20. Mashonda feat. Jadakiss - "Can't Leave the Block Alone"

Talk about the pathos of thug love: On this 2005 NYC mixtape hit, Mashonda and Jadakiss embodied the pain felt by drug dealers and the women who love them. Over a beat that's almost sinister in its recollection of a summertime ice cream truck, the R&B singer expresses her fear and worry that her man might be arrested or worse. Jadakiss is the dealer in question, rapping "Long as the love never outwears the trust/And you understand that I'm out there for us."
