Top Ten Best Rap Love Songs


The Top Ten

1 I'll Be There for You / You're All I Need to Get By

This song is one of my best the lyrics are tuff

Every rap and R&B collaboration released in the 1995 owes a royalty check to Method Man and Mary J Blige. The song reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group.

2 I Need Love - LL Cool J

Hip-hop's original loverboy made this classic back when lovey-dovey rap was deemed a novelty. Today, it's still one of the best hip-hop songs ever -- love or otherwise.

Hands down LL cOOL j rap song I need love is the best of all

3 The Light - Common

There's so much going on here: J. Dilla's steady drums, James Poyser's pristine keys, that indelible Bobby Caldwell sample. Oh, and we haven't even gotten to the rhymes. Common puts it down, matching Dilla's potent production with his own poetic bagel.

4 Bonita Applebum - A Tribe Called Quest

"Bonita Applebum" was the first single off Tribe's debut, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. Word has it the song was an ode to a high school shawty. Bonus points for safe sex: "I got crazy prophylactics."

5 You Got Me - The Roots

The Roots struck gold with this smooth gem off Things Fall Apart. Jill Scott wrote the R&B part but the label picked Erykah Badu to bring exposure to the record. With all respect to the wonderfully talented Scott, Badu made the suits seem like prophets.

Awesome song, really tells a story

6 Crazy in Love - Eminem

Seriously underrate song should at least come within his top 20

When you listen to this song you can really feel what his feeling. Eminem is the greatest.

7 Eye Know - De la Soul
8 Mahogany - Eric B & Rakim

You really have to see Rakim play this one live to fully understand why it's such a cult classic. Nothing like seeing hundreds of Rakim fans��"male and female��"stan over a romantic tune.

9 Space Bound - Eminem

Love Is Evil, Spell It Backwards - BeatlesFan1964

Don't knw about about rap love songs but this is a master piece and it should be at least in top 3

10 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Must be on 1 position

The Contenders

11 Teenage Love - Slick Rick

Golden words from the greatest storyteller in rap: "If it's not true love, you shouldn't deal wit it." The best part is that the message is always in season.

12 21 Questions - 50 Cent

Most love songs entail guys teasing girls with wild promises. 50 Cent turned the tables on "21 Questions," which takes the form of a relationship interview. "I'm asking questions to find out how you feel inside," he raps. Oh, and you can't question the genius of "I love you like a fat kid loves cake." After dropping that line, Fif went on to bag Vivica Fox, Ciara, and Chelsea Handler.

Thanks god I can feel it all happened in my life

13 Fack - Eminem

Eminem is such a hopeless romantic

I expected something like this to be here, but number 12? Wow

Lmfao who did this

This song is lovely... 😂

14 Brown Skin Lady - Black Star

Sometimes playful, sometimes treacly, "Brown Skin Lady" is always beautiful. Cocoa butter sales probably spiked after Kweli rapped, "Your skin is the inspiration for cocoa butter." Smooth

15 Stan - Eminem

Best eminem song in my opinion.

OH! This ain't no love song

16 Dear Mama - 2pac

Dear Mama is the epitome of a mother-son relationship in hip-hop. It radiates so much love and appreciation.

17 P**** Monster - Lil Wayne

How come does it penis monster, Lil Wayne sucks - awesomeboy123

18 When I'm Gone - Eminem
19 Kim - Eminem

The best kind of romance

I'm joking, of course.

20 Kiss Me Thru the Phone - Soulja Boy Tell'em
21 All About U - 2Pac
22 Me and My Bitch - The Notorious B.I.G
23 Take Care - Drake
24 25 to Life - Eminem
25 Out of My Head - Lupe Fiasco
26 '97 Bonnie & Clyde - Eminem
27 Just a Friend - Biz Markie

Funny but sad and also true

28 Come Close - Common

It's just a fly love song. Common spits game to his lady and vows to "do the best that I can do, cause I'm at my best when I'm with you." What girl doesn't want to be told, "I see the God in you"? The music video wasn't too shabby, either

29 Love. - Kendrick Lamar
