Now, obviously with only five slots I can't recognize every rap love song. I couldn't even list some of my favorites. For example, Will Smith's "Chasing Forever" and Nas' "Getting Married" are great songs that genuinely express what it means to love someone, but neither of those are on this list. And forget about it, Andre 3000 verse on "Int'l Players Anthem (I Choose You)" was superbly delivered; but everyone else verse on that song was about pimping so that doesn't exactly qualify for what I'm doing here. So, I've compiled a list of the best rap love songs.
5) Jay-Z ft. Beyonce "03 Bonnie And Clyde"
And I do anything necessary for her;
so don't let the necessary occur...yup!"
4) Busta Rhymes ft. Mariah Carey and Flipmode squad "I know what you want"
Sheddin' ya tears with me.
I ask you my mami,
Please continue to bear with me"
- Busta Rhymes
3) ja rule ft. lil mo and vita "Put it on me"
I'm outta control hold me, my love,
Cause I'm yours.
And I don't wanna do nothin to hurt my baby girl;
If this was our world, it'd be all yours."
- Ja Rule
2) Common "The Light"
and tune the fate of this union, to the right pitch.
I never call you my bitch or even my boo;
There's so much in a name and so much more in you."
1) Method man ft. mary j. Blige "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By"
You made a brother feel like he was somethin;
That's why I'm with you to this day boo no frontin."
- Method Man
