They’re Not All Hardcore: Rappers Whose Reality Shows Revealed Their Soft Sides

December 18, 2012 ‐ By Cecily Michelle

Rappers might be all “bang, bang shoot ’em up, I only got love for the skrippers” in their lyrics, but one good thing that has come out of reality TV is seeing that these entertainers aren’t really about that life. Over the past few years, we’ve seen some of the most hardcore lyricists, not to mention criminals, go from dudes you’d be scared to cross in a parking lot to being soft as teddy bears when it comes to their ladies and their kids. Here are a few of those characters whose soft sides shine through brightly on their reality shows.

“I am a nightmare walking, psychopath talking/king of my jungle, just a gangsta stalking,” one of the most vicious lines ever spit by the man deemed the originator of gangsta rap, but on “Ice Loves Coco,” it’s evident that Mr. Eff the Police isn’t all that heartless. Apparently Coco is sweet enough to tame the beast in the west coast vet, and it’s pretty obvious that his son Tracy and Spartacus, the family bulldog, don’t do too bad of a job either.

    I know that rappers have families and they love their families, but I also think that rappers work in an industry that makes it’s money on a foundation of misogyny. So soft side or not, a lot of them want our kids to support their bs while raising their children in a totally different environment.

      Agreed. Rappers so often create personas that go against their own real-life lifestyle choices, including how they raise their kids. It’s too ironic.
