2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards (Cyphers)

The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards happened last night and, as usual, they had a set of cyphers. These cyphers gave us some dope bars from TDE, A$AP Mob, and Slaughterhouse. They also gave us the return of Lil Kim, dope bars from Rapsody, Jon Connor, Italian rapper Emis Killa, the dominant lyricism of Slaughterhouse and more. But, what everyone is discussing is Kendrick’s verse. He did to this cypher what Eminem did in that Shady 2.0 cypher in 2011: completely murdered any other participant. He delivered some lines that could have been shots at Drake or Papoose, (we’ll never know), but most importantly, he took another step closer toward that top spot. It was basically “Control 2.0” haha. Check it all out below. Enjoy.
