You might think that personal relationships should stay, well, personal. But when it comes to rap music, no subject is off limits. Hip hop songs about relationships and love are common in the genre, and for this list, it's up to you to vote up the very best rap songs about relationships. How many good hip hop songs about relationships 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 relationships or love in the title or lyrics.

This list of rap songs about relationships discuss first kisses, fighting, and even breaking up.
