20_unlikely_cameos

Once upon a time, rap was the unwanted stepchild of music, mainly for its misogynist lyrics and street-life portrayal. Fast forward a few decades, and even members of mainstream Hollywood have been able to overlook rap's sometimes uncouth ways in order to get a piece of the hip-hop pie. In fact, not only are there unlikely characters attempting to spit these days (think Jimmy Fallon and the Lonely Island guys), there are also those that simply want to partake in the culture to some extent or another. With that said, XXLMag.com has compiled a list of 20 of some of the most improbable cameos in hip-hop videos. In the words of Ben Stiller in Diddy's "Bad Boy For Life" clip: shout me a holler, dun. —XXL Staff
