Love, Quotes

Jay -Z and Beyonce are one of the greatest power couples of our time. Their support and love for each other is transparent -- and frankly it makes us jealous. But wait, didn't the rapper once croon about how a “bitch” ain’t one of his problems? And, who could forget that 90s love song, "Money, Cash, Hoes." Not exactly something he’d serenade Queen Bey with, methinks.

Rap is a genre filled with the type of lyrics that could make a grown man blush. But big booties, baby mamas and the strippers aside, these rappers often leave with some pretty heartfelt quotes on love and relationship.

So what's the deal? Which is the real Akon? Rappers, you confuse us. We'll let you be the judge as we compare rappers’ lyrics to their quotes, yo.

If I don’t want you next to me in that fifteen, twenty seconds, then there’s something wrong. - Quotelicious.com

Just focus on your talent, the positive things of life that you do. – whosdatedwho.com
