Who needs the BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers when you got Eminem and his Shady Records brethren dropping epic videos like this? No one, that’s who. In addition to Em, you’ll see Slaughterhouse’s four members (Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, and Royce Da 5’9″) and Yelawolf spit beyond-fiery a cappella verses. Here’s the thing: Normally, I’d be all, “C’mon where’s a beat for this? Did they really need to do this a cappella? And why aren’t they all together (aside from Em and Royce)?”
But, like, if there’s anyone I want to see to this type of cypher, it’s these guys. Yeah, there are some borderline-corny punchlines and whatnot, but that’s part of the fun.
You can watch the cypher below. Em’s upcoming Shady XV compilation drops Nov. 24.
