Default story telling songs!

hey I was just listening to my iTunes on shuffle and heard Immortal Technique's Dance With The Devil & Boogiemonsters (Thanks 86) Old Man Jacob's Well, & was wondering if anyone knows any other story telling songs like that! Songs like Insane Poetry's One Careless Moment

It doesn't have to be morbid or anything like those ones listed. and it doesn't have to be strictly a story, it can have a little wiggle room like B.I.G.'s Gimme Tha Loot or Warning.

I'd like to get a collection of songs like that and maybe make a playlist or something.

Frank Zappa's Titties & Beer is a great storytelling song. It's about Frank's meeting with the devil on the Mountain of Mystery and it's awesome.

off the top of my head...


Tupac - brendas got a baby (probably didn't have to list that one)

Apathy - the janitor

Apathy - same ol same ol

D12 - Revelation

DMX - All of the "Damien" songs

Big Daddy Kane - somebodys been sleeping in my bed

Cuban Link - letter to pun (not so much a story but literally a letter to his dead friend - big pun)

Jedi Mind Tricks feat RA the Rugged man - Uncommon Valour: A vietnam story

Jurassic 5 - Remember his name

Lowkey feat Logic - Relatives

Masta Ace - Dear Diary (sort of a discussion rather than a story)

Eminem - stan (obviously)

Fort Minor - feel like home

Hilltop Hoods - what the seasons change

Hilltop Hoods - Stopping all stations

Nas - Rewind

Pez - Lost

Respek BA - In Dreams

Royce 5'9 - Death is Certain pt.II

Sage Francis - Runaways

Tech N9ne - The Rain (Factual not fictional, the story of how he struggles to keep in touch with his family now that he's getting some form of celebrity status)

Will Smith - Loretta (true story about a women who stalked him)

A Tribe Called Quest - Phony Rappers

A Tribe Called Quest feat Faith Evans - Stressed Out

^It is possible to post several times in a thread you know. Like instead of posting a list of 25 songs, you could elaborate on one or two of them so that your info comes in a chunk that it's possible to check out and digest in one go.

"Tangled Up in Blue" and "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts" spring to mind.

the first verse on this one is story style:

YouTube - Murs ft. The Grouch - Angels

YouTube - Scarface-The Best Of Scarface-The Wall

YouTube - Yukmouth Ft Z-Ro & Trae -Hard Tymez -- very "thugged out" but it's deep

YouTube - CORMEGA-FALLEN SOLDIERS (REMIX)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IFQa9X8iF8--- some of you might recognize this as a Rick Ross track. **** rick ross.....this is the original!


all I'm gonna post for now
