Rap Songs To Play At Your Wedding – Congratulations, Pierzy

Love is in the air. Can you feel it? Yeah, I know we’re supposed to be hip-hop 100% and, for the most part, our music isn’t very loving. Still, no matter how much of a thug you think you are, nobody is beyond love. Y’all can front if you want, but there is at least one girl out there that got your heart and made you do things you never thought you would. This is why I want to dedicate today’s blog to the homie and regular commenter Pierzy, because he found love and tomorrow he’s getting married.

Applaud that man, that’s a major step.

Now, like many of you, I’ve never met Pierzy, I just know him from the XXLMag.com comment section and now Twitter. But still, dude is XXL fam (sometimes y’all names come up in meetings—don’t sleep we’re reading the comments, so we see what you’re saying even if we don’t always holla back).

So, in honor of the homie’s wedding tomorrow, I thought I’d put together a play list and suggest some hip-hop songs that Mr. and Mrs. Pierzy can play at their wedding tomorrow.

Cheers! —Rob Markman

Nothing is more memorable as that first dance as husband and wife. Here are a few rap songs that don’t contain the words “bitch” or “hoe.”

Common “The Light”
I’m not sure if there’s a more appropriate rap song for getting hitched. “You know I ain’t the type to walk around with matching shirts/But relationships are effort I will match your work.” That’s real talk. Plus, there aren’t any curses in this song, so it safe to play around kids and old folks. Word to O-Dog!

LL Cool J “I Need Love”
“I Need Love” is the original hip-hop love song. The truth is LL changed the game when he dropped this one and gave MCs a blueprint to express their emotions without completely being on some sucka shit. Just think about how many rappers swagger jacked the, “When I’m alone in my room, sometimes I stare at the wall” line.

    I am honored and flattered. I appreciate all the love I get here and I enjoy conversing and debating the culture with everybody.

    Thank you, especially, to the one and only Rob The Music Ed. He’s a great dude and someone I consider a friend, even if we’ve never met in person.

    Aight, y’all, almost time for the hotel and the rehearsal/dinner. I’ll see you on the other side!

    I know is old but “the show” should there somewhere, blend it with “Teach me how to Dougie”, is doable.

  • Viski

    Thanks y’all!

    One thought: Did Nas’s “Getting Married” not make the cut because, you know, the marriage didn’t make the cut?

  • No Name

    “I’d never call you my bitch, or even my boo.” See, “The Light” does have curses, doesn’t make it less appropriate, just saying.

    • robmarkman

      I stand corrected. Good call. I should probably fix that.

  • Q461

    Yo congrats Pierzy! Good luck homey, I just got married 6 months ago myself.

    As far as what we played ,well, it was semi-hip hop. Alicia Keys -No one was our first song that we danced to and we came out to Black Eyed Peas- I got a feeling ( not really hip-hop to keep it 100, but it’s in that stratosphere)

    My wife is South American, so there was alot of salsa, bachata, mereingue and shit. But they did play Pitbull, that joint Calle Ocho ( again, not really hip-hop but in the zone) and a buncha reggaetone joints.

    At the end of the night however, when cats were all drunk, the DJ played House of Pain-jump around, Rob Base-it takes two, and even Luke- Doo Doo Brown! lol Niggaz were breakdancing and shit and it was alot of fun. Before the last dance, the DJ played Jay-Z-Empire State of Mind.

    In any case, lots of luck to you homey, Hope you have a blessed day.

    “and if u figure out the way to communicate with a woman. Post that shyt.”

    ^ LoLz

    I ain’t gonna lie, it’s a good day when a cat can come here and chop it up with the peeps w/o the fukk boi comment sh^t. Dudes had freestyle sessions and weekend long commentary for a minute here.

    Shouts 2 Rob for recognizing the comment heads.

  • styles11

    Congrats Pierzy. and here i thought xxl website was operated by a robot. Nice to see you guys notice the people that make this website worth checking out.
    Hey Pierzy make sure you get plenty of chain on that collar. Congrats to the mrs as well.

    That UGK track is the only one Id bang out of that list. Although Im not even slightly a fan of R&B I have to admit they own the whole wedding market. Hip Hop still aint a fan of marriage.

  • ReagansSwagger

    “Me and my Bitch” !

  • abdulnasir

    Haven’t commented in a while, but I guess today I have a reason to. Play Method Man’s “Your All I Need”, the one with the Biggie sample. “Ride together, cry together. I swear to God I hope we fucking die together!” HA! HA! Much love man.


    Nice, bless the god, hope you and yours have a great life together. Remember right wrong or crooked, you back each other up and don’t go to bed mad.

  • Capital G

    Oh shit! Congratulations P!!! Best of luck and all that nice shit.

  • King Joffy Joe

    Wow. These posts get more bitch inspired every day. “Songs To Play At Your Wedding?” On a “Hip-Hop” website? SMDH. How about, “Songs That Make You Not Want To EVER Trust Something That Bleeds For 7 Days And DOES NOT Die?”

  • fanatic

    so into you – Fabolous !!!!

  • http://thetonygrands.wordpress.com/ Tony Grands

    Fuck Piercy.

    • Capital G

      Fuck YOU, you fraudulent piece of shit. Spreading hate on the man’s wedding celebration and hiding behind a stand up dude’s name. Don’t sweat it though, some day same sex marriage will be legalized in whatever shit hole state you live in and you and your life partner can eat eachother’s dick to death.

      ps. You misspelled Pierzy, stupid.

        • Capital G

          Damn lil’ man, you stalking me all over this site! It’s almost flattering you sweat another man so hard, hence your stalker ass self using a wrestling name to post. Ain’t nothing about you real or original and you should be ashamed it takes you days on end to come up with a weak rebuttal. I’m arguing with a kid who wears a helmet just to adjust his velcro sneakers. Now you were saying…
