On Sunday, June 21st, the World will celebrate Father’s Day. Urban artists always had a conflicted relationship with fatherhood. Most artists from the Golden Era addressed the fact that their fathers were absent of their lives. Twenty years later, things have changed as these artists have their own children and with the success of hip hop can reverse the roles. These past years, a lot of them have released songs celebrating fatherhood.
To celebrate this special day, TRACE has put together a list of 10 essential songs for Father’s Day. Enjoy it!
