Happy Mother’s Day! On this special day, your favorite hip-hoppers and R&B singers went on social media to salute their moms with heartfelt tweets, touching photos or thank yous.
Artists such as Kanye West, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, Tyga, Juicy J, Timbaland, Rita Ora, Birdman, Jennifer Lopez, Busta Rhymes, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz and many others went on Twitter or Instagram to show their love and respect for their beloved matriarchs.
This day is even more significant because a week ago we lost Afeni Shakur, the mother of Tupac, who passed away at age 69. Of course, 2Pac’s classic 1995 ode “Dear Mama,” is a song that still holds dear to our hearts.
On the official 2Pac Twitter account, a tweet was left in remembrance to Afeni. “Mother taught me 3 things; respect, knowledge & the search for knowledge is eternal, and not be quiet,” it reads.
So without further ado, here’s a list of our favorite posts from artists who remembered their mothers. And like the late Tupac Shakur rapped on “Dear Mama”: “There’s no way I can pay you back / But the plan is to show you that I understand / You are appreciated.”
