The BET Hip Hop Awards never fails to gives us something to talk about. From the Queen B Lil Kim hopping in on a cypher to Rick Ross with his shirt off (as usual) there is never a dull moment.
The most talked about moment that I know EVERY blogger and news outlet will be writing about is #KendricksVerse. Hands down Kendrick had the best verse in the cyphers last night (I think, but we’ll get to that). Even though he took shots at Champagne Papi, no one can deny this mans talent. Lyrically he is one of the best in the game right now.
I love the competitive nature that Kendrick has and he is not afraid to say whatever the hell he wants to say. Let’s just hope these back and forth disses stay as friendly competition.
Overall, Slaughterhouse takes the cake in having THE best cypher last night. The only person from Slaughterhouse I have ever really heard of is Joe Budden and I am utterly ashamed of myself. These guys did not mess around!
For those who are in the dark like I was, Slaughterhouse is a group consisting of rappers Crooked I, Joell Ortiz, Royce da 5’9″, and the ever so talented (and handsome) Joe Budden. The group is currently signed to Shady Records – which makes sense after hearing how lyrically talented all 4 of them are.
Slaughterhouse has stepped on the BET Hip Hop Awards stage before in 2011 during the Shady 2.0 Cypher – how did I ever forget about that?
The guy that stood out the most to me was Crooked I. Flow? CHECK! Lyrical substance? CHECK! This man is the real deal. I honestly am not sure if Crooked I or Kendrick had the best cypher verse.
“I want to walk into every BET Cypher and murder every rapper, spit, and call it ‘Hip Hop Population Control.'”
“I’m so street look both ways before you cross me.”
You be the judge! Check out both cyphers and let me know what you think:
