans
Even Hollywood wants a piece of the pie, baby
Sacramento, Sacramento, are you in?
Up with it, hands up, I can't see you
Come on, we'll show the pipes how the Westside does it
Because you and I know it's the best side
