Relationships have their ups and downs. Male rappers voice their opinions about their relationships through the good and the bad.
1. And I Know You Wouldn’t Leave
“I said, ‘Slavery a choice,’ they said, ‘How, Ye?’” This track is off of Ye’s 2018 album, and it might reveal some insight into the artist’s mental state at the time. Subsequently, emotional troubles led to relationship problems for Ye and his long-term partnership with Kim Kardashian.
2. When I’m with You, I Feel Alive
This is another song about a Kardashian-Jenner sister and her relationship with a famous rapper, her boo Travis Scott. “This not the Molly, this the boot!” As young parents, Scott’s lyrics elaborate on his experiences navigating new relationship pressures and expectations. The couple will be in each other’s lives forever now that Travis shares two children with Kylie.
3. Bring That Body to Me
Big Sean and Jhené Aiko illustrate what two poets dating is like. “Don’t just take your clothes off/Take the problems off/Take the armor off/Take all the drama off!” Vulnerability is what makes dating worth it. Healing can take place through connection and intimacy.
4. Shawty, She’s My Cup of Tea
A simple love song named for the topic of choice. India and Lil Durk have enjoyed a long-term relationship. Lyrics like, “I told my mom, you would make a hell of a wife” articulate how the rapper feels about his lady. Wifey material is fit for the best songs.
Which lyrics do you relate to the most? How would you want your significant other to talk the love talk to you?
