10 Saddest Rap Songs
I really love rap music and hip hop. There are a lot of great artists out there that have some really awesome songs with hard beat and very strong lyrics. Rap music is not just about drugs, sexuality and money like many people think. These are so called rappers that make money just because they have videos that look like pornos and never write a single lyrics. No, rap music is not just about who is richer and who is better. True rap songs consist of great beat, very nice composition and lyrics to live along. True rap lyrics inspire you and make you think. Some are rebellious, some are biographical and some are about true life. But the real rap is good music and I want to present some fine rap songs in this article.
I want to share with you my collection of 10 saddest rap songs in the history of hip hop. Inspiring words, sad but true stories and great composition. No needs to show how much money they have and no need to hire a dozen of hot girls to shoot the video. Just true music and true words from honest artist. This list is made by me and it's just my opinion. It's not based on any official chart or anything like that. It's just a collection of great but sad hip hop songs that you will surely enjoy if you like goof music and great rap artists.
