We may have to wait ’til next Tuesday, Oct. 9, for the full crop of 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards cyphers to air, but to hold us over, we’re treated to three of the nine freestyle sessions early.
The Warm-Up Cypher Volume One features Brianna Perry, Relly, Fame, The Kid Daytona, K’La and Tito Lopez, while the second volume boasts Core Masson, Kosha Dillz and Boy Jones (Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son), and sees RZA temporarily take over hosting duties from DJ Premier. There’s also a rather novelty Youngster cypher, which is tag-teamed by Lil Niqo, Lil Wah and Young Money MC-slash-real life Rugrats character, Lil Chuckee.
You can watch the three cyphers below by scrolling through the belt. Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Rocky, Snoop Lion and Talib Kweli are just some of the names participating in the remaining freestyles.
