18 Songs Inspired by Yo Mama

In many parts of the world, Mother’s Day falls in May. A lot of us actually celebrate it twice: Mother’s Day in our country and in Amurka. A few years ago, I learned the hard way to never dare not take flowers to my momma on May 10. I almost got the chancla.

To commemorate this important date, we’ve prepared a list of songs inspired by the one who pushed you out of her v’jay jay. Disclaimer…not all of these are endearing songs you can play for your mom on the phone (remember when we used to call people and play songs for them?), unless you really wanna piss her off. Enjoy!
