Undoubtedly the part of the annual BET Hip Hop Awards that hip-hop heads prefer: the cyphers. And thankfully you didn’t have to sit through the entire award show in order to watch every single cypher from the show as BET has graciously made the videos available to watch online. There was a total of six cyphers this year, ranging from Wiz Khalifa’s Taylor Gang to Papoose to Kevin Gates and Loaded Lux to Snoop’s Army with Murda Mook to Vic Mensa. We’ve conveniently posted each cypher for you to watch after the jump. Enjoy.
The second BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher is here. This one here features noted battle rappers T-Rex, Goodz, Tsu Smurf, & Rain 910. All four deliver fire bars. But which one was the best? That’s for you to decide. Check out the video after the jump.
Truth be told, I know a few of these rap vets personally and still haven’t heard verses that match these wits. Quelle Chris shines on this low-key appearance, and Ras Kass smoothly injects himself in the Greatest Freestyler conversation yet again. Clip after the jump.
Some young upstarts and a true blue vet graced the MTV stage. Here is the video of the freestylish result.
Q says a lot of vague things about Kendrick not going at Drake in the verse, and then starts nervously fidgeting when asked to elaborate. That verse was going at Drake but…it must stink to have to talk about K. Dot in every interview for his album. The Control Effect, everyone!
Impromptu freestyle session breaks out with A$AP Rocky rapping alongside Kosha Dillz and Matisyahu on the beatbox. Never underestimate this art form.
The New Camp Clik is back in effect for freestyle demonstrations. CJ Fly, Dessy Hinds, Nyck Caution, T’Nah Apex, A La $ole, Dyemond Lewis, Swank Master Raw, Dirty Sanchez, Jab and Joey Bada$$ stepped out of a time machine to give an honorary session to the Old Heads they clearly respect.
Hopsin, Jarren Benton, Dizzy Wright and SwizZz take it back to the essence in this cypher. The Funk Volume team goes in over the classic LOX posse cut “None Of Y’all Better” produced by the one and only DJ Premier.
