No capo. None of the other versions of the song sounded like the original so I 
thought I'd do my own tab, and this sounds very accurate, especially if you play 
along with the original song.
So it's basically these 4 chords played throughout the whole song, enjoy :)

G#  Fm    G    Cm


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

G#         Fm                     G             Cm
Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise
G#             Fm                     G             Cm

Look at the situation they got me facin'
         Gm                       Cm
I can't live a normal life, I was raised by the streets
      G#                   Fm
So I gotta be down with the hood team
          Gm                        Cm
Too much television watching got me chasing dreams
       G#                  Fm
I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
       Gm                   Cm
Got my 10 in my hand and a gleam in my eye
       G#                   Fm
I'm a loc'd out gangsta set trippin' banger
        Gm                     Cm
And my homies is down so don't arouse my anger, fool
G#                         Fm
Death ain't nothing but a heartbeat away,
    Gm                 Cm
I'm living life, do or die, what can I say
    G#                       Fm
I'm 23 now, but will I live to see 24
     Gm                   Cm
The way things are going I don't know
       G#       Fm     Gm      Cm
Tell me why are we so blind to see
        G#        Fm      Gm       Cm
That the ones we hurt are you and me


[Chorus]

Been spending most their lives, living in the gangsta's paradise

[Verse]

G#                   Fm
Power and the money, money and the power
Gm                   Cm
Minute after minute, hour after hour
G#                      Fm
Everybody's running, but half of them ain't looking
           Gm                         Cm
What's going on in the kitchen, but I don't know what's cookin'
     G#                           Fm
They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me
    Gm                         Cm
If they can't understand it, how can they reach me
   G#                  Fm
I guess they can't, I guess they won't
   Gm                                   Cm
I guess they front, that's why I know my life is out of luck, fool
