This Sunday is Mother's Day. (Yes, we're sure. Yes, there's still time to get her something.) And what better way to thank the person who brought you into this world than with the gift of music? Few genres have dedicated as many songs to the importance of mothers and mother-figures as hip-hop, but in a cruel bit of the universe's irony, it's often the mothers of the world detesting hip-hop that makes the counter-culture seem so cool. In the name of fairness and compromise, we now present a Hip-Hop Mother's Day playlist that you can even play around Mom! (No, there's no Eminem.)
Would you believe they actually wrote an endearing song about mom?
