High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! 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, and Eminem are the biggest winners in this category, each having won twice. Kanye West, however, is definitely the biggest nominee in it, having received a total of six nominations between 2004 and 2011. Nicki Minaj is the first woman to win this category in six years.
