In preparation for Shady XV compilation album due out Nov. 24, Em assembled his team for 18 minutes of freestyle glory. Each lyricist introduced themselves and their respective city and let go some of the best 16s hip-hop has heard in quite sometimes. Just think BET Hip-Hop Awards Cyphers, times 10!

Crooked I kicked things off in a Long Beach, California car garage, while Joe Budden spit an emotional verse from the top a New York City Bridge. Cameras filmed Yelawolf in the backwoods of Mississippi, while Ortiz enjoyed sweeping views of the city from his native Brooklyn.
