Just in case you’re not convinced that Hip Hop and Valentine’s Day don’t go together, check out Paul De Loecker‘s Hip-Hop love letter .

If you would ask a bunch of random people on the street what comes to mind when you say “Hip-Hop”, it’s safe to say the outcome would probably be a list of words like money, bling, drugs, violence, guns, women, cursewords etc … I’m pretty sure “Love” would not make the list. Unrightfully so though! I mean, as a hip-hop head, I’d be the first to admit that there are a lot of songs about drugs, money, guns … but, Hip-Hop is about life … and love is a big part of life … so love is undeniably a big part of Hip-Hop.
