Say what you will about hip-hop artists, say what you will about rappers, but whatever you say or think, you’re lying if you deny the reach that these artists have when they decide to head down the romantic path. Whether unexpected works of genius from some of rap’s toughest customers (think 50 Cent’s 21 Questions and T.I.’s Whatever You Like) or sultry sex jams from more expected sources (think Lil Wayne’s Lollipop and Dr. Dre’s and Nate Dogg’s Xplosive) hip-hop love ballads are often some of the most revered tracks in an artist’s canon.
