I'm from the Southside where ain't no tellin' when I might die
I got a son he only 2 will I see 25?
I pray to God I ask him questions but get no reply
I count my blessings but I'm stressed with so much on my mind
-Saint 300, "Loyalty"
Here is a collection of Midwestern Sad Raps that I have been listening to a lot lately. I pretty much exclusively listen to this type of rap nowadays.
Listen as the chipmunk soul samples float interchangeably through each song with anonymous rapper after anonymous rapper struggling with the morality of selling drugs to survive in their environment over lo-fi production. The Midwest has carved its own unique subgenre of gangster rap music that uses The Jacka's "Never Blink" as its template: surpassing any type of glitz and bravado in order to revel in the internal struggle created by constantly being surrounded by drugs and violence.
Some of these are old songs, most of these are new songs, all of these are good songs.
