Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, & Nelly Preview ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ Cypher

Real Husbands Cypher

“The Real Husbands of Hollywood” flex their rap skills while bringing the laughs in a cypher for the BET Hip Hop Awards 2013. The cast of BET’s hit show including Nick Cannon, Kevin Hart, Nelly, and Boris Kodjoe trade bars and jokes in a preview from the show.

Nick wilds out on his castmate and even twerks during his verse. “Kevin Hart, definition of a jerk-off/ Fuck Chocolate Drop, your name Hershey Squirt-Off/ Bunch of mitches/ Watch me get this work off/ Fuck rapping, ya’ll should have had a twerk off,” he raps.

A shirtless Kevin gets emotional while thinking about his absent father, and Nelly calls himself the “realest husband in Hollywood, no wife at all.”

The full cypher will air on Oct. 15, along with cyphers from Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, Lil’ Kim, Slaughterhouse, Action Bronson, and more.
