    It's that time of the year again - Valentine's Day! The romantic holiday is upon us and we thought we'd share some of the love in the hip-hop community. Love and hip-hop doesn't have to be synonymous with ratchet behavior and baby daddy / momma drama, although you may be under a different impression if you've ever watched a full episode of VH1's Love & Hip-Hop.

    There's quite a bit of repetition in the game these days, and specific bars are often overlooked (with the exception of Drake's poesy). This is an opportunity to take a closer listen and really consider what these artists have to say. We encourage your opinions.
