Best Hip Hop Love Songs
There are many sides of Hip Hop, and though the ‘sensitive’ side isn’t the first that might come to mind there are actually tons of songs that highlight the bond between man, woman and child……. Thought we’d share some of our favorite tracks that either united, celebrated, or questioned love throughout Hip Hop.
Of course we’d have to start with one of our favorite’s. The rest are in no particular order.
