There were so many ill rap videos in the 00's it would be a monumental task to try and name the top 50, but that's just what the good folks over at Complex have done.
G-Unit CEO 50 Cent had two videos that were ranked in the top 25. Coming in at No. 10 is "Window Shopper." Directed by Benny Boom, the song was featured on the 2005 Get Rich or Die Tryin' movie soundtrack.
What's funny about the "Window Shopper" video is that not once does 50 Cent have to "window shop" at all during it. He and Ma$e go on a shopping spree, eating $400 cheeseburgers, while friends (and G-Unit signees) like Young Buck, Mobb Deep and Olivia all partake in living in the lap of luxury set in Monaco on the French Riviera. Must be nice.
The No. 24 Best Rap Video of the 00's as determined by Complex is "Wanksta" off of 50 Cent's classic 2003 debut album, Get Rich or Die Tryin'. The clip was directed by Jessy Terrero.
Everybody knows a "Wanksta," and the one in 50 Cent's video is portrayed perfectly. Going to the car dealer and pretending to buy (but never quite closing the deal), acting hard on the boulevard, you know the drill. The only cool part about the wanksta in this video is that he has his own toy doll. He gets accidental awesome points for that.
Do you think 50 deserved to have more videos on the list. Were "Wanksta" and "Window Shopper" ranked high enough?
