Hip-Hop Video of the Year – 2015 The Boombox Fan Choice Awards
Hip-hop music videos were a feast for the eyes in 2014. One of the most eye-grabbing and record-breaking was Nicki Minaj's 'Anaconda.' The sexy visual was chock-full o' butts, with the rapper's bodacious derriere taking center stage. The effort quite honestly broke the internet by earning the most YouTube views in a 24-hour period with 19.6 million.
Iggy Azalea, another rapper known for her famous backside, showed off her curves in 'Fancy.' Inspired by the cult classic film 'Clueless,' the video brought '90s nostalgia to a whole new generation.
Action Bronson was inspired by the past for his 'Easy Rider' effort. Always the comedian, the Queens rapper took to his motorcycle in this adventure based upon ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.' The video featured a bar fight, Native American wisdom and a cool bandana. Joey Bada$$' 'Christ Conscious' and Flatbush Zombies' '97.92' both reminded us how much we miss the '90s with oversized jerseys and a fish-eye lens views, respectively. 2 Chainz took his love of the past one step further by dedicating his 'Freebase' to the memory of Michael Jackson. Red jackets, forever.
Speaking of fashion, A$AP Rocky came back in 2014, with his 'Multiply video. In the minimalist visual, Rocky went after high-end fashion lines like Been Trill.
Strange videos were aplenty this year. Low Pros' '100 Bottles' was a strange journey of bright lights and monsters in Japan while Childish Gambino's 'Telegraph Ave' was a vacation in paradise gone wrong. One of the weirdest visuals belonged to Flying Lotus, whose 'Never Catch Me' featured a Kendrick Lamar verse and two kids dancing from their coffins. You have to see it to believe it.
