Easily the best Hip-Hop song ever produced. Unlike in a lot of music today, the Stevie Wonder sample (from Pastime Paradise) isn't a few bars superfluously borrowed because they are hip / popular. The artist merges the two messages, they become one and underscore each other in content and delivery. Surely there are more complex presentations, compilations and more shocking iterations of the same basic message but none are deeper or more heart bending than this haunting, direct and plainly worded song presented by Coolio, L.V. and Stevie Wonder.

Good Song I used to live in South Central Los Angeles, and Compton CA and I can identify with all The lyrics. This is a real life song that brings tears to my eyes when the vocalist L.V. sings the chorus, "Tell me why are we so blind to see that the ones we hurt, are you and me." I like the music video of this song much better. The music in this song seems surrealistic and touching.

Luv this song -- I don't generally like rap and Coolio. However, I heard this song several years ago on a music awards show (don't remember which one). The contrast of Coolio's voice and the other singer was quite striking & I've thought about this song repeatedly over the years. I finally decided to go ahead & buy the single MP3 onto my iPhone to have it available whenever I want to listen to it. I TRULY, TRULY ENJOY THIS SONG & BELIEVE OTHERS WILL AS WELL..........

What I love most about this song is that, not only does it have a nostalgic feeling (for me, at least), the beat is awesome. The lyrics are great, too, but the music itself is really what gets me. Great song.

The movie soundtrack version is more lush, I think -- as movie soundtracks tend to be. They're made for movie theater surround sound systems, etc.

Great song, though. Reminds me of teaching high school in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Good times, good times...
