21 Gun Salute: 21 Hip-Hop Songs Dedicated To Guns

50 Cent "Hold Me Down" (2009)


Complex says: You might be surprised to see this is the first solo 50 Cent record on this list. Whether it be “Heat,” “Gunz Come Out,” or “My Gun Go Off” it seems like every 50 album has an entire song dedicated to guns. But the truth is, none of those songs are really any different from any other 50 Cent song because despite the hook being all about guns, the verses are standard 50 cent verses with him rapping about being a badass. The sole exception is “Hold Me Down.” On the track, 50 opts for one of his trademark melodic choruses, adding a light-hearted vibe to an otherwise hardcore rap record entirely dedicated to his weapon of choice. Shouts to 50 for not only loving his gun, but also singing lullabies to it. Aww, so sweet.
