    Shady 2.0 destroyed all the other cyphers. These guy would give young money a run for their money! Damn eminem switch up personalities while he was rapping, that was so D O P E! I looked up the lyrics to the cypher and there were so many good and clever verses. Shady records is coming back and that cypher was the best.

    jigga wouldn’t murder shit (especially in 2011) maybe reasonable doubt jay. nas should be in it though he would kill it no doubt. that guy eminem is uh…pretty dope. joe budden royce crooked I (Yelawolf was cool)

    [Reply]

  47. >U Mad.

    i feel certain people in this Cypher,it,s fire.

    [Reply]

  48. wtf

    shady 2.o killed it

    [Reply]

  49. gco

    I wonder why Lil wayne and young money never did a cypher? I bet they got asked already. Oh wait, yeah, they can’t rap except rhyming ‘nigga with nigga’ so obviously they can’t remember a simple freestyle verse.

    @gco, it’s just true.

    @gco, i think they already did one thats why shady 2.0 was put together

  51. latonya

    Who could forget machine gun kellys verse IT WAS PURE FIRE!! i don’t think we need to talk about the rnb rapper i mean he does it for fun. He’s a geunine lover of hiphop and so thats thats but Royce 5’9 was the funniest like i enjoyed it but Marshall detroit killed it. It was the best the most memorable. Everybody else was you know on point.

  54. YES.

    i don’t f*ck with shady 2.0 they just assembled that shit after YM came together. EMINEM IS OVERRATED. Nitty Scott is hot. Lecrae, Busta, TechN9ne, & B.O.B is dope. Maybach Music Group prewriting their sh*t – lame. yelawolf is okay…

    …case closed.

    [Reply]

    Latonya Reply:

    @YES., NOOOO! wait , yes, they might’ve put together the shady cypher because of the YM one but its a great idea they’re all different teams. I was blown away. Eminem is never overrated more like Underestimated that cypher that HE DID was dope. everything else you said is on point

    [Reply]

  55. Ej

    People know all BET Cyphers are rehearsed but the guy that shocked me is Kevin McCall-__metaphors damn!!!__-, errone else did what you would expect from them!

    [Reply]

  56. priince

    busta rhymes, blind fury, MMG,B.O.B, Slaughter house, yelawolf ,ace hood…. they were dope

    [Reply]

  57. WN

    Lol, y’all wanna talk about Shady 2.0, and Eminem? Lol, they didn’t do anything but take up more time. Lecrae killed it, and if he would have wrote more and rapped as long as a lot of people did it would have been even worse than it already is. No fire can compare to that holy spirit fire.

    [Reply]

  58. Latonya

    Royce 5’9 was referencing the second “hi rihanna” that story about her and nicki living together, the third “hi riahnna” was rihanna saying she likes chris browns music and everybody thought they was back together

    [Reply]

  59. agenda

    Not hating I’m just stating a fact rick ross can’t rap. You can tell in that cypher who’s a true mcee and and who’s not. Man but on the real they had some real good lyrical spitters in that bunch. Big ups 2 primo hooking that up.

    @Spida, just by asking that question you’re about start building buzz for joe’s next album cause thats all that was “a verse to talk about” thats always the goal of raps but you know beef gets buzz and buzz helps sale albums

    [Reply]

  61. Angie

    Besides Shady 2.0, Machine Gun Kelly was the best. He went in! Eminem never ceases to amaze me. He has the ability to say things in a way that no one else would ever think of. Crooked I impressed me, as well as Tech N9ne.

    [Reply]

  62. saio

    Shady 2.0 murder it!!!!!!!!!!
    also busta, luda, breezy, tyga, b.o.b, tech 9ine, big krit cyphers was dope
