Lyrics:
[Verse 1: Coolio]
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
[Hook 1: LV]
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
[Verse 2: Coolio]
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 are 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, will I live to see 24?
The way things is going I don't know
[Hook 2: LV]
Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the ones we hurt are you and me?
[Hook 1]
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
[Verse 3: Coolio]
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!
[Hook 1]
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
[Hook 2]
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?

  • What do you think of your scientists and your governments now? They have made bald faced lies and then told you have to believe them. Then you said there was nothing greater in the universe than you. What gives? You have schizophrenia, or something? I mean you knew the truth to an extent and then you threw it away for lies as they told you it would make you rich, but it only made them rich and they will have to pay it all back. There are infinite amounts of time do so. As it says you can't expect to escape to Sheol as you will still pay your debts. They have all stolen and lied for there own good and so, they will be lied to and have everything taken from them so they will learn as you are all children. Obviously...

  • Actually good music its not pulled out of their ass its about story mostly anyway of his life

  • I've passively heard this song a few times before. However, after really paying attention and listening to the lyrics, this song is mesmorizing and sad at the same time. I really like it.

  • this song will never get old

  • Sering denger di tiktok

  • hala dinleyenler?

  • No one: L.V: *sweat intensifies*

  • I feel like this song might be easily misunderstood to be glorifying life as a gangster or "on the streets" when it seems to be more of a critique of the systems in place that seems to make that kind of life a necessity. Lines like "They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me. If they can't understand it, how can they reach me?" seem to point at people in power criticizing criminals and POC who live dangerous lives while simultaneously underfunding education and proper care for these communities, and a lack of understanding and empathy towards criminals and others who have been misguided their whole lives or essentially forced into the lifestyles they live because they were never given the opportunities privileged people have. "Tell me why are we so blind to see, That the ones we hurt are you and me?" seems to be a call for people in marginalized or poor areas to stop fighting between each other, when the real enemies are people in positions of power who try everything to keep poor communities divided and at each other's throats so they don't see the corruption going on behind the scenes. Whatever the original intentions and meanings, the song is a timeless masterpiece.

  • Song is so good that even tiktok/reels can’t ruin it

  • I love the screams
