“Their Music Videos Were F**king Dope”

“Their Music Videos Were F**king Dope”

[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name their Top 5 rappers of all-time. To make things tricky, we’ve created a “Hall of Fame” of emcees (see right) who are universally respected and therefore may not be mentioned. After K. Rose unveiled her top picks, “Funny or Die’s” Director Brothers Josh and Ryan dish out their fave five.]

p-cee-lo.jpgGoodie Mob. They really shaped who I am. They were like the first group I ended up listening to that didn’t come from someplace else. I found them at a swap meet and I put in their album into my tape deck and loved it. I didn’t take it out for like three years. -Ryan

p-outkast.jpgOutKast. OutKast is like the first group that I saw perform and actually went and drove my car to go and see them. They were little kids too. I think I was 16 and they were like, 20. -Ryan

p-snoop-dogg.jpgSnoop Dogg. I’ll never forget him turning into a doberman in that music video. -Josh

p-dr-dre.jpgDr. Dre. Snoop and Dr. Dre, they’re like the first hip-hop videos I really watched and stuck to. I would just have those videos on repeat. Forever. They don’t make videos like those anymore. -Josh

The Beastie BoysBeastie Boys. MCA was like an art director and music video director. Their music videos were f*cking dope. I’m a big fan of the punk rock, so whenever they would pick up instruments and play, I loved it. I always couldn’t believe what they did musically and then they’d turn around and make the best music videos as well? That was crazy. -Josh
