The Notorious B.I.G. "One More Chance" - For the video to this Ready to Die single, Biggie threw a huge party. The line was out the door, and things were poppin’ once you did get inside, with plenty of dancing going on. Big was mostly kickin’ it on the stairs, though. (Photo: Bad Boy)

Snoop Dogg "Gin and Juice" - In the video for his second single, “Gin and Juice,” Snoop was blessed with an empty house after his parents hit the road for the night. They warned against having a party, but of course he threw a huge one. The lyrics and visuals match up pretty well for this classic. (Photo: Death Row)

Jay Z "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" - Hov invites plenty of female friends over in the video for “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).” What starts as just a soiree with Jay, a few friends and those ladies spills over into something a bit more chaotic as the video progresses. (Photo: Roc-a-Fella)

Sean Paul "Get Busy"" - Just about everyone is ready to “Get Busy” on the dance floor in the video for Sean Paul’s single of that name. The singer never steps out from behind the mic, instead serving as the master of ceremonies for everyone’s good times. (Photo: Atlantic Records)

J-Kwon "Tipsy" - For his breakout smash, J-Kwon suggested that “everybody in the club get tipsy.” The video for the single, however, takes place not at a club, but at a house with paryty goers bursting at the seams. (Photo: Arista Records)

Meek Mill Featuring Young Chris "House Party" - This one’s pretty self-explanatory. For his mixtape single, Meek Mill decides to welcome everybody to his house party, party. At times, the setting looks a bit more like a club, but that’s probably just because it went down in a ridiculous mansion. (Photo: WMG)

The Beastie Boys "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)" - What was at first a tame shindig turns into something epic when the Beastie Boys kick down the door and bring their uncapped energy, as well as more than a few friends, in the “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)” video.

Terror Squad "Lean Back" - In the video for their No. 1 hit “Lean Back,” Fat Joe and Remy Ma were at a house party that was no joke — there were even metal detectors. Outside, Kevin Hart unsuccessfully tries to keep Lil Jon and a deep crew from getting in. As for Joe and Remy? They’re not dancing. Just pulling up their pants, doing the rockaway and leaning back. (Photo: Universal)

Brandy "Full Moon" - In the video for the titular single from her 2002 album, Brandy spots a dude through a telescope and then decides to head to the party where he’s at. Eventually, she heads to the crib and links up with the fella.

Diddy "Bad Boys for Life" - Diddy upset his neighbor with his antics in the video for "Bad Boys for Life." That neighbor, by the way, just happened to be actor Ben Stiller. That didn't stop Puff from throwing a wild get together — and Shaq even came along for the antics. (Photo: Bad Boy)
