Well, I think it’s time for me to admit that I was wrong. I’m not going to be completely disappointed by the cyphers at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards, which take place Oct. 9. From what I can see by the full lineup of rappers, we should have something pretty entertaining watch and you can expect a full report by us after they air.
Peep the full lineup below—I’ve underlined the MCs I’m most intrigued by—and be sure to check out the West Coast cypher preview here. I just wish they lumped everyone together so we know who will be rapping together. [via]
