To live and die in LA
Spend a week on Venice beach
I'm 2Pac and Biggie Smalls

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Ab-Soul, Jay Rock & ScHoolboy Q) – The Recipe (Black Hippy Remix) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“To Live and Die in LA” (also known as California Love Pt. 2) is a song by 2Pac on his album The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory

“Spend a week in Venice Beach” is a reference to the song “Going Back to Cali” by Biggie Smalls where Biggie actually says
“…Spend about a week on Venice Beach sippin' Cristal..”

Ab-Soul recycles both of those lines and says he’s a mixture of 2Pac and Biggie Smalls.
