5. “To Live and Die in L.A.” – Tupac
Sometimes the view from your sandbox isn’t always a glamorous one. The great Tupac Shakur was keen on getting that message across in one of his final singles, “To Live and Die in L.A.” Although Pac deems Los Angeles as the “city of danger,” he still recognizes it as the city of angels as well. Regardless of the circumstances, the chorus suggests that living out a full life in the sunny city is the place to be, and we’re sure a few natives will attest to that theory.
