"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 broke the record for most weeks at number-one on the US R&B chart on the issue dated January 15, 2000; as well as spending 16 weeks at number one on the Hot Rap Singles from December 4, 1999 to March 25, 2000. The song also reached number 5 on the US Hot 100 on January 15, 2000. 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.
