When it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits. Hip hop songs about law enforcement and police brutality are common in the genre, and for this list, it's up to you to vote up the very best rap songs about police. How many good hip hop songs about police 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 with police or cops in the title or lyrics.

Covering themes like police brutality, racial profiling, and even cop killing, these rap songs about police use raw and violent lyrics to either get an important message across or to simply stir something inside listeners. Public Enemy and N.W.A. have songs specifically about the police, while Jay-Z raps about getting pulled over in his hit “99 Problems.” 

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