Moms have an … interesting relationship with rap, from beautiful odes like “Dear Mama” and “Dance” to the complete opposite in “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.” Mother’s Day is here again, so we wanted to take this opportunity to recognize the weirdest moments for moms in rap.
That Time Cam’Ron Let His Mom Rap
Dedications to mom are a commonplace now, but Killa Cam took it to the next level when he let his dear, lovely mother rap on his debut album in 1998. A wonderfully weird dedication to one of the realest, Fredericka Giles.
Crying Christian Mom Reads “Norf Norf” Lyrics
Parents hate on rap lyrics all the time, but this mom took it to new heights when she spent 11 minutes ranting about how Vince Staples is poisoning our youth. There would be nothing to see here if she hadn’t spent 5 minutes reading lyrics to the 3-minute track, perfectly peppering in uninformed social commentary, sobbing, and of course, a healthy dose of N-words.
And of course the internet blessed us with a remix, lining up the original Clams Casino beat with her painfully awkward reading.

Shout out to her mom for knowing who he was and giving her daughter a dope memory.

As fans of hip-hop, we’re subjected to a lot of cringe-worthy music from people who have no business behind a mic. That’s exactly what happened when Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham’s mom, aka DebzOG, launched a personal attack on our ears. It sounds like an even more antiquated and whitewashed version of a PG-13 movie rap. Imagine a parody of a rap song that’s meant to be taken 100% seriously — that’s what this is.
And if that’s not bad enough, she’s wearing a leather and fur outfit that makes 2007 Britney Spears look classy.
Eminem Cleans Out His Closet
Eminem spent his best years bashing his mom to Hades, but he flipped it suddenly on “Headlights” in 2014. The audio apology was so deep, it was odd. Hopefully, they have fixed their issues.
And, yes. That’s Ann Coulter, a mother f.
