New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Entertainment is constantly searching for new ways to reinvent itself. Genres merging, new topics being explored, experimental techniques - everything comes in handy. It is especially relevant concerning the music industry, where singers and songwriters try to explore all kinds of fields and areas of our culture. With gambling being a staple in the pop-culture consciousness, it is no wonder that many songs feature topics of gambling games and casinos. In this article, we will look into songs about gambling focusing on the rap genre.

First of all, let's figure out why this topic is featured so often in hip-hop and rap songs. While being very rich and diverse music styles, they often feature themes of money, wealth and luxury; the whole vibe and rhythm of rap music involve quite a lot of risqué or flashy subjects, pumps of adrenalin and elements of danger. Can you think of any other spheres where all these feelings are internalized? Right, gambling and casinos.

A casino has been featured as an embodiment of the world of luxury and ardour in a lot of pieces of modern entertainment, take James Bond, for instance. Gambling's reputation is engulfed in money, high stakes and excitement. Of course, it does not always reflect the reality of the field, but it makes sense that this subject makes an electrifying addition to any plot or action. Without further ado let's dive into the world of the best gambling songs.

Vegas by Kendrick Lamar
"If Gambling is A Sin, Then I'm Rolling Dice With Lucifer To Make Sure I Ain't Losing You" sings an already acknowledged songwriting genius Lamar. Love is a gamble, we have always known that.  A beautiful allusion to the high stakes while falling in love with someone, to the menacing point of willing to make a deal with the devil, all for love. The singer goes on to explore the dangerous affair and draw parallels between the rush of new love and the rush of going all-in on the bet and winning big. Or ultimately, losing all, just like in the case of the failed love story. Beautiful, yet dark allegory on love and gambling earns a place on our list.



It Was a Good Day by Ice Cube  
"What's The Haps On The Craps? Shake 'Em Up, Shake 'Em Up", in this song the main character describes his perfect day and embedded the game of craps, winning in it with a superb combination and just going on about his day with the best possible attitude and outcomes.

Life is a Gamble by Big K.R.I.T
Similar to Kendrick Lamar's song, this composition compares gambling to life itself, and how events in our everyday reality often resemble the mechanics of games. "They say life (is a gamble)

So be careful when you shake em up, shake em up, shake em up…", the song consists of the numerous metaphors going back and forth between life and casino games, how you can be on a winning row at some point, and then lose everything, coming back on top afterwards. It is one of the powerful examples of good gambling songs. 

Countin by 2 Chainz
This is the song that capitalizes on the images of wealth and luxury, splashing the cash, buying expensive things and generally enjoying all kinds of material goods. This includes betting and gambling. You can find out more about both of them at planet 7 oz casino and enjoy a great song by 2 Chainz.

This Plane by Wiz Khalifa
This song is a curious combination of issues concerning fame and wealth, relationships with people and loneliness. It goes from the pompous great times to devastating sad moments, while also incorporating some gambling references like socializing around an exciting game with friends.  

All About The Benjamins by Puff Daddy
First of all, let's clarify the identity of Benjamin. Who is he? He is Benjamin Franklin, more specifically 100$ bill with a portrait of this American president. As you can guess, this song is about money and how to spend it most lavishly. Including some casino fun times.

It is curious to see how the simple topic of gambling games can be dealt with through casino music and other related songs. Music can be heartbreaking and profound, very allegorical and imaginative, or simply fun and upbeat. The true power of songwriting is to apply different situations to the same pattern, experiment and see where it will lead you.
