These Are the Best Emo Hip-Hop Songs Of The Last 5 Years

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.
