Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Tyga
California
The home of a king
The place for an angel
Flyer than doves

I just wanna bring the cali love back!
Sittin here thinkin when they put cali on
88 Cube & Dre; i wasnt even born
So i just wanna keep cali on
F*ck what happened to the cali love

Cigar smoke when the legends shoot videos
Snoop gettin old and Pac is really gone
So i just wanan keep cali on
F*ck what happened to the cali love

See artists hate lovin this young artist (ME!)
Critique all em
Ya'll aint nothing but cheap condoms
B*tch f*ck all ya'll those talking but are suportin
I hear ya sounds loud and clear your shit sound distorted
Im'a pope to get on it
Im the one next to best does it
Remove your earpluggin i never stutter
Unt-til now brother my city will now love me
If anyone be found clubbin thats time for those a hundred




Young money that big boy money its nuthin
To sit and watch the sony plasma when you on it (THATS ME!)
