It's difficult to express the pain of losing someone. But when it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits. Hip hop songs about loss are common in the genre, and for this list, it's up to you to vote up the very best rap songs about missing someone. How many good hip hop songs about missing someone have provided the soundtrack to your life? Below you'll find popular songs that you've definitely heard before, but also some more underground rap songs with themes of missing someone in the title or lyrics.

Some of these songs have personal meaning to the artists. After the murder of The Notorious B.I.G., Puff Daddy released his single "I'll Be Missing You" paying tribute to the late rapper. While many rap songs on this list of missing someone talk about deceased loved ones, others deal with missing ex-lovers and old flames, like Drake's "Hotline Bling" and Lil Dicky's "Molly."  

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