We'll make this quick, yo. We recently peeped Cut Chemist's new music video for "Outro (Revisted)," which has the rapper Blackbird running like crazy through downtown Los Angeles and it set our minds zooming trying to think of other clips that got rap cats on the run. Of course, N.W.A's "100 Miles and Runnin'" quickly popped into our heads, but we also came up with a few others, some less obvious than that. In our hurry to post, we probably forgot some, so let us know what we might have missed. OK, it's time to bounce y'all. Peep these 10 music videos with rappers running, after the jump...
Beastie Boys — "Sabotage"
Starsky & Hutch never got down like this. Neither did Kojak, but that's OK. Kojak was way too cool to run.
Cappadonna — "Run"
The projects got more track meets than the local high school.
Clipse ft. Ab-Liva, Rosco P. Coldchain & Pharrell— "Hot Damn"
A nod to the opening and ending scenes of the Brazilian favela drama City of God only here the action is set in an American slum.
Cut Chemist ft. Blackbird — "Outro (Revisited)"
Blackbird flies (ha, get it?) through downtown L.A. near some of our favorite locations in Repo Man .
Ghostface Killah ft. Jadakiss & Comp — "Run"
Alright, so there's not a lot of runnin' in this one actually despite the title. The way GFK moves his arms looks like he's joggin' mad miles though.
LSG ft. LL Cool J & Busta Rhymes — "Curious"
Levert, Sweat, Gill, LL and Busta. There's five of them but they're not the Beatles. But they get chased like them.
Mase ft. Black Rob, DMX, The Lox & Puff Daddy — "24 Hours To Live"
Prison break through the swamps back when Bad Boy was runnin' thangs.
Method Man & Redman — "P.I.G.S."
Mef and Red (dressed as nuns) have a hard habit to break: they keep gettin' chased by cops.
N.W.A — "100 Miles and Runnin'"
Ninjas wit' attitude? Ninjas wit' athleticism!
Andre chased by 3000 fans.
