The 25 Most Depressing Rap Songs

16. Ice Cube "Dead Homiez" (1990)

Album: Kill At Will
Producer: Chilly Chill
Label: Priority

The fact that death doesn't even sound like it phases Ice Cube is what makes this record so depressing. As the lyric goes, "The city is so fucking messed up," but instead of countering this, there's pure desensitization. It seems like conditions will never improve, and unfortunately, the people plagued by the violence in the urban communities Ice Cube is rapping about here have accepted it.
