[Warren G]
213 Childhood homies way back in the day since then it's been 213 the hard way Rapping on the street corners, young as can be
All the local groups called us Run-DMC
Me? Warren G, I was Jam Master Jay Mixed with my big brother Dr. Dre
Now I got shouts to say
We still want Eazy like bedstyle people, we want Biggie In memory of Tupac, Left Eye, Aaliyah Heaven sent, say hi to my mama when you see her
Rest in peace but let's take it back to the streets With so much drama in the LBC It's kind of hard being a G from 213 Times was hard for a superstar But don't nobody notice who you are
We worked hard and stayed true to the game
Kept faith, kept God and now you know our name

[Chorus - Nate Dogg]
A big shout out to all my family and friends When times got hard, you were still be there You give me inspiration like strength from the sun
Feel like destiny's son, yeah

[Snoop Dogg]
To be a rapper was my dream And have a lot of money and live like a king
To have a handful of rings And to make the kind of music that the whole world sings Battle rap was the thing And King Park was the spot where all the homeboys hang, bang
Just to go do our thang and form my gang
And took off white a white boy in a van to get our change And moms knew what time it was
And loved the way her baby boy came up, 'cause
It's before I was Snoop Dogg on TV I'm talking about when I was like a little bitty BG Nigga me and Warren Gizzy and Nate Dizzy and Fatey Baby
are talking about eighty-threezy, flip the clock up to '93
And watch me rock the clock nonstop constantly on MTV and BET whatever you want
Hit these niggaz with that motherfucking cheese (G-Funk)
Funk to shake ya trunk nigga from the bottom bunk
Now I'm moving on up, straight living it up
Well known in the zone and I'm still homegrown
Like Al be	 Sure, shit I'm on my own
But there's one thing I'm missing and that's family 'cause without y'all I don't know where I'd be


[Nate Dogg]
There's no way I can forget about you Support for me, your love for me
Your prayers for me when I'm in these streets
And there's no way I can forget to thank ya
For showing me the true meaning of unconditional love ooohhh When I be fucking up you always come with love
You say you've had enough I just want to thank ya
Yeah yeah yeah
I just want to give
