1) EMINEM - "The Real Slim Shady/The Way I Am" September 7, 2000
NUMBER 1! No doubt about it.
This was when Eminem was at the peak. His 2000 VMA performance really showed what a superstar he is. This isn't a typical Drake, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar performance. This was Tupac level.
Eminem wasn't just 'good' at the 2000 VMAs, he was dominant in this performance. He took over the award show. Eminem literally owned the VMAs, at this night. That's why it's my number one VMA hip-hop performance.
