True hip-hop heads will always tune into the BET Awards for the rap cyphers and most years they live up to the hype. That held true this year (Oct 4) as a few up and coming artists really brought their A-game to the DJ Khaled hosted show. The pre-taped show was capped off with a hilarious cypher battle between Kevin “Chocolate Droppa” Hart and Lil Wayne — all in good fun.
Who took home the best cypher award in your mind as DJ Premier and DJ Drama served up the cold beats?
