[Big Daddy Kane courtesy Wikimedia Commons]"Rap prime minister - some say sinister." Part two of twenty rap videos from 1988 - because there were just too many worthy inclusions to limit it to part one. "I'm different, so don't compare to me another/cause they can't hang - word to the mother."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Limiting this to JUST 20 songs was incredibly tough, so I threw on a few live performances as a bonus. If there's a song/video you think I forgot about, feel free to say so to me, although odds are I'll reply and say "It was on the list!" I even strongly considered whether or not BDP should be on the list twice, but I couldn't deny how damn cool it was to me to see Damon Wayans and KRS-One in a movie/video together.
