BET Cyphers 2012: T.I., Snoop, Kendrick Lamar, Mystikal & Many More Rap — Videos
If the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards are the Super Bowl, then the cyphers are the halftime show, and this year's pairings offered up a quite a few surprises.
With DJ Premier manning the wheels, T.I. captained his Grand Hustle crew through choppy waters, while the West Coast was represented by the likes of Snoop Lion, E-40 and Kendrick Lamar and Ruff Ryders reunited, featuring Cassidy, Eve and DMX.
The rest of the groups were more varied, however. One featured up-and-comers like A$AP Rocky and Joey Bada$$ alongside Childish Gambino and RZA, while another cypher included Mac Miller, Schoolboy Q, Hopsin, Mystikal and a Sprite contest winner.
