Saddest Rap Songs
The Top Ten
One of Eminem's best! And it's sad too. So much meaning here. This song deserves number1
The saddest song I, personally have ever heard. The character Stan in the song is an exellent reflection to tell us that we do some crazy things for celebrities.
best, crazy wordplay and narration, no more questions asked, enough said!
Brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. :(
This song always makes me upset every time I hear it but its a great song but its so sad my friend cried when he heard it and his mom wont let him here it any more I mean he's singing about what to do when he's dead how is that not sad
touching song about his family.
Vote it's better than hops in it needs to go up at least one if not more so much meaning
Every time I listen to this song I get tears in my eyes when Haley talks to him at the concert in Sweden. It's one of the most emotional songs from Eminem along with Mockingbird that really demonstrate his talent for writing touching lyrics and how much he loves his daughter.
Immortal has a storytelling ability that's better than anyone I've ever heard. His other song You Never Know is a great story that is just as sad. It should definitely be on this list instead of I Used to love HER
This song would be first if the sample used the end of the song. Mainstream listeners who haven't heard of IT probably don't see why it is on this list based on the sample this site gives.
The only reason this isn't number one is because a lot of people haven't heard it. I can almost guarantee everyone who has heard it, voted for it. I'll never forget the first time I heard this song, it affected me in a way that no song has ever before. You Never Know is another amazingly sad song by Immortal Technique which I would put at number 2.
So much better than eminem's stan and when Iam gone. People are so reatard dumbass
I relate to this song as do my parents. Separation, theft and loss, drugs, and an absent parent. It gives me solemn and comfort.
This song reminds me of my childhood in a way. My mom and dad broke up and she left and never came back. My dad did everything for us and yet, I stilled cryed at night for my mom. He would tell me Jimmy's gonna be alright. This song should be in the top ten
This Oscar just epic! The only rap smog that made me cry after difficult by em...
The best rap I have ever heard
I know the only reason this isn't number one is because most people haven't heard this. This song was never supposed to be released but was leaked. By far the saddest rap I've ever heard. Please listen to this if you haven't done so.
I listen to this every day. It has such a sad tone that you can tell Eminem is having lots of trouble actually saying the words, his voice is trembling in the whole song. It makes me realize how easy we receive life compared to others like Eminem that had to deal with his father leaving and never coming back when he wasn't even a year old, then Eminem dealing with a abusive mother that made him pay for the house bills even though she would kick him out the house, to being beat up by bullies and transporting schools who knows how many times, finally he had to deal with having his daughter Hailie by working extremely hard.
This song actually made my eyes water when I first heard it. One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists.
This is definitely the saddest song by Eminem if not any rapper. I'm a diehard Eminem fan and when I heard this song it blew my mind at the amount of emotion and love he puts in this song for his friend. RIP Proof
This song just makes me emotional. The hook speaks to me and probably many others with self confidence issues. It's an intriguing mix because the verses are so sad and the hook is so uplifting. The sampled bit to start and end the song are great as well as well as Em's quote at the end "god gave you them shoes to fit you, so put them on and wear them. Be yourself man, be proud of who you are. Even if it sounds corny don't let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful"
I just think this song really reflect on the people who get picked on at school because they are them self they don't care what everyone thinks.
This song is so good but so depressing
Not surprised an Eminem song is here, considering how amazing he is lyrically. But this should be number 1, it is the most emotional Eminem song. Then Dance with the Devil should be 2 because Immortal Technique is also very good.
R.I. P Proof and Bugz this should be at least in the top 10 I don't get why it only has 2 percent of people liking this
The good really do die young Pac, biggie, bugz and proof R.I. P
The best sad song ever! R.I.P.. :(
It's a really great song with in depth lyrics that allow you to see a different side of the members of D12.
A tribute to The Notorious BIG. The song is very emotional and the chorus made me cry.
How is this 61, this is extremely sad. Puffy mourning his best friend, and Faith Evans mourning her husband
It makes me cry every time and I don't even like biggie like that
This made me stop and think what all these rappers have been through, Eazy-E with the HIV-AIDS, Tupac and Biggie shot to death, it just hit me and all of these rappers I have much respect for.
I hate how this whole website of full of Eminem fans, it provides a very bias list.
Tupac is the inspiration of Eminem... Tupac was a legend and Eminem is the living legend
Best song ever... Touches your core
I love Tupac and this song is amazing
2Pac is the best rapper of all time
Many songs can touch your heart, but this song just grabs your heart and crushes it such a sad song. On my personal top ten ALL TIME
I cried when I first heard this track. Saddest song out of all of these.
Immortal technique in general touches the heart all his songs have strong meanings.
A story that has a realistic, sad and touching ending
I think if you are a true Eminem fan and you know his story there's no way this song wouldn't make you cry... He's been around for so long & in so many of his songs he's shared stories of his childhood and his life that for him to rap about forgiveness towards his mom it's so real and emotional... ONE of my favorite tracks ever... I tear up every time...
I wouldn't say that this song is a really sad song but more of a touching one because he forgives his mom for everything she ever put him through. I get goosebumps every time I hear it and if your a real Eminem fan you'll understand why.
I cried more listening to this song when I was 13 then I cried watching Titanic when I was 9. This is song is about how Eminem belies his mom is dying from because of the effects of Emienms lyrics to songs such as 'Cleanin out my closet'. To me this song is closely followed by Stan and Beautiful. If you listen to the lyrics closely in Beautiful you will realize it's very deep and very well written especially the Chorus.
Eminem forgave his mom after all she did to him to the lyrics are so good and sad
Just listen to it, it shows how hard it was for Eminem to make it as a rapper. He had such a hard life that is so unimaginable how much he had to go through. This song is the best on The Slim Shady LP and deserves to be higher.
Very emotional lyrics, the beat is really depressing.
One of the saddest songs. Truly makes me sad to imagine what emi went through in the early dayz of his career. Just listen to this and you'll realize how touching Eminem songs can be
Just listen to it and you'll get very depressed for a few minutes. (Or that's what I had)
Proof is such a underrated rapper. This whole album is dope and this song gets the eeriest things across about him
The deepest personal confession of the greatest man to never see his true potential.
One of the best rappers that's existed but because he's so underrated nobody listens to him anymore. This a amazing song written by him.
Such a great song. I tried to make at top ten proof song list and it still hasn't been published.
Glad it's in top ten:) Tupac is the best rapper of all time.
this song get me whenever I listened to it
Rest in peace 2pac
Tupac is the greatest until the end of time
And this song is the greatest until the end of time
I can't find this, does it exist?
Can't find it
Underrated... easily his best single. It's one of his realest songs he's ever released and so many people can relate to it
This ain’t sad though
Eminem explains his struggles while he was in rehab, doing drugs, and finally recovering. He shows the hard points of being that famous it is just amazing.
A really sad Eminem song about fame and drugs.
A song about loneliness, sadness, betrayal, and suicide.
A song about Eminem's struggle.. makes every true fan going through bad times.. cry
Amazing song, reaches deep into my soul every time I listen to it.
A song about his struggle as a kid to where he is now, sad song
Easily one of my favorite em songs, and it tells a story
This is a great song, buut I don't think it should be on top ten. Hopsin is a kind of new rapper who has great potential, but this song just doesn't cut it, there's plenty other sad rap songs that belong in this spot.
I've known this song for so long, dedicated to my relationship with this girl, which ended 11 months ago, listen to it and always think about her.
This is one of the best sad songs ever I wonder why it is not in the top 10
Old friend by hopsin is more real than any of these others. I don't even care much for rap but couldn't stop the leak before the end of the song
I cry when I hear the opening piano music. I just break down knowing that he's gone, and it really showed how good a guy Tupac was, and how much of a change he wanted to make. I listen to the song, and I wonder," Why Tupac, of all people, why was Tupac taken from us? " This song is really just his legacy.
Tupac talks of hope, in a tone of hopelessness. The juxtaposition of these two emotions makes for a beautiful song.
I cried when I first heard this song.
This deserves the top 10's. It is about what he has been through and he just wanted peace.
