The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards made its return on Tuesday (Oct. 4), hosted by DJ Khaled. Taped back in September, the highlight of this year’s show like every year was the cyphers. Backed by DJ Premier, DJ Scratch and DJ Drama, spitters from the past and present displayed their lyrical skills for viewers. State Property (Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Peedi Crakk, Omillio Sparks, Neef Buck), Dave East, Young M.A, Jidenna, dead prez, Nick Grant, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Don Q, Consequence and members of New Edition were some of the artists to hit the battle circle.
The most anticipated moment came in the final cypher, a back-and-forth matchup between Lil’ Wayne and Chocolate Droppa aka comedian/actor Kevin Hart with DJ Drama on the 1s and 2s.
Check out all the cyphers below.
