All the BET Hip Hop Award Cyphers: Who Was The Best?

Published on October 13th, 2011 by Astramskas, David | 299 views

The following are all of the Cyphers from the lastest BET Hip Hop Awards.  Personally, I wasn’t that impressed with most of them and that’s a knock on the artists or their skills but more of a music preference of mine.  I’m not into most rappers that came out in the past decade.  No coincidence the two I liked the most were Busta & Em with the rest of Shady’s Slaugtherhouse in 3rd.   I’m not putting down people for liking any of the other artists either but I would like to know who you thought stood out the most.

I also posted above an old Cypher from the 90s with a few of my favorite rappers.  Enjoy and let me know who below stood out like Big Pun.
