List Rules Movies must feature rap as a plot point.

A list of the best rap movies. All of the top films involving rap have been included, but if you believe we missed one please feel free to add it to the list yourself. This list includes all types of rap: east coast, west coast, gangsta, hip hop, pop, etc. While rap itself might not be for everyone, the films that use rap as a central theme are surprisingly accessible. "8 Mile" is not just a great rap movie, it's great film in general. While the majority of the films on this list are dramas, some are also comedies. If you enjoy rap, or movies in general, you're bound to love at least some of the films on this list.
