Whose BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher Was Better?

In my world last night, the Chilean miner rescue and watching instant streaming movies on Netflix ranked a tad bit exponentially higher than watching BET's Hip Hop Awards. Thanks to the internet--no, I did not DVR it--I can relive what many of you got to experience the first time around last night. Much has been made of the cyphers of Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music label artists which is below and the Father and Son cypher, including Ice Cube and Rev Run who both held their own as well as Diggy and, bless his heart, older brother Jojo. There were a total of five cyphers including some rappers who I was familiar with and some who I had never heard of. My personal favorite is the cypher including Wiz Khalifa, Raekwon, Yelawolf and Bones Brigante but that's mainly because I prefer my hip hop of a more grimy nature. Take a peek at the rest of the cyphers and let us know your favorite one in the comments. [H/T: BS]

Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, CyHi Da Prynce and Common

Wiz Khalifa, Raekwon, Yelawolf and Bones Brigante

Tyga, Kuniva (D12), Diamond and Royce Da 5'9

OMG, Doughboy and Ice Cube, and Diggy, JoJo and Rev Run

Reek Da Villian, Zawcain and Mickey Factz

  1. Reek Da Villian did his bit, that's all I'm saying.

  2. I'd say its a toss up between the Kanye clan and Ice Cube, Rev Run and sons

  3. Busta's cypher was easily the best. The others were wack. I havent seen a decent cypher since Papoose and nem a few years back.....

  4. I don't watch the BET hip-hop awards, I think I saw parts of it twice but I liked the year when they had international artists in the cypher.

  5. I agree ill mami. That's my favorite cypher too! Bones brig and Yelawolf were dope! I also appreciated Cube'n fam and Rev Run n'fam as well carry on tradition. Would love to see an all female one with Lyte, Bahamadia, Jean Grae, Invincible, and Rapsody.

  6. You have good taste ill Mami, that cypher was by far the best. The other ones had weak spots. There werent many more enjoyable moments in what may have been the worst award show that I have ever seen. I cant get those two hours back.

  7. You were right in that JoJo....well let's just say it was a underwhelming moment. Diggy tore it up, nice flow and all. The funniest line was given by Kanye and I am not a fan but his, " Too many Urkels on your team that's why your Wins low" had me cracking up. Chef is just on another level. These are the new cats. Someone...anyone...please bring me back to Hip Hop!

  8. Busta was Hot, then I'd go with the Kanye crew.
