Default More like "Dance With the Devil" and "You Never Know"

I really enjoy those two songs by Immortal Technique. I like the story he tells and how he tells it, it's almost like you are THERE with Billy Jacobs in "Dance With the Devil" or you are the guy who likes the girl who dies in "You Never Know."

My question is: Are there any other songs by any other artists that can tell a story and make you feel like you are in the story? If so, please post them. You don't have to link, just give a song title and who it's by.

I lvoe these kind of songs.

This is a really well known one, but "Murder Was the Case" by Snoop Dogg is a pretty good example of what you're talking about (the album version not the crappy remix). It actually has surprisingly good lyrics and I find the descriptions of prison near the end to be particularly vivid.

BIG - I got a story to tell. That would have to be legit the most story telling song by any rapper. Legit at the end of the song he starts telling the story he just rapped about to his boys!
