The relationship between father and child is a unique and special one. Many hip hop artists have explored the dynamics of this bond through songs about their children, and even the unborn children they have yet to meet. It is always interesting to hear rappers speak out about such a personal and emotional matter like this one. Some shared their fears of fatherhood, while others chose to celebrate their joy. Either way, we thank them all for sharing such a special part of themselves through song.
From “Just The Two Of Us” to “Glory” and every sweet ode in between, check out 7 rap songs about fatherhood.
“Just The Two Of Us” by Will Smith
From the first time the doctor placed you in my arms/I knew I’d meet death before I’d let you meet harm/Although questions arose in my mind, would I be man enough?/Against wrong, choose right and be standin up…
“When she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off/Cause we think no one is good enough for our daughters…”
The most amazing feeling I feel/ Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real/ Baby, I paint the sky Blue/ My greatest creation was you…
Four ounce mini-me, I still can’t believe it/Nose,ears,eyes,chin,just like your daddy/I’d die before you grow up and be just like your daddy…
“And I’m sorry for not being there/Just know your daddy was a soldier/Me against the World…”
“I’ll never let my son have an ego, He’ll be nice to everyone, wherever we go…”
“I got my baby, baby, the only lady that I adore, Hailie…”
