[Hip-Hop] BET Hip-Hop Awards 2013: The Cyphers

The BET Hip-Hop Awards finally aired earlier tonight, and while I personally am not a huge fan of the show, there’s one segment that I eagerly anticipate every year: The Cyphers. The Cyphers are really where the event truly shines, bringing together some of the most talented emcees in the game, underground and mainstream. This year’s lineup is certainly a formidable one, featuring the likes of TDE, A$AP MobSlaughterhouseAction BronsonTravi$ ScottRittzJon Connor, and even some jokes courtesy of J.B. SmooveKevin Hart, and Nick Cannon. Check out the cyphers below, and let us know who you think went in the hardest (we’re guessing the popular answer will be Kendrick Lamar).

[Hip-Hop] A$AP Mob – Bath Salt ft. Flatbush Zombies (prod. P On The Boards)

The A$AP crew joins forces with the Flatbush Zombies over some hard production to bring us Bath Salt, a certified slap. The Flatbush Zombies‘ Meechy Darko and Zombie Juice destroy this track with their dark,  high-energy flows. A$AP Ant matches the Zombies’ grime and the talented leader of the mob, A$AP Rocky, anchors the track with some of his best rhymes to date. This cut will be featured on the A$AP Mob compilation album, which will be shortly followed by Rocky’s debut album LongLiveA$AP, set to drop on September 11th. This will most definitely help kick off my weekend.
