The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards made its return last night. The annual award show was filmed in Atlanta on September 17, but after much editing, the award show aired last night (October 4).
One of the highlights has always been the hip-hop cyphers, and last night’s cyphers were no exception.
Sponsored by Sprite and backed by DJ Premier, DJ Drama, and DJ Scratch, this year’s cyphers featured veterans like Lil Wayne, Philly’s State Property (Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Omillio Sparks, Peedi Crakk), dead prez, members of New Edition, and newcomers like Young M.A, Dave East, Nick Grant, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Jidenna, and so many more.
