In the context of this article, death is approached from the postmortem practice of burial. There are no references to embalming, mummification or cremation. Who in their right mind would write a song about those things anyways? Well maybe somebody, but it doesn’t happen here! Still, these joints have the cemetery in mind.

1) Rick Ross featuring T.I., “Bury Me A G” (Self Made Volume 2, 2012)

Somehow, Thomas manages to accomplish this feat on his third effort The Great Unknown, keeping things contemporary by pop standards in 2015. At the same time, Thomas doesn’t drift away from what makes him, well, Rob Thomas fo...
