BET Cyphers

21 Oct

In this weeks blog, I’m  going to talk about the cyphers that took place at the 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards last week. Overall, I felt like everybody did a good job. Even the underground artist that people might not know about. Out of all the groups, I would say my favorites would be TDE, ASAP Mob, and The Real husbands of hollywood. Watch the following cyphers below and let me know who you think did the best.

TDE Cypher

TDE

My personal favorite.  I think everybody in the group did good. In an interview with Sway, after just four bars of rapping, SchoolBoy Q said thats when he started freestyling. It’s rare to have rappers actually freestyle in their cyphers or to freestyle period now a days. Most artist memorize their verse or they recite a verse from one of their songs. Another highlight of this cypher was of course Kendrick Lamar. In my opinion Kendrick had the best verse between every cypher performed. There has also been rumors that Kendrick had a few lines dissing Drake in his verse.

A$AP MOB

ASAP Mob was another group that i enjoyed. If you’re an ASAP fan, you knew that ASAP Rocky would have the best verse in his crew. Second best I would have to say was ASAP Ferg. Ferg is already coming up as an artist, this cypher proved that he will continue to be a top contender.

The Real Husbands Of Hollywood

Last but not least! The Real Husbands Of Hollywood was by far the funniest cypher ever shown on BET. Everybody from Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, and yes, even to JB Smoove killed their verse. The talk of this cypher would be Kevin Hart. ” Buck Buck Bink Bink that’s a gun homie.”  Was one of the funniest lines in his verse. You can’t listen to this cypher without laughing,

Kanye speaks on creativity

A few weeks ago Kanye had a four part interview with BBC Zane Lowe. He spoke on his life, his views on the world, how people view him, and most importantly, creativity and how to move society forward. I honestly loved every part of the interview. Here is Part 2 where he speaks on his creativity and how society tries to limit his ideas.
