california love sample

The year is 1995, 2Pac was just released from prison and he’s already plotting his comeback into the limelight of the world of rap and hip-hop

His single “California Love” would the track that would not only propel him back into infamy but also catapult him to the levels of a timeless icon. ‘California Love’ was released on Death Row Records and was 2Pac’s debut on the label. 

The song features some of Dr. Dre’s most recognizable samples in his history of producing records. But there are a ton of misconceptions about the samples being used, the artists involved in the production, and what went into making the record in the first place. 

So let’s set the record straight and dive into that ageless California Love sample that millennials simply can’t stop listening to, even decades after its original release.
