    what up guys. both of those videos are dope.

    cipher #2, best to worst =
    joell (killed it with the "bet" couplet)
    flo- even though i only understood her dialect like 1/3 of the time, at least she didnt rhyme "people" with "people" 3 times, which brings me to
    ras kas
    cassidy- really? all you can do is rhyme about diamonds and a gun? shtoops.

    cipher #1
    bakardi slang indeed
    tay- did his thing, had slick lines, but couldnt touch kardinals flow.
    stat quo- i was actually kinda impressed. nothing he has recorded has impressed me much, and he couldnt really handle this beat too well, but he had some nice lines and he was ciphering with two beasts.

    hmm...missed the awards. shocked to see Dizzee in that mix. Nice to see BET showing the non-American rappers some love.

    I got a soft spot for ciphers...this was quite pleasing to the eye. and ear.

    I agree. Ill always have a special place for ciphers. I think I'm gonna get a few friends (stimuli. Crooked I. Torae. Etc) for a special surprise soon.

    2dopeboyz are on the rise.
