R&B and hip-hop lyrics have always excited the people — but not always in a good way. Every once in a while, an artist will release a track that causes an onset of attacks from bloggers, critics and even social justice groups. As a result, the singers or rappers are faced with boycotts and removed from the radio.

Sometimes these lyrics are personal and reflect a conversation that needs to take place about topics that have gone dormant in listeners’ minds. Lupe Fiasco, Frank Ocean, Lil Wayne and many other artists have been guilty of crossing this line.

Whether you were a passive listener who kept jamming to these tunes without regard for content or one who started an on-line petition against them, here are 10 Controversial Hip-Hop and R&B Songs that recently set the internet on fire.
