In the midst of Cuffin Season, I decided to show my romantic side in my own way with a playlist I call “Thug Luv.”

With this mix I focused on love-themed rap songs, but don’t expect to find any Drake on this one. Instead, I aimed for artists who typically use their lyrics for street talk as opposed to sweet talk. In other words, I wanted to have some fun with this playlist and used rappers that aren’t usually known for their softer, lovey-dovey side in their music. There’s definitely a lot of throwbacks on here, featuring songs that might’ve made it to mixtapes that were made for your crush back in walkman days. Keeping it NY, I put together tracks with Jadakiss, Jay-Z, vintage G-Unit, and even the Boss Don Biggavel, Max B. You’ll also find newer tracks from 2 Chainz and Young Thug that found a way to profess their love while keeping it trap. Of course, I had to close it out with Cam’ron who has an imaginable way with words, no matter what the topic. Unfortunately, I found out “Weekend Girl” wasn’t available to stream, but if you have this in your personal music library like me, I’m sure this a perfect tune for the little thug lover in your life.

“Thug Luv” had me thinking about my BAE all day, and it might do the same for you.
