Here are all the best current hip-hop videos from your favorite leading artists.
- Nothin’ On You (feat. Bruno Mars) by B.o.B. Billed by MTV as the Video Music Awards dream team, Paramore, Bruno Mars and B.O.B. had some fun on stage as they rehearsed the three-song medley they ll perform on Sunday s show.
- Space Bound (Explicit) by Eminem. After a little more than an hour of a hard-as-nails set that had the bikini-clad rumps shaking at Bonnaroo, Eminem thanked the crowd and left the stage.
- All OF The Lights by Kanye West. Kanye West doesn't have the best track record as a festival attraction: remember the ill-planned performance at Bonnaroo 2008 when he emerged hours late to perform a lighting-show-reliant.
- Sex Room by Ludacris. Ludacris rode the early-2000s Dirty South explosion to widespread popularity, as his songs enjoyed an enormous embrace, mainly by urban media outlets but also MTV and pop radio.
- Roger That by Young Money.
- Backseat by New Boyz.
- Kush by Dr. Dre. More than any other rapper, Dr. Dre was responsible for moving away from the avant-noise and political stance of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions as well as the party vibes of old-school rap.
- The Time (Dirty Bit) by The Black Eyed Peas. Positive messages and breakdancing are integral parts of hip-hop culture, but by 1990 those elements had been temporarily eclipsed by the tough gangsta image and bleak but compelling lyrics of West Coast groups like N.W.A.
- Fast Lane by Bad Meets Evil.
