Rappers have never been shy about comparing the streets they come from to war zones. And just as our brave soldiers in conflicts overseas suffer casualties, the streets have claimed plenty of lives.

Here's our list of Hip-Hop's 25 Greatest Memorial Songs. R.I.P. to those who aren't with us. This one's for you.
