bet cyphers

The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards went down in Atlanta yesterday, and we’ve already got the first cypher (starring Asia Sparks, Bad Lucc, Problem and Astro) as well as the rest of the lineup. TDE (including new addition Isaiah Rashad), A$AP Mob and Slaughterhouse (who stole the show back in 2011) each boast their own group cypher, while Action Bronson, Travi$ Scott, Lil Kim, Rapsody and Jon Connor also take turns on the mic. There’s even a lyrical showdown between Real Husbands of Hollywood stars, lead by Kevin Hart, aka Chocolate Drop.

According to Karen Civil, Kendrick Lamar picks up where his “Control” verse left off, while Detroit MC Jon Connor uses his 16 to announce his signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label. The 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards air Tuesday, October 15 at 8 p.m. EST.
