There’s no crying hip-hop, or is there? Case in point, this past Tuesday (July 20th) Power 105.1’s radio morning show The Breakfast Club (w/ DJ Envy, Angela Yee & Charlamagne Tha god) featured guest Lil Mama, who broke into tears after being ridiculed over her looks, music, and actions. Although it was a bit harsh and touchy, she officially joins the ranks of MCs that let their tears, and emotions, do the talking. From Young Buck crying on a private phone call with 50 Cent to Big Sean shedding tears of joy at his New York City listening session, XXL looks back at some of hip-hop’s teary-eyed MCs.
