Top 5 (or so) Funniest Rap Videos

30 Jun

Hip-hop and humor have always gone hand-in-hand, so it’s only right that we highlight the funniest videos of all-time (in my humble, biased opinion).

I’m sure I forgot a bunch, and probably left off a few of your favorites because I personally never found them very funny (see: every first single from Eminem albums and nearly every attempt at humor by Snoop Dogg). If you want to take it up with me, do so in the comments.

So here they are, in no particular order:

1. I’ll Be Dat – Redman

Ok, I know I said in no particular order, but I’ll Be Dat is listed number one because it is number one. Far from being Redman’s only humorous video (evidence, evidence), I’ll Be Dat is his funniest effort. Non-stop laughs from beginning to end:

The rest of the list after the jump.

2. Get Back – Ludacris

Many say Ludacris picked up where Redman left off, at least in terms of energy and humor. Luda even included “big girls” (which Reggie Noble loves) in the Get Back video. Directed by Spike Jonze.

3. What They Do – The Roots

The Roots took a swipe at the materialism and general corniness in hip-hop in the mid 90s with this one. And actually, the video still holds up pretty well today.

4. Pass the Courvoisier Pt. 2 – Busta Rhymes featuring Diddy and Pharell

Busta is no stranger to over-the-top funny videos, and on Pass the Courvoisier he enlists the help of comedians Jamie Foxx and MoNique while spoofing a few hit movies.

5. Sabotage – Beastie Boys

This was one of the first music videos to make me laugh growing up and it still continues to get chuckles out of me after all of these years. The clothes, the shades, the mustaches… classic.

6. Got Your Money – Ol’ Dirty Bastard

I love the backstory on this video. Apparently, the notoriously unreliable ODB completely missed his own video shoot forcing director to Hype Williams to mix in scenes of Dolemite and shots of a previous music video. The result is the masterpiece you see below.
