Saddest Hip Hop Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 U - Kendrick Lamar

This song and suicidal thoughts should be on this list

This should be up there

See. This song off to pimp a butterfly is tight. It's a sad song. He litterly loses it In the second half of the song

42 Going Through Changes - Eminem
43 Hailie's Song - Eminem

Beautiful song

44 So Sick - Ne-Yo
45 Yesterday - Atmosphere

This should definitely be in the top 10. It's about him reminiscing and then regretting all the times he could've been hanging out with his dad, and he didn't. The song starts off with the narrator passing by someone on the street who looked like someone he knew and loved. As the song goes on, you learn more and more about this person, especially when he says that he'll endure all the criticisms if he could again, giving you somewhat "parent" vibe to the song, and then he says, "I know it wasn't you, cause you past away, dad."

46 Hope - Twista
47 Runaway - Kanye West

Most emotional song ever, I almost cried the first time listening to this. So sweet, gotta love KanYe.

Super sad song, it gives me the chills every time I listen to it

49 A Million Lives - Jake Miller

53 Right or Wrong - DMX
54 Marvin's Room - Drake

I cry every time I listen... Always think about my ex and it makes me sad

This one crushes me, The desperation gets me and the chorus is stunning

55 Keisha's Song (Her Pain) - Kendrick Lamar.

This song makes me cry. =.(

56 The Book of Soul - Ab-Soul

If you understand the meaning of this you'd put it up there

For context: this song is about Ab-Soul's girlfriend, Alori Joh, who committed suicide by jumping off of a radio tower. It's so heartfelt, and heartbreaking, and honestly this should be number 1. At least the top 5.

57 Revolutionary - Immortal Technique
58 Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre

This is not sad. Entertaining but not sad.

59 End of Days - Vinnie Paz
60 No Love - Eminem

All time favourite! This song has helped me through the worst. Helped me hold my head up and move on. It hits the heart. Shows feeling weve all felt. :')
