The 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards made it’s return tonight, and it was hosted by the king of social media, DJ Khaled. While the awards are always entertaining to see, it is the hip hop cyphers that have remained the highlight segments over the years.
While DJ Premier and DJ Drama handled the boards, new talent, and legendary ones took part in BET’s renowned segment, including Brooklyn’s new spitters Young M.A, Harlem’s own Dave East, and Jidenna. The return of State Property, was an amazing highlight. Seeing Beanie Sigel reunited with his crew is surely a sight to behold. You may remember Ms. Jade from her days with Timbaland’s defunct label Beat Club, and Lil Wayne lets off an amazing tangent of his own, joined by Kevin Hart’s alter ego, Chocolate Droppa. Watch all the cyphers below.
