The best part of the BET Hip Hop Awards are the annual cyphers. The 2014 lineup included Taylor Gang, Papoose and Remy Ma, David Banner, Andy Mineo, G-Eazy and others. This year’s roster includes rising rap stars Tink and Vince Staples to veterans rhymers like Redman, Doug E. Fresh and Black Thought.

Among the cyphers being presented are a Def Squad freestyle featuring Erick Sermon, Keith Murray and Redman, who reportedly bodied the session. Other rhymers on tap include Casey Veggies, King Mez, Charles Hamilton and Raury, while Tink, Nicole Paris and Renee Elise Goldsberry will represent for the ladies. All of the MCs will be backed by DJ Scratch, Questlove and DJ Premier on the turntables.
