Update: Dive into the best new hip hop with our list of 2020's top rap songs.

When it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits, including personal relationships. Hip hop songs about exes are common in the genre, and for this list, it's up to you to vote up the very best rap songs about ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends. How many good hip hop songs about exes can you think of off the top of your head? Below you'll find popular songs that you've definitely heard before, but also some more underground rap songs that discuss exes in the title or lyrics.

While Big Sean's popular hit "I Don't F*** with You" might be the unofficial anthem about exes everywhere, J. Cole and Eminem also rap about the pros and cons of leaving their ex-girlfriends. And Drake's "Hotline Bling" inspired a huge following – and many playful parodies – when it premiered in 2015.

You can add your own music to this list, so feel free to contribute with any new rap songs about exes that aren't already listed on the poll.
