With Mother's Day right around the corner (this Sunday, in case you forgot), the XXL staff wants to make a special shout out to all the lovely mothers out there, and the mothers who birthed and raised the great team that provides you with all this up-to-the-minute hip-hop content. Since we're a hip-hop publication - and would be nothing without the hip-hop artists we know and love - we also want to show love to all the hip-hop moms out there who were responsible for bringing our favorite rappers to the world. To celebrate hip-hop moms, we reached out to some of our favorite rappers - including Chance the Rapper, French Montana, Riff Raff and more - and asked them what they were getting their moms for Mom's Day. Here's what they had to say.


Lil B


"A new house."

"I used to always write my mom some poetry and cut a card out, arts and crafts it up. This year I'm going to get my mom some flowers and some nice breakfast. Some caviar. And a kiss on the lips. I mean, that's my original girl."




"Some flowers and a quarter pound of the finest weed available. #wesmokeasone."

"Flowers with a nice aroma, and then something nice like manual labor. Whatever mom needs you to do - go to the store, get her something nice to wear, whatever man."




"My eyes blurry in the clear port/We making movies, nigga, grab a chair for it."

"I get my mother stuff all the time because I really, truly love her. But that day is definitely special so me and my sisters - I have seven sisters - are going to get together and get her a big gift."
