Saddest Rap Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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...

42 One Day - UGK
43 Kurt Kobain - Proof

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.

44 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.

How is this not higher up on the list..

45 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"

This song gave me the chills when I first heard it.

I love LP. Mike is amazing and this song is amazing

46 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

47 Sing for the Moment - Eminem
48 Kim - Eminem

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

It's more like a shocking song but I believe it's a sad song

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


49 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

This made my appreciate what my mom does for me - SoloPotato

This song that reminds me on sad times...

51 The Noose - Tech N9ne

How does tech not have at least 10 songs on this list do you people even listen to rap at all he raps some of the saddest stuff out there along with a slew of welcome to strange land songs a lot of his sadder kod songs should be on here

Good song sad though might be a song you don't wanna listen to bless

52 So Hard to Breathe - B.O.B
53 Hold Ya Head - The Notorious B.I.G. V 1 Comment
54 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

55 Wicked Games - The Weeknd
56 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.

57 Like Toy Soldiers - Eminem

This song is great, but is so much better once you know the whole story behind it (Google helps)

It's about how Bugz died because of rap beef, Em feels responsible. Fun fact: Proof portrays Bugz I'm the video, and is later killed

58 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.

59 Keisha's Song (Her Pain) - Kendrick Lamar
60 I'm Sorry - Joyner Lucas

Saddest song I've ever heard. It's about suicide. The first verse is him talking about his emotions and he kills himself. The second verse is his friend talking to him after he killed himself. - TylerCryer

Rarely ever cry but I was in tears after about a minute
