Most rappers can’t read, and if they could, they’d know “freedom of expression” doesn’t mean “say whatever you want without consequences.” Yes, we’re ALL guaranteed freedom of speech but rappers should know they’re God-like role models held to a different standard.
Here are the ten most offensive, shocking or controversial Rap lyrics ever. Take a look.
“I’m ’bout to dust some cops off/cop killer, better you than me/cop killer, fawk police brutality” – Ice-T, “Cop Killer”
Ice-T was the scariest Black man in America from ’91-’93. Hip-Hop’s Chris Dorner.
“A young n*gga on the warpath/And when I’m finished, it’s gonna be a bloodbath/Of cops, dying in L.A.” – Ice Cube, “Fawk The Police”
Before Cube was a warm and cuddly family movie star, he was a scowl-faced, silky jheri-swirled “menace to society.” N.W.A. the most important Rap group ever? No doubt.
“Put molly all in her champagne/She ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/She ain’t even know it” – Rick Ross, “U.O.E.N.O”
Ricky D-Cups feels like we’re putting words in his lie-filled mouth because he never actually said “r@pe” despite describing the act step-by-step.
“If you don’t judge my gold chains/I’ll forget the iron chains” – LL Cool J (while wearing a Confederate flag-patterned Kangol), “Accidental Racist”
Bonus: “RIP Robert E. Lee but I’ve gotta thank Abraham Lincoln for freeing me, know what I mean”
Months ago, we told LL to sit his old a$$ down somewhere and launch a flavored lip chap line but noooooo—NOPE—he refused. Now, we here.
“Bout to put rims on my skateboard wheels/Beat that p*ssy up like Emmett Till” – Lil’ Wayne, “Karate Chop (Remix)”
Only Weezy would rhyme a name tied to heartbreak and pain with “skateboard wheels.” He gotta go.
“And I know that the government administer AIDS/So I guess we just pray like the minister say” – Kanye West, “Heard ’Em Say”
The leather tutu-wearing father of Kimmie K’s baby (supposedly) never knows what he’s talmbout. Ever.
“Fawk the F.B.I. and fawk all the Army troops/Fighting for what, b*tch? Be your own man” – Soulja Boy, “Let’s Be Real”
Rock-damaged struggle rapper Soulja BOY tells real-life soldiers to be their own MAN. Woo, WEE.
“Fawk money/I don’t rap for dead presidents/I’d rather see the president dead/It’s never been said/But I set precedents and the standards” – Eminem, “We As Americans”
Let’s just say, these lyrics didn’t go over too well with the White House.
“I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullsh*t/Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets/How much money does it take to really make a full clip?/9/11, building 7, did they really pull it?” – “Words I Never Said,” Lupe Fiasco
The smart-dumb MC needs to be banned from all microphones and recording equipment forever. Enough is enough.
“Tire marks, tire marks, finish line with the fire marks/When the relay starts I’m a runaway slave…master” – Iggy Azalea, “D.R.U.G.S”
As long as she’s getting chopped down by Black men, has at least ONE Black friend and knows T.I. these types of “provocative” lyrics are cool, right? Never.
