Hip Hop/R&B videos featuring cast members from HBO's The Wire

I always noticed certain dudes from The Wire popping up in a lot of videos, and always thought about trying to look up all of them, but I really didn't expect to find quite so many.

The 3rd season of The Wire is out on DVD today, August 8th, and tonight the cast and crew of the show will be appearing at The Sound Garden at 7p.m. The 4th season begins on September 20th.

You could make a case for mentioning Method Man, who acted in videos by Alicia Keys and Beanie Sigel for songs that he didn't perform on after appearing on The Wire, but that's a bit of a stretch.
