Songs For Mom

Filed under: Chat 'bout,Flashback — Felicia @ 2:28 pm

Several songs from various genres have been made over the years as an ode to mother dearest. I heard one of my favorite “mom songs” on the radio recently, and started thinking of several of my favorite songs that highlight our old earth. Check some of my top mom songs below:

Kanye West “Hey Mama” Late Registration

Mr. West released this gem on his second album under the Roc-A-Fella umbrella. It wasn’t released as a solo single, but it was a record that I really enjoyed from the album.

Gyptian “Ma Ma” My Name Is Gyptian Gyptian

Windell Beneto Edwards better known in the Jamaican Roots assemblage as Gyptian, released “Ma Ma” from his debut album back in 2006. Another record that wasn’t released as a solo, but still garnered attention toward the album.

Boyz II Men “Song For Mama” Soul Food Original Soundtrack

A beautiful song created back in ’97 from Philly quartet Boyz II Men. This may be inappropriate, but every time I hear this song now I think of the “Itis” episode of The Boondocks. If you’ve never seen it then take a look, then tell me your visual when you hear this song now.

Song For Mama

2Pac “Dear Mama” Me Against The World 2Pac

Now what’s of ‘mama songs’ without the ultimate tribute? Perhaps not the ultimate, but definitely one of the top 3 that comes to mind. Released from his third album under Interscope, the late Tupac Shakur paid homage to his former Black Panther mom. Their connection to each other was so paramount.
