Rap Songs With the Best Lyrics


The Top TenXW

1Dear Mama - 2pac

I'm so glad that Tupac beat Eminem in a list for once, as he deserves to. It's not about rhymes, contrary to popular rap belief, but what the song makes you feel, the effect it has on you. Considering that, Dear Mama has to come out on top.

Not only the rap songs with best lyrics, is the best rap songin my opinion

The last two lines really kill the entire mood for me.
The entire song is emotional, honest and straight from the heart... but he couldn't possibly stop himself from ending this wonderful ballad about his daughter with a crude violence joke and a Beavis and Butt-Head laugh!?
I never got this. - Martin_Canine
