According to Wikipedia, September 11, 2001 goes down as the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history. The attacks on both the Word Trade Center in New York and The Pentagon in Virginia left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 people injured.

Though it’s been 18 years since the tragic event, I remember it like it was yesterday. I don’t wanna tell my age, but I vividly remember sitting in Sr. Judith Therese’s math class when our principal, Sr. Richard Francis (I went to private school), announced on the loud speaker that we would be leaving school early. I didn’t know the seriousness of it until I got home and watched the news.

Since that day, it’s safe to say that 9/11 affected all of us, including hip-hop. The music community was greatly affected and rappers had a lot to say about the tragedy. From Jay-Z to Lupe Fiasco to Consequence, here are what a few rappers had to say about 9/11.
