I struggled to find a tab for this that actually sounded decent.
This is my first tab but i'd say it's pretty accurate.

For the intro I pick the top two strings (G & C) with the chords. 
But that's just a suggestion.

Cheers ~Sam

Intro: F Dm E7 Am

Verse:

F                         Dm
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
         E7                    Am
I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left
        F                      Dm
Cause I've been blasting and laughing so long,
       E7                       Am
That even my mama thinks that my mind is gone
             F                        Dm
But I ain't never crossed a man that didn't deserve it
    E7                                   Am
Me be treated like a punk you know that's unheard of
  F                             Dm
You better watch how you're talking and where you're walking
   E7                          Am
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
    F                     Dm
I really hate to trip but I gotta loc
        E7                      Am
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke, fool
F                      Dm
I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
      E7                      Am
On my knees in the night saying prayers in the streetlight

Chorus:

F             Dm                    E7            Am
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F             Dm                    E7             Am
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F             Dm                    E7             Am
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
F             Dm                    E7             Am
Keep spending most our lives, living in the gangsta's paradise

The chords are the same throughout, rinse and repear the above! ^

                         
Look at the situation they got me facin'
                          
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the streets
                         
So I gotta be down with the hood team
                                  
Too much television watching got me chasing dreams
       
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
       
Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
       
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
      
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger, 

Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away,
    
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
    
I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24
                       
The way things are going I don't know
             
Tell me why are we so blind to see
      
That the ones we hurt are you and me

Chorus: 

Verse:
Power and the money, money and the power

Minute after minute, hour after 

Everybody's running, but half of them ain't looking
           
What's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
   
They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
  
If they can't understand it, how can they reach me
   
I guess they can't, I guess they won't
 
I guess they front, that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool

Chorus: 


   
Tell me why are we so blind to see
  
That the ones we hurt are you and me
   
Tell me why are we so blind to see
  
That the ones we hurt are you and me
