BallerAlert’s Today in Hip-Hop: 2Pac Released “California Love” 22 Years Ago-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 22 years ago today, 2Pac released his single “California Love" featuring Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ After being released from prison in 1995, the single was dubbed as 2Pac’s comeback. It was also his first single as a Death Row Records artist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ To this day, the song remains a classic and is a gangsta ode to the West Coast that both 2Pac and Dre loved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “California Love” was Pac's most successful single, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and remaining there for two weeks. The song even won Pac a posthumous Grammy Award for the Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group (with Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman).
