The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

49. Mac Dre "Morals and Standards" (2003)

Album: Al Boo Boo
Producer: Traxx
Label: Thizz Entertainment

Mac Dre's "Morals and Standards" begins with a parental advisory warning: put the kids to bed cause shit is about to get real. He wasn't lying; he catches a drug possession charge in the first verse and ends up in lock-up, where he becomes fast friends with his cellmate Edgar. He seems like a halfway decent guy until he gets out and takes it upon himself to track down Mac's family and usurp his role as husband and father. The jig is immediately up when Mac gets out on parole and immediately comes to reclaim his place, murdering Ed in cold blood for stepping out of his station.
