"C U When U Get There" is a song by Coolio featuring 40 Thevz and based on the melody of Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major. It was released in 1997 as the first single from Coolio's album My Soul.

The song peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 7 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart in the US. It was an international success, reaching the top 10 in many countries throughout Europe. It samples Pachelbel's Canon extensively. The record has been certified gold by the RIAA.
