As we near the end of the year there are several events that everyone starts to anticipate - Christmas, New Years..... oh yeah and the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards show which has rolled around once again. Even though the show itself is usually pretty crappy overall there's one segment that everyone always looks forward to and that's the cyphers. Once again BET has brought together some of the best and most respected lyricists to showcase their skills in the cypher. After watching all 9 cyphers I would say that the Shady 2.0 Cypher featuring Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse and Eminem was the pick of the bunch (Eminem was on fire and Royce Da 5'9's "Hi Rihanna" line was classic) although I was genuinely surprised by Chris Brown who is definitely improving as a rapper and Machine Gun Kelly, Skills and B.o.B. all had classic punchlines to finish off their verses. Check out all 9 BET Hip-Hop Award 2011 cyphers after the jump or head on over to the BET website for a full run-down of the award show.
