BET Hip Hop Awards’ West Coast Cypher w/ DJ Quik, E-40, Kendrick Lamar, Kurupt, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit & YG (Preview)

blame it on Meka September 28, 2012

The annual BET Fish Fry In Atlanta Hip Hop Awards doesn’t air until October 9th, but this weekend everybody and their moms is down there for the taping. Here’s a brief preview of what you can expect from one of its cyphers.

  • yo

    they shouldve put crooked I in the mix wtf!

  • Q

    A Roc Nation cypher would shut dat bitch down!!!!!

  • Throwing out random cyphers now?

    ^what about one more relative like a east coast cypher?

  • Ignorant Genius

    @Q there’s only four rappers on Roc Nation… one of them is someone no one knows…

  • Q

    Da fuck you talkin bout more relative it’s not a coast vs coast thing dumbfuck

  • Q

    @I.G. Well do you know? Cuz last time I checked it was only 3 and one owns the label

  • CecilRhodez

    The West Coast Cypher looks boring to be honest. They really should showcase younger guys with one or two legends. There also should have just been a Black Hippie Cypher because everyone in that crew has bars (aside from that Q and Ab are confirmed to be in the Cypher anyways). With that said I know X will bring something, but Kenny will probably murder all of these old dudes its just sad they didnt add Nipsey, OF or any other younger guys.

  • Yoo

    banks, budden, fab, juelz, jada would be nice from the east.

  • You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.

    @Q some UK rapper called K Koke is signed to Roc Nation too. He got a song with Wale.

  • who cares

    Take Snoop and YG out and this would have been an amazing line up. Maybe put Nipsey in there instead.. goddamn

  • WAT

    No Crooked?… :/

    Xzibit and Kendrick will come hard.

  • Just Sayin

    Yo why the hell have ya’ll at 2dopeboyz haven’t posted the Kendrick Lamar Good Kid Madd City track list as much as ya’ll ride his dick?

  • mrwhatwhat
