I have been a fan of music videos for my whole life. From the 1st time my parents sprung for cable, I started watching MTV and I haven’t stopped 25 years later. I think this is due to the fact that I love both music and film and this medium combines them both. Over the last 10 years or so Hip Hop has become the most popular music in the United States; go look at the Billboard Hot 100, I bet you at least 50% of the artists on the chart are Hip Hop artists.
I am a fan of Hip Hop, unlike my friends who are fans of “Underground Hip Hop” (Some examples of “Underground Hip Hop” include: Atmosphere
, Del tha Funkee Homosapia
n, and Murs
to name a few). While I can appreciate these acts and in fact like a few, Gangsta Rap is my favorite genre of Hip Hop. I especially love Southern “Dope Boy
” Hip Hop and by far, my favorite rapper is Lil Wayne
So you must be asking yourself “What the hell does Brian liking Lil Wayne have to do with the world’s greatest hip hop video?”
Wayne and Birdman have created the greatest hip hop video of all time. That video is “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy”. This video is the most straight up gansta video ever, let me give you a play by play of its greatness:
* Weezy and Baby are chillin with some hoes, when the cops try to raid the spot. Baby and Wayne bust through one of the walls on GXR 1110
and the chase starts.
* Baby and Weezy switch cars and spit rhymes while they run from the cops. Btw the Car is a Donk.
* In between the “actual story” Wayne drinks cough syrup
and throws money around, Baby busts some of his rhymes while getting a neck tattoo, that right a NECK TATTOO.
• Baby and Weezy outrun the cops, blow up their car and escape to be gangsta yet another day.
Now you may be thinking to yourself, “That is like every hip hop video I have ever seen”, I agree with you; it is every Hip Hop video you have ever seen all rolled into one video, and that’s what makes it great. Well and Baby gets a fucking neck tattoo while rapping, and I don’t know about you but to me that shit looks real.
