Dogs really are a rapper's best friend. Free from the drama that accompanies clout-chasing social media thots and back-stabbing fake friends looking for an easy cash out, emcees are down to share their genuine bonds with their four-legged friends freely with the world. Celebrated by their furry companions for love and affection and not for their status or cash, rappers are quick to dish on the genuine strength of the bond between man and dog. 

"If you're going through different stuff, if you're feeling a certain way, an animal is always going to be there the same way," says Waka Flocka Flame in a 2012 PSA against animal cruelty. "No matter how you feel. An animal isn't going to curse you out. An animal isn't going to fight you. He's going to show you nothing but love. An animal is just like you, so be cautious of what you do."

While most rappers show love to muscle dogs like Pit Bulls, Rottweilers and chubby English Bulldogs who help to boost their (literally) top-dog image on social media for the benefit of their fans and haters alike, some artists like Kevin Gates take their breed preference to the extreme. Boasting a $90k price tag, Gates is unafraid to challenge his pet-loving industry mates with the claim that he "got the most exotic dog in the game. God blessed me with it."
