10 Rappers Who Have Gotten Caught Crying
We might be dating ourselves a little bit here. But, remember Tom Hanks’ memorable quote in the 1992 movie, A League of Their Own? “There’s no crying!” he yelled at one player (played by Madonna) who started to tear up in the middle of a game after he yelled at her. “There’s no crying in baseball!”
Well, the same can be said for rap. There’s no crying in rap! Rappers are supposed to be tough, macho manly men, not sniffling little crybabies. And yet, every now and then we catch one of them crying. The latest one to get caught? Soulja Boy, who had tears streaming down his face during the Whitney Houston tribute at the 2012 BET Awards on Sunday night. We can’t necessarily fault him for it—after all, there were plenty of watery eyes all across the nation at that moment—but never in a million years did we expect to see Mr. Tell ‘Em showing so much emotion out in public.
Soulja Boy is far from the first rapper to get caught crying, though. In fact, there have been a number of rappers who have turned on the waterworks over the years. So, after seeing Soulja Boy’s outburst, we decided to put together a list of 10 Rappers Who Have Gotten Caught Crying. We can only imagine what Tom Hanks would have thought if he’d seen these guys bawling their eyes out.—Chris Yuscavage
