When it comes to hip-hop, the people who bash this genre of music have claimed that it is lacking in content. Even so, this should not be taken to be true. There are hip-hop songs that will touch your soul. It is not easy to deal with all the things happening in the outside world all the time which is why you need music, and it can also help you work through different pains. This is why music is referred to as a universal language.
These songs should make it to your playlist if you appreciate good music. Start by listening to “Mocking Bird”-Eminem. Eminem addresses emotional issues in his songs most of the time. He is loved because of his talent in expressing feelings in a way that most people are not able to say out loud. “Mocking Bird” is not different at all and it is an apology to a daughter about the parents messing up. It is relatable to anyone who has let someone they care for down before.
Another song to add to the list is “I feel like dying”-Lil Wayne. One of the best rappers to walk the earth is Lil Wayne. You will enjoy listening to “I feel like dying.” If you have ever felt like the only thing happening in your life relates to drugs, extended stays and sadness then you will relate to this song. The song will pull you in and also make you feel lost simultaneously.
The other song to add to the list is “The Drugs Don’t Work”- The Verve. Even though you cannot say that it is a hip-hop song, you will end up falling in love with this song. The lyrics come from the experience of Richard Ashcroft who is also the lead singer, as his father was dying. While spending time at his father’s bedside, the lyrics were born. It was a time of great grief and you will experience this as you listen to the song.
It is not just the emotional side of your body that will be touched by the song but also your emotions. If you monitor your breathing and heartbeat while listening to this song you will see them slow down. It brings out great sadness on the part of the singer. Another song to listen to is “Gin and Juice”-Snoop Dogg. Even though this song does bring out feelings deep within you, they are not likely to be sad ones. It is the kind of a song you want to listen to while chilling with your favorite people.
It reminds you of the times when the biggest worry you had in your life is ensuring the house was clean before your folks got home from work and enjoying your life.
