25 Hip-Hop Lyrics That Reference Easter
It’s that time of the year again for extended church services, dripped-out three-piece suits, Now and Later gators, bunny rabbit costumes and hunts for colorfully-painted eggs. Easter 2019 is upon us.
Unlike holidays such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day—where artists are known to come out with themed songs and projects centered around the coveted dates—Resurrection Sunday isn’t exactly one of the most popular among rappers in the musical aspect. But that’s not to say MCs haven’t given the day its fair share of shine throughout hip-hop history.
There have been some notable Easter moments over the years. Like the time Kanye West and Tyga dressed up as the Easter Bunny. Then there was the instance where Snoop Dogg found the Easter Bunny. And who can forget the wildly-intricate, ultimately wrong Easter theory surrounding Kendrick Lamar following the release of his Damn album in 2017.
When it comes to lyrics, rappers are not shy about referencing the holy day—even if totally taken out of context. Several rappers have mentioned the special day in rhymes throughout the years including Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Eminem, Drake, Rick Ross and more, whether referencing how well they clean up, the color of the contents of their double cup or any other creative metaphor.
With Easter 2019 upon us, XXL compiles a list of hip-hop lyrics that shout out the holiday.
