The Contenders: Page 3

41 Time After Time - Kid Ink

Listen to this it makes me think about my ex

42 Soundtrack 2 My Life - Kid Cudi Soundtrack 2 My Life - Kid Cudi
43 Slippin' - DMX Slippin' - DMX
44 Hands Held High - Linkin Park Hands Held High - Linkin Park

Oh how I love mike... He's a very good rapper but when it comes to rapping about wars, he's exceptional... "kenji" is kind of better... But this too is great!

It is the World's best sad rap Song performed by world's best band "Linkin Park"

One of the saddest, longest and meaningful rap song. Accept Lnkin Park, there's no band that can rap like Mike Shinoda

45 Ill Mind of Hopsin 6 - Hopsin

More sad than Heather Nicole, I think this deserves to be in the top 10

The saddest thing about this song is that many people posted it on YouTube with pictures of their dead loved ones and family members ):

Lyrics are very deep and intense about a best friend addicted to drugs and how he deals with his life truly hop should be in top 10.

He lost his best friend and decided to make a song about it. Makes me cry whenever he gets into the pre hook

46 If I Had - Eminem If I Had - Eminem

It is nice... sad... at all if you listen to it with high volume it will make you berserk... love it...

47 Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst - Kendrick Lamar Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst - Kendrick Lamar

One of the saddest most descriptive songs of all time, best rap song in a while in my opinion

Really had me to tears the first time I heard it, Kendrick's past is just too sad.

By far one of the most saddest, descriptive, and deep rap songs EVER.

Just listen to all 12 minutes of it and you will cry

51 Kim - Eminem Kim - Eminem

It may seem like an anger song but I believe it's a sad song

Very shocking song loved it pure horrorcore rap mixed with emotion and anger

52 Otherside - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Otherside - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

So sad that Macklemore is known for his overplayed radio hits rather than songs like Otherside. Definitely one of my favorite songs by him.

This song plays a sad story that many people go thorough, beautiful song.

53 Dear Mama - 2pac Dear Mama - 2pac

What? it's the greatest rap song of all time by the greatest rapper of all time.. I like Eminem but there's a lot of his young fans in this website, even they voted for him for the best rapper now he's the 1st and he's above 2Pac. Eminem knows that Pac is the greatest and he said it before that's why I got much love for him.

2Pac's tribute to his mama really makes me feel emotional. Great song with powerful lyrics

Yeah look on every other list eminem will be second or third

Should be #1 saddest this song made me cry

54 So Hard to Breathe - B.o.B So Hard to Breathe - B.o.B
55 Wicked Games - The Weeknd Wicked Games - The Weeknd
56 One Life - The Last Emperor ft. Too Poetic & Esthero

This is the saddest song ever in my opinion. The first verse is great, but not sad really, but it's the second verse that really gets you. Too Poetic is rapping about his struggle with cancer, and it's hard to listen to. It's the most haunting verse ever written in my opinion.

57 Happy Birthday - Flipsyde Happy Birthday - Flipsyde

This song that reminds me on sad times...

58 Lams - Bahram Lams - Bahram V 1 Comment
59 Kenji - Fort Minor Kenji - Fort Minor

Mike is so good at rapping about wars... This song should have been a single. I almost cried when I first heard this song, and was in thoughts for like 10 minutes... Even now this song touches my heart. And obviously, this song never goes boring. Perfect song for a list like this

This song gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. It can truly make you cry; can make you think. While listening you can just easily picture it out.

60 Life Goes On - 2Pac Life Goes On - 2Pac

This song should be number 1. It's all about one of the friends that you grew up with and are really close to, it makes you imagine them dying. It makes you think of all the good times you had together, getting drunk, high, laughing, chilling and then think about them or yourself dying.

This song is amazing. It's hard for me to hold back tears when I listen to it. This is the first Tupac song I ever heard and I've been hooked on his music ever since.

Singing about the death of his homies and his own death. Tupac sang one of the greatest rap songs in the history of rap and the saddest/ most emotional

How is this not in the top ten? This is the saddest sing I've ever heard
