Recorded over the weekend in Miami, the 2017 edition of BET’s Hip Hop Awards is airing right now and we’ve got you covered on the most important aspect: the Cyphers.
Before the TV debut, BET released a digital cypher with an all-female line-up of Rapsody, Leikeli47, Hustle Gang’s Tokyo Jetz, and Kash Doll. We also got word Eminem is dropping a verse, too. So far he’s 2-for-2, catching cases in 2009 with Mos Def and Black Thought, and 2011 with Slaughterhouse.
We’ll be updating as each cypher is made available online. Expect appearances from *inhales* 6LACK, J.I.D, CyHi the Prynce, Cozz, Belly, Mysonne, Tee Grizzley, Axel Leon, Little Simz, Kodie Shane, Fat Joe, Ali Tomineek, Zoey Dollaz, Ball Greezy, Denzel Curry and Ski Mask the Slump God.
