2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher: Asia Sparks, Bad Lucc, Astro & Problem
After taping the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards Show in Atlanta on Saturday night (Sept. 28), BET have released the first of their always anticipated cypher series. The "Digital All-Stars" cypher features Philadelphia MC Asia Sparks, Los Angeles native Bad Lucc, Brooklyn teen Astro and 'Like Whaaat' hit-maker Problem.
Because the awards show doesn't actually air for another two weeks, it's not hard to keep surprises, well, surprises. As revealed by Karen Civil, TDE, Slaughterhouse and A$AP Mob have each got their own group cypher, while Action Bronson, Lil Kim, Travi$ Scott and others feature in the remaining cyphers.
Even Kevin Hart (sorry, Chocolate Drop) steps to the mic in a special 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' showcase.
In an additional report by Rap Radar, Detroit MC Jon Connor, who stars in a cypher alongside Rapsody, Rittz, Wax and Emis Killa, apparently announces his signing to Dr. Dre's Aftermath Entertainment. The two were spotted in the studio back in July.
