Why does Beyonce, Drake or Katy Perry land in the VMA mix?
Best Hip-Hop Video
B.o.B f/ Hayley Williams, "Airplanes"
Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem, "Forever"
Eminem, "Not Afraid"
Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz, "On To The Next One"
Kid Cudi f/ MGMT & Ratatat, "Pursuit Of Happiness"
"On to the Next One" is one of the more visually captivating vids in Hov's canon, but it has nothing on the starpower of "Forever." It's the easiest way to put statues into the hands of two of Q1/Q2's biggest names in hip-hop, one who is incarcerated but revered and one who is about to shake-up the 2010 holiday shopping season. We'll let you figure out who's who. Hype Williams has done better, but it's a better showing than the other Williams in this race -- Hayley -- whose clip with B.o.B. is pretty but forgettable.
Kid Cudi's name is already dropping off lips and, if our predictions are right, Eminem will have a statue to himself already.
