5 Greatest Female Rap Videos

Honorable Mention: Foxy Brown - Big Bad Mama

Okay so no one voted for this, but I'd be remiss not to include it.  This is the best Cinderella concept we've seen in a rap video (sorry, not sorry to Nicki's  "Moment for Life").  The song serves as the soundtrack for Bill Bellamy's How to Be a Player and stars many of the cast members.

5. Salt n Pepa - "Shoop" 

Here I go, here I go, here I go.  It's no wonder our parents loved them.  They blessed us with full out choreo every visual and, plus, a little misandry never hurt a soul.

Eve ft. Gwen Stefani - "Let Me Blow Ya Mind"

I think we honestly forget how cool Eve was as the first lady of Ruff Ryders.  Queen Gwen graced us with the vocals on the hook and their style was unmatched— even when harmonizing in the back of a cop car.  Paw print Eve forever.

3. Angie Martinez, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, Lefteye - "Ladies Night"

Must be Angie on the mic.  Seeing all our favorite female rappers team up with our favorite DJ was iconic and extremely uplifting.

2. Missy Elliott ft. Da Brat - "Sock It 2 Me"

Missy Elliott might have the most consistently good music videos of all time— Work It, One Minute Man, The Rain.  She's a melting pot of creativity, spewing audible and visual goodness wherever she goes.  In "Sock It 2 Me," she teams up with Da Brat for a video game that I'm sure you'd have to keep blowing the cartridge for from playing it so much.

1. Trina - "Da Baddest B*tch"

Trina's debut was everything the rap industry needed and, again, a little misandry is good for you.  She drops gems in the song and let's you know not to play around with the baddest, or your house may end up like Warren Sapp's.

..... And of course the goat of all music videos.  Would this have even been fair?
