Rap Music Videos

Rap music is one of the most popular genres of music today, and it has tremendous influence on teenagers and young adults around the world. Many rap music fans watch their favorite artists perform in rap music videos, so that they can learn more about rap culture and fashion. Rap videos are particularly entertaining because they feature great music and dance, as well as unique styles of dress.

There is a wide selection of rap music videos on the Internet and television, and rap fans can watch the latest videos for free. One of the best places to watch rap videos is MTV, both on television and online. MTV showcases the most recent music videos by popular rappers such as: Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Xzibit, 50 Cent, Nelly, Eminem, Kool G, and Missy Elliott, as well as videos of old hits by legendary rap figures such as: Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and Notorious Big. Rap music enthusiasts will also get to see the performances of some lesser known rappers and new talents on MTV.

Other than MTV, rap music videos are also available in websites such as: MuVids, RapVideo.com, Rap Basement, and others. Some rap videos may be too liberal for broadcasting on television and certain websites, because they promote violence, sex, and the use of drugs. Such videos have to go through considerable censorship before they are aired. To satisfy the curiosity of hardcore rap music fans, some websites offer uncensored rap videos. A few of these websites are: Best Urban Videos, Music Video Rap, and Good Look Videos. Another website that offers a great selection of rap videos is YouTube.

Since rap music became a mainstream music genre about one or two decades ago, numerous rap videos have been produced and broadcasted. Some of these videos are especially popular among rap fans, and they are widely considered the definitive rap videos. A few of these include: "Triumph" by the Wu-Tang Clan, "Phone Tap" by The Firm, "One Mic" by Nas, "Nuthing But a G Thang" by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, "Shook Ones" by Sway and Tech, "I'll Bee Dat" by Redman, "Y.O.U" by Method Man and Redman, "Saturday" by Ludacris, and "Gin and Juice" by Snoop Dogg.
