The BET Awards represent everything terrible in hip-hop, that is nearly a fact. But every year they put out their cypher series, which does tap into some rather talented MCs. Among that list is a fabulous cypher brought to us by Shady Records, including Eminem, Slaughterhouse, and Yelawolf. It isn’t a usual occurrence to see all of these heavyweights in one room spitting freestyles, so we can at least thank BET for that. Another cypher worth noting is one between some newcomers in the game like Big K.R.I.T., Machine Gun Kelly, Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B. and veteran Tech N9ne. There were some other performances, which included Ludacris, Estelle, Tyga, and more, but let’s just try and pretend that never happened.
Hit the skip to check out the cyphers that are worth your precious time.
