When it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits – and that includes the painful ones. Hip hop songs about heartbreak are common in the genre, and for this list, it's up to you to vote up the very best rap songs about heartbreak. How many good hip hop songs about heartbreak can you think of off the top of your head? Below you'll find popular songs that might have scored your own personal dark moments, but also some more underground rap songs with heartbreak in the title or lyrics.

Drake is known for his many songs about heartbreak, including "Marvin's Room" and "Take Care." However, other rappers like J. Cole, Jay-Z, and even 2Pac have wrapped about getting their hearts broken and crying over past lovers. There's no shame in sharing about lost love, especially if it leads to a great song.

You can add your own music to this list, so feel free to contribute with any new rap songs about a broken heart that don't already appear on the poll.
