These Are the Best Emo Hip-Hop Songs Of The Last 5 Years! Emo rap is music whose lyrics are biased on an emotional and confessional subject matter from breakups to suicide.
Over the last 5 years, artists like Juice Wrld, XXXTentacion, Lil Peep and Tripple Redd have helped in its growth. Thanks to the artists, the sub-genre is now a common sound sometimes merging hip-hop and rock music.
Back in 2017, “XO Tour Llif3” by Lil Uzi Vert became a Billboard Hot 100 top ten charting hit. In the song, Lil Uzi sings about dead friends. In the same year, “Jocelyn Flores” by X was released and commanded immense success on a cultural level. The song was a tribute to X’s fiend who committed suicide and is still one of the best hip-hop tracks of all time on his list.
Juice Wrld and Lil Peep were very vocal about their rock influences as evidenced by their music.
It’s certain that emo rap is here to stay and will continue to influence the sound of hip-hip.
