“Maya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, turn one page and there’s my mommy.”
It’s not too late to pull something together for mom, today. In fact, with this list, it’ll truly be from the heart: yours and your favorite rapper’s.
Mothers are very important to the culture of Hip-Hop, and it’s not uncommon for a song to convey the thoughts and feelings one’s mother raised them with. Granted the current nature of our genre, everyone has “A Song For Mama.” For example, aside from the, now, traditional “Dear Mama” by Tupac, there are many, many more that give praise to the woman responsible for their successes.
The list presented by Mashable is amazingly diverse. It includes lyrics from Brand Nubian to Drake, to Ghostface Killah to Nas.
