Don’t get it twisted, rappers know how to love, especially when it comes to their mothers. The phrase I’ll always love my mama, resonates with many of hip-hop’s finest. They can be extra affectionate when it pertains to the women that birthed them and their loved ones.
Rappers have given credit to the superwomen in their lives for being caregivers and bill-payers, as well as for nurturing and inspiring them. Throughout their careers, artists from Kanye West to Drake to Jay-Z to Lil B have rapped about the values their mothers have instilled in them and how those values have helped them become the bosses they are today.
Rap stars have created loving mother-themed songs showing the appreciation they have for the most important women in their lives. 2 Chainz, Ghostface Killah, Rick Ross, YG and so many other rappers have shown gratitude for the life lessons and the tough love they’ve received from their mothers with heartfelt songs.
