Which of these hip hop movies is the best of the 2000s? This list of hip hop films from the 2000s wouldn't be complete without 8 Mile starring Eminem.  But there are other great movies on this list like Notorious, a biographical hip hop movie that takes a look at the life of Christopher Wallace, also known as Notorious B.I.G. But are these the greatest hip hop or rap films released during the 2000s?

Other good hip hop films from the two-thousands include Get Rich or Die Tryin' and Hustle & Flow.

While most hip hop movies from the 2000s tend to be dramas there are a few comedies in there such as Janky Promoters and Malibu's Most Wanted. Vote up your favorite 2000s hip hop movies and vote down the rap movies that you didn't like to make sure the right film makes it to the top.
