I have to admit, Valentine's Day really snuck up on me this year. I didn't even have time to get you flowers or a box of chocolates. My bad. Hopefully the following collection of YouTube links, my Top 12 Hip Hop Love Songs (in no particular order), will show just how much I appreciate you:
Tupac - Me and My Girlfriend
Ok, so this one is actually about Pac's gun. Still, its clear the man has a deep love for his burner. If you want to hear a version of this song dedicated to an actual woman, check out Jay-Z's remake, '03 Bonnie And Clyde.
I know some of you need actual mp3s to be satisfied, so I got some of those, too. First up, a double mixtape from my man Luka Brazzi: The Pompatus Of Love Mixed & Arranged By VahT.
Here's the tracklist from the first half of the mix:
01. Sade - Your Love is King
02. Bahamadia - I Confess
03. The Doors - Love Street
04. Common - The Light
05. Prince - Erotic City
06. Barry White - Playing Your Game, Baby
07. Loosie Music (Von Pea, Elucid & Spec Boogie) Tonight's the Night (Remix)
08. Pete Rock & Cl Smooth - Lots Of Lovin
09. J Dilla - The Donut Of The Heart
10. Cee-Lo - All Day Love Affair
11. Jose Feliciano - Golden Lady
12. Zero 7 - Red Dust
13. Atlanta Rhythm Section - So Into You
14. J. Rawls - A Tribute To Dilla
15. Lauryn Hill - The Sweetest Thing
16. Maya Azucena - Junkyard Jewel
17. Curtis Mayfield - Give Me Your Love
18. Marvin Gaye - I Want You
19. Erykah Badu - 4 Leaf Clover
20. Lovage - Anger Management
And finally, Stones Throw has released another free mix. I've said before I'm not a huge fan of the label, but if they keep offering stuff for free I'll have no choice but to change my mind. Anyway, Stones Throw artist Peanut Butter Wolf has released his Valentine's Mix, available for free until tonight. Head on over to Stones Throw's website and download it!

I had heard the Tupac song a bunch of times but never bothered to really listen to the lyrics. Not that the song is subtle or anything but I didnt realize he was rapping about his gun.
