Kendrick Lamar, Lil’ Kim, A$AP Rocky, & Nick Cannon Star in BET Hip Hop Awards Cyphers

Astro, Asia Sparks, Bad Lucc, and Problem

Who can forget Royce Da 5’9”’s Rihanna-inspired cypher or Talib Kweli’s controversial Frank Ocean line? The BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers are back. The network has revealed the lineup for this year’s show.

Kendrick Lamar leads the TDE cypher, which includes ScHoolBoy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and the newest member, Isaiah Rashad.

A$AP Rocky returns with his A$AP Mob crew including A$AP Ferg, while Lil’ Kim busts bars alongside her protégée Tiffany Foxx, Action Bronson, and Travi$ Scott.

Nick Cannon, Nelly, Boris Kodjoe, and Kevin Hart aka Chocolate Drop spit bars and bring laughs in the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” cypher.

Following their 2011 appearance in the Shady 2.0 cypher, Slaughterhouse is back with Royce, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, and Crooked I.

The cyphers will air during the BET Hip Hop Awards ’13 on Oct. 15 at 8 p.m.

BET has posted the first one starring “Digital All-Stars” including Brooklyn’s Astro, Compton’s Problem, Philly’s Asia Sparks, and Watts’ Bad Lucc.

Watch them rock the mic with some help from DJ Premier.

    the hate for other artists makes people fake like they really like lil kim, watch her do terrible like she has been prone to do for the past half decade, these cyphers used to be the only good thing about the show. this lineup looks weak

    Poor Lil’Kim. 203974 years in the game and she has nothing to show for herself besides that SHARED Grammy. Not even a #1 album. :D

    ImMadAsHell Reply:

    @HasBeenSlayer,

    POOR Nicki!!! In her prime the only female out & still flopped. Kim must be laughing at her, while looking at her double platinum plaque from her 2nd cd NK.

    @ImMadAsHell, Nicki the only rap bitch on the Forbes list and #4 at that so she definitely has something to show for and not an album that went double platinum 6 years after released lolz

    LMFAOOOOO I am dying at the Icky Fans. Really?, Point blank Lil Kim is the Queen of Rap and a legend so the word irrelevant does not apply here. That’s a title that will never ever be taken from her.
