The best hip hop music videos, voted on, suggested and ranked by music lovers, take us back decades to earlier days of rap and hip hop music and span into the present. But how does the past, with the likes of NWA and Public Enemy, compare to newer artists like Lil Wayne and Kanye West? That's up to you folks. Vote for your favorite rap videos and add any we've missed below.

Though certainly not the first to rap, notable older rap groups and rappers like Ice Cube and Run DMC certainly paved the way for artists to come. Like the best rock music videos, these rappers created classic videos that laid the groundwork for future generations of rappers to improve upon.

Perhaps some of the best hip hop videos came from the 1990s when the East Coast versus West Coast rap battles brought us memorable videos from artists like Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre. With each coast trying to outdo the other, some of the best hip hop songs were created as a result.

Moving into more recent work, the rap and hip hop world continues to flourish with notable new rappers popping up everyday. Hip hop and rap music is not going away anytime soon and that only means that this list of the best hip hop videos will only continue to grow throughout the years.
