We did one session and two days later, my Death Row chain came. He basically changed my life off of hearing about me in the streets. The next day, Suge sent a limousine to come pick me up from Kurupt’s house to ask me what my mama need, where I want to stay, what kind of car I want. After he got out, out of everyone that was “Death Row,” it was a chosen seven who had Death Row chains.
I’m looking like “What the f— we finna do with this onion?” She literally peels off the first layer of the onion and rolls up two onion joints. The first day we worked on her album, she told me to bring some weed. We smoking and she says, “That’s the purest way to smoke weed in a joint or blunt form.” I was like, I was like “Lefty, you trippin’.” I’m pulling out a blunt to roll up, and she pulls out an onion.
Your album is called “Problem Child.” Why’d they call you that on Death Row?
He is a general — anybody who can hang around him and soak up some of his game, that’s a blessing. By that second session, my No Limit chain came and I was back in the game with P. he was like “come to the studio, let’s work and vibe out.” I did 2 sessions with P. We still cool till this day. P found out I wasn’t signed to anybody.
It changed my life. Now, I look at it as nothing less than a blessing. I used to look at it as a gift and a curse, because when you on Death Row, you take on their enemies, but at the same time, the world knows your name. Yeah, me and Crooked I are the Last of the Mohicans, for sure. I love my journey on Death Row, it made me who I am today. It’s a historical label, one of the most successful and feared labels of all time.
She was going to put out her album within two months after she signed, so we had to hurry up and get it done. Suge asked her who she wanted to write with on her album, and she said me and Crooked I. People don't know about this — I’m giving you some exclusive sh–. It was hella dope that she threw me in there. When Left Eye finally came and signed to the label as Nina, it was time for her to do her album.
What’s it like being one of the few Death Row artists still working?
I played Travon Lane, the guy who was “responsible” for getting Tupac killed. Pac just loved his homeboys and reacted without thinking, simple as that. [Some have alleged that Lane’s chain being stolen eventually led to Tupac’s shooting.] But that role was another intricate piece to the whole Eastwood puzzle. I thank God I know Trayvon personally and had the stamp to play his role, because I got a chance to clear his name. He didn’t get Tupac killed. Yeah… somewhat. I actually cried when I got that role — it gave me new life because I saw a light in me with acting. Because it was reality, it was real.
Hailing from East Los Angeles and nicknamed “Mr. He later signed with Master P’s No Limit label. Black Bandana” to represent neutrality in the streets, Eastwood (along with Crooked I, now Kxng Crooked) is one of the few remaining active artists from Death Row Records, which was founded by Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, and The D.O.C.
How did you get signed?
With Death Row, what was it like seeing everyone be so…
I know it’s going to be a game changer for me. I think the name speaks for itself: I was young and wildin’, clubbing heavy, getting into it with n—as at the club. I called it the Problem Child because that’s what started me. It’s a body of work I believe in and gave it my all. Keeping a gun on me, catching stupid cases, running from the police and I’m on Death Row, so it was like “wtf are you doing?” I felt untouchable, but the judge got to me and I was touchable, so I slowed my ass down.
What was it like working with Left Eye before she passed?
We’re definitely pen pals though, I’mma write him ASAP. I’ve tried to go visit him, but they wouldn’t let me come for whatever reason. It’s been a minute, I wanna say two years. My girl been on my head to write him.
When’s the last time you talked to him?
Since then, Eastwood has taken his talents to the screen, co-starring in Tupac's "All Eyez On Me" biopic and appearing on USA’s "Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & the Notorious B.I.G." and FX's "Snowfall." Eastwood talks with Variety about Left Eye, Tupac and his career in the interview below.
West Coast rapper and actor Eastwood worked with Left Eye on her “Nina” solo project shortly before her death, and also worked with another icon who died far too young, Tupac.
Talk about co-starring in Tupac’s “All Eyez on Me.” First off, were you acting?
I met him at the Fox Hills Mall with my family a couple of times. After that, we did music. I was blessed to do a record with him.
 ” />
You were signed to Master P's No Limit Records too, right?
What was your relationship with Pac?
Negative?
What was the best moment you shared with her?
What was going through your head?
I was very hurt — more so for her, her grind and her family. That was a big L for us. She put in so much work and deserved so much more life to live. But for me to be able to share the front page of the XXL Magazine with her and write her very last single before she passed, and to work on 99.5% of her album with her, and to see her in good spirits, and to soak up this game — I thank her. That was a blessing from her and a blessing from God.
I got kicked out the house I was staying in and moved with Kurupt. When Suge got out of jail, he wanted to revamp Death Row, call it the Second Dynasty. I was doing a lot of shows, working with [Snoop, the Outlawz, Kurupt, his little brother Rosco]. We was doing an interview at Power 106 and Suge actually had some folks meet us to let us know he wanted to holla and we ended up going back to the Death Row office.
Yes.
You know the song “Girl Talk” with TLC? This happened three days before she passed. If you go back and listen to it, you’ll hear me respond to her in the beginning of that verse. That was their last joint — I wrote her verse on there.
On April 25, 2002, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes — one-third of the hip-hop-soul girl group TLC — died in a car accident in Honduras at the age of 30.

Suge is a human being, just like you and I. I never got a chance to experience that, ‘cause the Suge I saw is like a big brother. He bleeds like we bleed. He f—ed up, and that’s why he’s in jail. He had his deficiencies but it was never to the point where I was slapped or bullied, or my checks didn’t come. I see him as a human being who made some mistakes, who’s paying for those mistakes. What a lot of people see in Suge, I didn’t see that.

[Intro]
Yeah, come on
[Chorus]
I ain’t tryin’ to hang with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (oh oh oh)
Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)

I ain’t tryin’ to hang with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (oh oh oh)
Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)

[Verse 1]
I know you too well
Check myself, I don’t need you
But it’s getting late, I’m awake, I might see you
I’m feeling myself, comfortable in my Adidas
I don’t blame myself, uh oh
This tequila got me feeling froggy, I might leap now
I just need a little TLC so I might creep now
Hold up let me catch myself this happens every week now
Somebody come take my phone
[Chorus]
I ain’t tryin’ to hang with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (oh oh oh)
Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)

Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (yeah yeah yeah)
[Verse 2]
We done this before, this back and forth is gettin’ old
I hope you understand the reason I can’t see you anymore
I got a life I gotta live, you got one too, it’s time to quit
I cannot fall back into my old ways
This is hard to hear, I know, we had our run but now it’s over
We were drunk off arguments and texts but now we’re fuckin’ sober
This is far from something healthy, I can help you if you help me
We just gotta go our separate ways
[Chorus]
I ain’t tryin’ to hang with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (oh oh oh)
Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (yeah yeah yeah)
I ain’t tryin’ to hang with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (oh oh oh)
Shit just ain’t the same with you (oh oh oh)
I can tell you dangerous (yeah yeah yeah)

Whose feelings that you’re hurtin’ and bruisin’? Be careful with me
Yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warnin’
Be careful with me
Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it
Be careful with me
[Bridge]
Care for me, care for me
Always said that you’d be there for me, there for me
Boy, you better treat me carefully, carefully, look
[Verse 2]
I was here before all of this
Guess you actin’ out now, you got an audience
Tell me where your mind is, drop a pin, what’s the coordinates? [Intro]
Yeah
Be careful, be careful, be careful with me
Yeah, look
[Verse 1]
I wanna get married, like the Currys, Steph and Ayesha shit
But we more like Belly; Tommy and Keisha shit
Gave you TLC, you wanna creep and shit
Poured out my whole heart to a piece of shit
Man, I thought you would’ve learned your lesson
‘Bout liking pictures, not returnin’ texts
I guess it’s fine, man, I get the message
You still stutter after certain questions
You keep in contact with certain exes
Do you, though
Trust me, nigga, it’s cool, though
Said that you was workin’, but you’re out here chasin’ culo
And putas, chillin’ poolside, livin’ two lives
I could’ve did what you did to me to you a few times
But if I did decide to slide, find a nigga
Fuck him, suck his dick, you would’ve been pissed
But that’s not my M.O., I’m not that type of bitch
And karma for you is gon’ be who you end up with
Don’t make me sick, nigga
[Chorus]
The only man, baby, I adore
I gave you everything, what’s mine is yours
I want you to live your life of course
But I hope you get what you dyin’ for
Be careful with me
Do you know what you doin’? Whose feelings that you’re hurtin’ and bruisin’? You gon’ gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’? I guess not though
It’s blatant disrespect, you nothin’ like the nigga I met
Talk to me crazy and you quick to forget
You even got me trippin’, you got me lookin’ in the mirror different
Thinkin’ I’m flawed because you inconsistent
Between a rock and a hard place, the mud and the dirt
It’s gon’ hurt me to hate you, but lovin’ you’s worse
It all stops so abrupt, we start switchin’ it up
Teach me to be like you so I can not give a fuck
Free to mess with someone else, I wish these feelings could melt
‘Cause you don’t care about a thing except your mothafuckin’ self
You make me sick, nigga
[Chorus]
The only man, baby, I adore
I gave you everything, what’s mine is yours
I want you to live your life of course
But I hope you get what you dyin’ for
Be careful with me
Do you know what you doin’? She don’t even know your middle name
Watch her, ’cause she might steal your chain
You don’t want someone who loves you instead? You gon’ gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’? You might have a fortune, but you lose me, you still gon’ be misfortunate, nigga
Tell me, this love’s got you this fucked up in the head
You want some random bitch up in your bed? Be careful with me
Yeah, it’s not a threat, it’s a warnin’
Be careful with me
Yeah, my heart is like a package with a fragile label on it
Be careful with me

You gon’ gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’? You gon’ gain the whole world
But is it worth the girl that you’re losin’? Whose feelings that you’re hurtin’ and bruisin’? [Intro]
Yeah
Be careful, be careful, be careful with me
Yeah, look

She slow, when you see me, see God
She hit my phone and say that she bored
I just want TLC like T-Boz
Get vacant like BLT’s on these boys
Extra lettuce, K-I-N-G no extra letters
But extra cheese, hold the bread, but don’t hold my bread
See I’m a vegan that went over your head
I split your onion for the guacamole
The beef get messy like the sloppy Jobie
Flip the broccoli just to cop a rollie
Full of [?] yeah cost me cabbage

One hour photo together, take a few flicks together, that’ll last forever
Whether, we do, you do? me too
See through it all, now creep with the Dogg
Don’t let the rain drops stop ya, I got ya
This is so evolutionary proper
Now what the future holds, no one knows
But the past is a blast, game overload
It’s like Good Times, my favorite episodes
I’m just the same OG, givin’ y’all a little TLC

[Verse: T-Boz]

Take a trip back to my hometown
Show you what’s going down, down
Boy you’ve got to mention
It’s not a simple one I know
Saw you in my mansion
Shot my heart and caught my soul
Floating up to somewhere
Wave goodbye to folks at home
Heaven is a place that only we know

[Bridge: Pell]
Your body is heaven on Earth
Your convo is mama’s dessert
Sweet and deserved
And we know relations take works
So roll up them sleeves, look at her
(Whop, skrr)

(I can’t bring this down)

[Single arriving soon]

Shake my head like this
You better stop it
Too high, too quick
You were the one
I never felt like this
If I’m being honest

I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Can’t bring this down)

Shake my head like this you better watch it
That ain’t all your lovin’, makin’ prophets
I’m a prophet, I’m just honest
Clean up nice, flies [?]
We take off like my conscious
So I don’t wanna bring this down, down
Don’t get scared when my friends are ’round
I need your TLC
Chasing down your waterfall
While you got both eyes left on me
I don’t mind if I OD ’cause you’re the only drug I need
And if I get too wise, probably where I need to be, please

Shake my head like this (like this)
You better stop it
Too high, too quick (too quick)
You were the one
I never felt like this
If I’m being honest (yep)

I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Can’t bring this down)

Shake my head like this
You make me spin around
Take a trip back to my hometown
Show you what’s going down, down
Boy you’ve got to mention
It’s not a simple one I know
Saw you in my mansion
Shot my heart and cut my soul
Floating off to someone
Wave good bye to folks at home
Heaven is a place that only we know

Your body is heaven on earth
Your convo is my [?] desert
Sweet and deserved
And we know relations take works
So brought up them sleeves, look at her
(Whop, skrr)

Shake my head like this (like this)
You better stop it
Too high, too quick (too quick)
You were the one
I never felt like this
If I’m being honest

I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Can’t bring this down)

I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I can’t bring this down
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(I can’t bring this down)

Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down

Any fuckin’ time call me baby
Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down
Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down

Come and lay it down
Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down
Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down

[Verse 1: Jacquees]
There’s a [?] over here
If you wasn’t tryin’ to get here
If you wanna be right here
I know he pay for your nails and your hair
He gon’ be mad I put tracks out ’round here
And we both want it back
And he don’t know a thing
And what love to the back
I miss that old thing
We can’t be wrong I love this feeling
I’m goin’ hard so spread ’em apart
Don’t give me your heart

[Pre-Hook]

Wanna lay ya down, wanna lay ya down

[Verse 2: Tank]
All I want you to do is
Open up so we can go there
Show you how I’ma use this
Have you screaming that its no fair
Have you breathing like there’s no air
Mouth to mouth is what you need
Give it to me like you don’t care

What you got between those knees
Foolin’ us will be tough
Nine months, I’m about it

[Verse 1: Remy Ma]
I like men at least 6 feet, faithful don’t cheat
So good he make me hate my ex men like Mystique
Good conversation, girl he so deep
Real intelligent when he talking I don’t speak
Gives me TLC and he don’t creep
My best friend I ain’t got a secret he won’t keep
Street credibility he an OG
Drive a fast V and he give me that slow D
Listens and attentive he know me
Doesn’t just tell me that he love me he show me
Makes me smile so much I’ma get crow’s feet
We see Broadway plays, we travel, we go eat
He full of surprises don’t peek
He wash my hair and blow dried it, low heat
I’m a boss, he a boss no rules, no meat
And even though it’s just two of us we roll deep

[Hook: Nathaniel]
This is power, this is pride
King and Queen, so divine
If love could kill it’ll be a homicide
No describing, this thing we got
Ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love
No, ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love

[Verse 2: Papoose]
I like girls with gold teeth, faithful don’t cheat
Let me handcuff her to the bed like police
Too real for twitter man she so street
Check her timeline, you won’t see no tweets
Ride or die chick, you don’t want no beef
Good sense of humor, she funny like Monique
She a neat freak, the crib be so neat
A night freak swear to God, I don’t get no sleep
Ahead cause we both getting bread, whole wheat
Disagree we gon’ patch it up, slowly
Watched Kevin Hart he had me so weak
Seen Cooley High we cried for Cochise
Eating mangos in the summer so sweet
We be riding on them jet skis, Jones beach
Strong like forty kings and queens we both be
Even though it’s just two of us we roll deep

[Hook: Nathaniel]
This is power, this is pride
King and Queen, so divine
If love could kill it’ll be a homicide
No describing, this thing we got
Ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love
No, ain’t nothing like black love
Ain’t nothing like black love

Ha ha ha
Come here

Wait, wait I know what I want for Christmas

And I want Left Eye to make me a, uh, make me a fly dress!
Well Merry Christmas from TLC

[Hook]
Let’s have a very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year (a happy new year)
Give with love and joy and happiness
And lots of good cheer
I want you to have
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year ( a happy new year)
Filled with love and joy and happiness
And lots of good cheers
Just hear those sleigh bells jing-a-ling
Ring-ting-ting-a-ling too
It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is fallin
And friends are calling you
It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

[Hook]

Uh-huh reindeer, presents, happiness (yeah right, check it out…)
Giddiup, giddiup, giddiup and away we go
In winter wonderland
Off we ride in the snow (ho ho ho)
With the Left everthing is grand
Sleigh ride if you like me baby
Don’t be scared
Take my hand
T to the Left Eye C if you can take a glide
Giddiup the guts and step on up
So we can sleigh ride
Cheeks so nice and rosey
Comfy cosey we’re in
We’re snuggled up together
Like two birds of a feather would be
So let’s take the road before us
Sing a chorus or two
C’mon it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Aaahh so let’s have a

[Hook]

Um jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid a… (yeah right)
Up, up and away
If we’re flyin in the sleigh
Home alone Christmas Eve
Make-believe it’s time to play
So let’s flow on this snow with a sack on my back
Cause Santa’s tryin to mack in his Cadillac
Ridin’ and a ridin’
But when it gets to decidin’
He’s a slippin’ and a slidin’ in his own sleigh ride
A merry little Christmas
Oh yeah, hey yeah
A merry little Christmas
Oohh oohh
Baby don’t you know I’m home
Don’t wanna spend the night alone
A very merry Christmas
Would ya wanna spend it with me
It’s somethin in the way I care
About the times that we have shared
It’s a very merry Christmas
Would ya wanna spend it with me

Chorus

Let’s have a very merry Christmas (ho ho ho)
