The BET Hip Hop Awards aired last night and this year’s Cypher was once again the highlight of the show. Freestyling it old school just doesn’t get old, especially seeing the up and coming rappers representing with the most successful rappers – together like friends on a corner.
The entire Cypher is must-see-tv (which is why the video already went viral), especially our favorite segment where Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, & Reek da Villain perform with new rapper, 2 Chainz. They took turns styling over the beat to James Brown’s “The Payback”, and it was incredible! We’re also especially proud that DJ Premier rocked SOUL by Ludacris headphones in all the segments!
Other artists doing their thing in the much talked about 2011 Cyhper were: Slaughterhouse, Eminem, Skillz, Nitty Scott MC, Estelle, Meek Mill, Wale, Officer Ricky, Blind Fury, Kevin McCall, Chris Brown, Lady of Rage, Busta Rhymes, B.o.B., Yelawolf, Tech N9ne, Kendrick Lamar, Machine Gun Kelly and more.
