A l’occasion de la fête des pères, retour sur les plus belles chansons de rappeurs destinées à leur enfant. L’occasion de lacher un big up à tous les pères qui restent et qui placent leur enfant et leur couple au dessus de tout le reste, même si c’est difficile. Comme dirait Game: ‘Tout le monde peut être un papa, faut juste tirer son coup et partir, mais je suis un père et je serai tout ce dont il a besoin et encore plus.’

Brother Ali – Faheem

Album: The Undisputed Truth (2007)

Just know that it hurts me to death when I leave and go tourin’
I’m scared that it might make you feel unimportant
But our bonds so strong that the moment I get off
We seem to pick right back up where we left off
I tried to say I do it for you
But in my heart I know thats not entirely true
So if I ever come home and feel it hurt us as friends
Swear to God I’ll never tour again

I ain’t never met a child quite like you
Words don’t suffice for me to describe you
You have a genuine goodness inside you
I watch you and wonder if I was ever like you

You make me the definition of proud
Taught me what this life is really about

Reks – Isiah

Album: Grey Hairs (2008)

I look up to the heaven’s and I
Say somethin’ that’ll get me by
Isiah you gon’ always be held down
With this music that I write all night
For them streets that I ride through every
Night and day I stay on the grind
Cause shit’s hard, but I paved the way
My son will be alright and know that it’s okay

The Game – Life Father Like Son 2

I asked him what he want for his birthday, he said to spend some time
So we kick it, that’s my best friend, I don’t have to get married
He still my best man, and that’s forever
Anybody can be a daddy, just bust a nut and leave
But I’m a father, and I’ma be everything he need and more
