Happy Mother's Day from HNHH!
Even the grittiest of gangster rappers have their mothers to thank for much of their success, and they don't always get the credit or respect they deserve. As such, and in celebration of Mother's Day, we've compiled a gallery of 25 photos of emcees with their moms, from Tupac Shakur to Kanye West.
Even if you won't be seeing your mother today, make sure you let her know what she means to you, one way or another.
To all the moms out there, keep doing what you do - you're appreciated and we love you.
