“Rap” Songs: Where the Instrumentals are Better without Lyrics

I'm very sure I'm not the only one who thinks or said this: Rap music today, sucks. All except the instrumentals behind them. Now-now, not all of them are horrible, degrading, repetitive, time wasting piles of trash--some of them have a good stances.

With only the instrumentals, I always like the idea of making it cross-genre. You know, remixes/covers. Most of them I'd like to hear a little metal/rock/whatever you wish to call it. Even some dub. With that being said, sometimes even a different, "music style(?)" would also change my view on the lyrics. 
Better Without the Lyrics

First, the ones are, well, not that appealing (to me, anyway). Not all are rap:

8: Gucci Mane - Work Ya Wrist
(from Ice Attack)

7: Nelly ft. T-Pain & Akon - Move That Body

6: Far East Movement - Like A G6

5: Yung Joc - I Know You See It

4: Ron Browz - Jumping Out The Window

3: Jason Derulo - Watcha Say

2: Rihanna ft. Young Jeezy - Hard
(the rock instru. is better)

and ..
1: 50 Cent - Down On Me

I have to point out though. Numbers 6, and 1 make it all worth it when watching these videos:

What's your thoughts? Oh, and follow me on Hype Machine if you want, too!
