Les chansons de rappeurs en l’honneur de leur mère

28 Mai , 2017  

A l’occasion de la fête des mères, retrouvez les chansons de rappeurs en hommage à leur mère.

 

Nas – Dance

I dream of the day I can go back to when I was born
Laying in your arms, wishing you was here today, mom
Wish you’d appear, just for a second from Heaven
My tears would be gone, I wouldn’t be rapping this song

I pray when I marry, my wife’ll have one of your skills
But mom, you could never be replaced
I’d give my life up, just to see you one more day

I wish you were here, I miss you more each second I breathe
You resting in peace, forever I accepted you free

If only I could hear your voice and your laughter
Just one more time, my chest would be filled up with sunshine

 

Obie Trice – Don’t Come Down

Ms. Eleanor Trice I place no one above you
You the reason when I hustle, I knew to stack
The reason when I opened up mics I knew to rip

 

Evidence – I Still Love You

Too good for the earth
And when I say I love you now I just don’t know what it’s worth
If you ain’t here to hear it
Am I being selfish or being fearful
And some days don’t even know what I’m here for
Cause all my goals were based around you
Every dream a son dreams for his mom he wants to do
I keep telling myself you’re in such a better place
But I’m having a hard time not seeing face to face

 

2Pac – Dear Mama

And even as a crack fiend, mama
You always was a black queen, mama

There’s no way I can pay you back, but the plan
Is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

 

 

Kanye West – Hey Mama

I wanna scream so loud for you, cause I’m so proud of you

I wanna tell the whole world about a friend of mine
This little light of mine and I’m finna let it shine
I’m finna take yall back to them better times
I’m finna talk about my mama if yall don’t mind

I said mommy I’mma love you till you don’t hurt no more
And when I’m older, you ain’t gotta work no more
And I’mma get you that mansion that we couldn’t afford
See you’re, unbreakable, unmistakable
Highly capable, lady that’s makin loot
A livin legend too, just look at what heaven do
Send us an angel, and I thank you

 

Eminem – Headlights

Quelle surprise que cette chanson d’Eminem où, non seulement il parle en bien de sa mère, mais en plus s’excuse auprès d’elle de l’avoir blessée toutes ces années, notamment avec la chanson Cleaning Out My Closet. Le titre  »Headlights » veut dire « Phare (d’auto) » et d’après ce qu’il fait comprendre dans cette chanson, c’est la dernière chose qu’il a pu voir d’elle.

I’m mad I didn’t get the chance to thank you for being my mom and my dad
So mom, please accept this as a tribute I wrote this on the jet, I guess
I had to get this off my chest, I hope I get the chance to lay it ‘fore I’m dead

 

Akua Naru – Run Away

Un hommage poignant à sa mère qui ne l’a jamais abandonnée malgré toutes les embuches et problèmes de la vie.

 

Angel Haze – Black Dahlia

Angel Haze rédige une lettre pour sa mère au moment où celle ci avait avait son age. Elle raconte que malgré tout ce qu’elle a du subir à cause d’elle (c’est sa mère qui l’a fait rentrer dans la secte), elle aurait voulu l’aider et la guérir, et que si sa mère avait été mieux sans la mettre au monde, alors Angel n’aurait préféré pas naitre.

I don’t wanna spend the rest of my time on the run and-
So I’m just gonna confront it, yeah I’m just gonna confront it
And tell you that I love you for everything you made me
And that you need to hear this even if it makes you angry
God lives inside you, you’ve already found him
The Devil lives in memories and you just let him hound you

Traduction

 

Ace Hood – Mama

I just wanna thank you, ain’t no way I could repay you
Strongest woman that I know, you’ve been my motivator

 

Talib Kweli – Momma Can You Hear Me

She showed me how to shoot for the stars till i put a hole in the sky

 

Xzibit – Missin’ U

What I wouldn’t give for 1 more day wit you
One last embrace n face to face wit you

Yesterday was you fifty-ninth birthday
Time flew missing you in the worst way
I still feel the same pain since the first day
You left through death on God’s request

Your the source of my strength I was blessed with your gifts
Your insights, your wisdom, your penmanship

You made sure I got some love when there wasn’t none
Opened up my heart showed the world where I’m coming from
Your little grandson is just like your little boy
Mama what you built here no man can ever destroy

Feel me its all the pain I contain on the inside
You in the right place but left me at the wrong time
Use to cook, clean, and sing me to sleep
Now I only go to bed with my heat, damn I miss you

 

Reks – Cry Baby

I’m cool to walk in your light
Just help me find my way

 

Saigon – If My Mommy

It’s time for me to write some shit for my mommy
My mother, and not only to tell her I love her
But to show her how the pen can cause her kid to grow up

All I need is your love, your trust and just for you to stand by me

 

Bow Wow ft Amerie – To My Mama

When I had nightmares, you came right away
Read me bedtime stories and chased them away
My beautiful black queen, my everything
The one that keeps this heart pumpin everyday

 

The Last Emperor – Single Mother

I want to thank you for showing me
How to be a man and turn my pain into poetry

I wrote this in a single way
The only thing I can do is pray
That the radio will play it every single day

 

Game ft Shantelle – Love on Fire

Something happen to you, my whole fucking life is ruined
Let the Lord take me from my fucking mama , I’mma kill myself
Break in heaven then it’s goin’ be drama

 

 

Ghostface Killah ft Megan Rochell – Momma

I been sent by an angel to snatch you up
Take you way above the clouds and back you up

I’m not ashamed to support you
Floss you or gloss you out
Fat, skinny out of shape I’ll dior you out

 

Jay Rock – Love My Momma

Brought me in this world, first person I saw
After the doctors, the nurses wiped me off
Your touch so soft, I could feel the warmth of your heart through the cloth
Just like that we hit it off, love at first sight

 

Jae Millz – Mothers Day

Can’t a women alive ever take my mother place
It ain’t nothin i won’t do to put a smile on my mama’s face

 

Warren G – My Momma

Through the years comin up momma always provided
And when the times got rough momma always tried to hide it

 

Trick Trick & The Goon Sqwad – Love My Momma

Always made me get better whenever i was sick
And whenever i get hurt you would heal it with a kiss

 

Snoop Dogg – I Love My Momma

She the queen in my life, and I’mma make sure she gon’ shine again

 

Mac Miller – I’ll Be There

I just want to bring you out on stage to get a standing ovation
All the work you did to make my life feel like a vacation
If you have your moms, you better treat her right
Call her up, say “wassup” before you sleep tonight
Tell her you love her and thank her for what she did

 

Goodie Mob – Guess Who

The only one that cares for real and really understands how I feel
Help me over come my fears and never left me through the years
So I dedicate this song for you, for all that you brought me through
I know there will never be another that will love me like my Mother

 

Beanie Sigel ft Scarface – Mom Praying

Heaven sent us an angel and the world gon’ miss ya… (Scarface)

I’m in love with two women
The one that birth me
And the one that birth her

 

Tech N9ne – Mama Nem

If your mama gone, heavens where mum belongs
Or if your momma home, call ya momma phone
And say I love you momma and you are not alone
I just wanted to thank you and thats why I made this momma song

 

Canibus – I Honor U

And the reason people love they mother so much
Besides the fact she carried you for nine months, is trust
It’s a five letter word, that should only occur between him and her
Before the bees and the birds

When you cry, I hear, and I wish I could dry your tears
But I can’t cause I’m stuck in here
Five months from bein able to lay against your chest
I can’t even hold you in my arms, cause they ain’t developed yet
But I swear to you, as to God’s Almighty Truth
I’mma be there for you.. I’mma be there for you..

Flipsyde – Angel

The sun shines when I see a smile on ya face
My momma with the money and jewels the record and tours
I’d give it away if I could make your days happy days

Cuddle up inside your heavenly arms you help me weather the storm

The blood that I bleed it flows through your veins
Even in my lowest point I can still hear your words to my brain
First time I was arrested mommas love was tested
I couldn’t contest it so here’s my confession you’re my blessing
You’re the reason I believe you’re the reason I sing
You’re the reason angels tangle me in heavenly things
It’s been a long road so hard and cold
But you keepin’ me warm with your heart of gold

You’re the light at the end of the tunnel the break of the day
After the darkest night chasing all the evil away
You’re my flowers and sunshine cherries and red wine
Diamonds they can’t find shining through hard times
You’re the angel on Earth the proof there’s a God
The reason to keep on going you’re my light in the dark
The first star in the sky and the last to leave
And when I’m travelin’ through the night I feel your light on me

 

Rakaa – Upstairs

Je crois avoir lu que c’était en hommage à sa mère qui est coréenne. C’est trop personnel pour bien comprendre tout ce qu’il dit.
Il raconte en détails un jour où sa mère a été emmenée à l’hopital à cause d’une trop grande assimilation de drogue ou de boisson ou d’autres choses il ne le dit pas vraiment, peut-être même une tentative de suicide.

Whispered you were sorry, I found you that way
How far away the siren sounded that day
Violence in my chest, pulse banging in my ears
Percussion of the Calvary, running up the stairs
Confused you with every question
They looked at you with judgement, like maybe she learned her lesson
Then the oxygen mask, then the field testing
All of us were on our knees but I was praying for a blessing
They asked for your language and name
Then came the disrespect of your brain and your frame
Didn’t even try to hide contempt, with no concern
They snatched you off the carpet, then strapped you to the gurney
Scared, embarrassed, then mad
Please be careful, YO BE CAUTIOUS

Le titre de la chanson est en référence à l’endroit où ils l’ont trouvée, c’est à dire à l’étage d’en haut.

De ce que je crois comprendre aussi, sa mère lorsqu’elle était enfant a vécu la guerre et elle en est encore marquée.

Et il termine la chanson en lui disant qu’il l’aime et que malgré tout elle est une bénédiction et pas un fardeau.

Darkness to the dawn more chapters to the story
You’re a blessing, not a burden
I love you
Cause you’re a warrior

C’est une chanson très jolie où on ressent de l’émotion même si il le rap d’un ton monotone. Il n’y a pas de refrain, c’est juste un long couplet… C’est le genre de chanson pour laquelle j’arrête de respirer quand je l’écoute tellement elle parait fragile.

 

You’re a blessing, not a burden
I love you
Cause you’re a warrior

 

Z-Ro – Miss My Mama

Looked in the clouds, all I see was your pretty face
Heaven opened up, now my angel watching over

Give anything in this world to hug and kiss you momma
No more pain, no more drama
No more breathing machines and coughing all night
Just spread your wings high..fly

 

Rick Ross – Smile Mama, Smile

Makes me happy just to see a smile on her face
Perfect mother and I love you, tell you every day

 

EMC – You Let Me Grow

You was the sun on my cloudy day
And if you couldn’t be that, you would take them clouds away
