MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video

The MTV Video Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Video was first given out at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. The award, according to MTV, was originally intended for hip-hop-inspired songs, not necessarily actual hip-hop music videos (which were instead honored by "Best Rap Video"). This explains the recognition of non-hip-hop songs such as "Thong Song" and "I'm Real (Remix)". This award was not given out in 2007, as the VMAs were revamped and most original categories were eliminated; however, Best Hip-Hop Video was reinstated in 2008. By then, though, the rules had relatively changed, as R&B and rap videos also became eligible for nominations in this category since the awards for Best Rap Video and Best R&B Video were not brought back. OutKast, Missy Elliott, Eminem and Drake are the biggest winners in this category, each having won twice. Kanye West owns the most nominations, having received a total of nine between 2004 and 2014. Missy Elliott was the first female rapper to win this category.
