pharcyde - drop.. one of the best rap videos..shows the video is completely backwards..and the pharcyde members memorised their rhymes backwards so it looks normal!

jjfp - summertime - just a great video completely capturing the essence of the song!

souls of mischief - 93 til infinity .. just a really well shot video..beautiful scenery interesting locations, and again that great vibe like the summertime vid

this reminds me of somethin when MTV used to have artists pick their favorite videos..cant remember the name of the show..but LL Cool J rated pharcyde's drop as one of his favorites.. and kylie minogue had summertime as her 2nd all time fav video..i remember how she was talking about how she remembers when it first came out..and she loved it! :thumb:

Here's my all time favorites in no random order:

BDP feat. Doug E. Fresh, MC Lyte, Heavy D, Public Enemy, and others "Self Destruction", Such a powerful song and video, nice to see all these legends in one video

Public Enemy "Fight The Power", another powerful song and video, it was for Spike Lee's classic "Do The Right Thing"

BDP "My Philosophy", the 1st black and white video in hip-hop history, it was a nice tribute to the great Scott La Rock

2Pac and Dr. Dre "California Love", this video is like a movie, the hip-hop's version of "Thriller", this shows the artistic genious of 2Pac

Rakim "When I Be On Da Mic", a nice throwback video in the late '90s

Eric B. and Rakim "Microphone Fiend", it shows a young kid lovin' to go on the mic, this is what hip-hop is all about

Slick Rick "Children's Story", one of the funniest videos ever

Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg "Ain't Nothin' But A 'G' Thing", this represents the west coast vibe

Naughty By Nature "Hip-Hop Horray", Naughty By Nature tearin' it up, 'Jersey's hip-hop at it's finest

LL Cool J and Boyz II Men "Hey Lover", such a smooth mid-90s vibe just like the song

and last but not least DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince "Parents Just Don't Understand", this hilarious video inspired the creation of "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air"

Beastie Boys - Intergalactic (This just seemed ahead of it's time, beastie Boys going round Japan rapping while a giant robot fights a evil squid, haha)

De La Soul - Ooh Ooh (I think thats what it's called, i've only seen it once and the members of DLS are dressed up like in the story to Follow The Yellow Brick Road, it's just hilarious)

DJ Format - We Know Something You Dont Know (Breakdancing animals, enough said)

JJFP - Summertime (Just pure bliss, it brings out all the emotions of summer)

I also love "Drop" by The Pharcyde, along with their video for "Passin Me BY" also.

P.s I thought there were 3 videos for "Jesus Walks" by Kanye.

Word. That's a great video.

Lauryn Hill: Everything is Everything

JJFP: Summertime

KRS-ONE "Step Into A World"(Rapture's Delight), A perfect display of the hip-hop culture

FP "Miami", that was such a fun looking video, there was some nice eye candy in that video too

Nas feat. Lauryn Hill "If I Ruled The World", it's my favorite Nas video and song, this represents the street essence of hip-hop

Salt-N-Pepa feat. En Vogue "Whatta Man", what I can I say they were looking gorgeous in this video, it was a great song too, I know a lot of guys would've wanted to be in this video
