"Hot Boyz" is the title of a number-one Hip hop/R&B single by rapper Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott featuring Lil' Mo. The remix version of the song was an urban hit featuring Nas, Eve, and Q-Tip. The remix spent an all time world record at number-one on the US R&B chart on December 28, 1999 (after reaching the Top 3 on November 16, 1999), 16 weeks at number one on the Hot Rap Singles from November 16, 1999 to March 7, 2000, and reached number 5 on the US Hot 100 on December 28, 1999 (after debuting in the Top 40 on November 16). In the UK, the song became the biggest hit from the Da Real World album; it peaked at #18, being Missy's sixth top 40 and fourth top 20 solo success.
Hype Williams directed the music video from October 13-14, 1999, which features Elliott singing and rapping in a huge arena, intercut with clips of dancers and strobe lights. Williams also used a vast amount of pyrotechnics, primarily used in the fast cuts to important figures in the video. Cameos include Mary J. Blige, Ginuwine, and Timbaland. Nas and Eve were featured, but Q-Tip did not appear in the video. His section was replaced with Elliott's rap verse from the original version.
