Ten Unexpected Rap Love Songs

There's nothing better than a great love ballad to make you think of that special someone and smile.

Love songs are meant to be beautiful and heartfelt expressions to let that person know how you really feel. Rap songs are bit different because although they come from the same place of sincerity, they are delivered differently, especially if they're coming from some of the dope boys and toughest guys to ever get on a mike.

We're not talking the usual Drake and Kanye emo-rap that compels you to send out that drunk text, either. It's nice and awkwardly cute to know that some rappers who would normally scare the shit out of you have a little soft spot for someone out there. Here's a list of ten unexpected rap love songs.
