A type of song intended to apologize for a rapper's previous wrongdoing(s). The song may or may not reflect the rapper's sincere thoughts, but it is undoubtedly a way to capitalize on his or her mistake(s).
Me: T.I.'s "Dead and Gone" is a catchy and believable example of Redemption Rap, while Chris Brown's "Changed Man" is Redemption Rap gone wrong. It's a pathetic attempt to guilt the listener into forgiving him, and I'm sure Chris Rock doesn't appreciate the allusion to his hit show.
