20 Hip Hop Songs About Heaven and Hell

When I was kid, after misbbehaving I would always ask: “Momma am I still gonna go to heaven?” The craziest thing is no matter what I did; my mom would always reply “Yes, son you are still going to go to heaven.” Only if life was that simple…

Since the beginning of time, poets have written about the subjects of heaven and hell. In the Nineties; rappers like the Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and BIG L were so fascinated with the after life that their songs actually came to life. In ‘Suicidal Thoughts” Biggie raps:

“When I die, fuck it I wanna go to hell
Cause I’m a piece of shit, it ain’t hard to fuckin’ tell
It don’t make sense, goin’ to heaven wit the goodie-goodies
Dressed in white, I like black Tims and black hoodies
God will probably have me on some real strict shit
No sleepin’ all day, no gettin my dick licked
Hangin’ with the goodie-goodies loungin’ in paradise
Fuck that shit, I wanna tote guns and shoot dice”

    Good piece. Don’t forget “Blasphemy” by ‘Pac (Makaveli, more specifically.)

    You are right Ron. Didn’t think about that one. Tupac has so many songs on those two subjects I could have easily made a list comprised of all his work…
