Undoubtedly one of the best elements of the annual BET Hip Hop awards is the pairing of different emcees as part of their The Cyphers series. Forgoing the usual format, this year sees the 16-bar assault arranged by camp – including T.I.’s Grand Hustle and DMX’s Ruff Ryders – while other notable collections include “The West Coast” (Snoop, DJ Quik, E40, Xzibit, Kurupt, Kendrick Lamar, YG), “The Man with the Iron Fists” (A$AP Rocky, Angel Haze, Joey BadA$$, Childish Gambino and Driiky Graham), “The Raw” (Mac Miller, Mystikal, ScHoolboy Q, Hopsin and Sprite Hot 16 Winner Jay Bird the Purdi Boi) and “The True School” (Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Ab Soul and Sarkodie). Leave your thoughts in the comment section on what unit delivered the best and which emcee dropped the most memorable verse.
