Those who are familiar with the battle scene should be at least a little hype about the first cypher that aired for the 2014 BET Hip-Hop Awards. Smack/URL had the opening honors this year.

T-Rex, Goodz, Tsu Surf, Rain and SMACK himself handled the freestyle duties with DJ Scratch on the turntables. The spotlight didn't dull their lyrical sharpness at all. Tongue-twisters and punchlines are abound with a little bit of social commentary on the side.

This freestyle was the second of the BET Digital Cyphers. The first featured Emilio Rojas, Dillon Cooper, Andy Mineo,  Dreezy, Conceited and Retro Jace of Two-9.
