The best part of the BET Hip Hop Awards are the cyphers. As a matter of fact, if I worked at BET, I’d figure out a way to just announce the winners electronically and limit the show itself to the cyphers.
This year hip-hop’s seniors and freshman took turns going line for line with a freestyle. Artists like Big K.R.I.T., 2Chainz, Dom Kennedy, Stalley, Yelawolf, and more made an appearance. The best cypher hands down was the Shady 2.0 cypher, and you can watch them all after the break….
