i love wiz and his movement but after his flub with sway and then this recycled verse from How Fly dude needs to figure something out… forcing that verse into this was obvious and lazy… at least spit material that people haven’t heard before.
GOOD music clearly stole the show, but how cool must it have felt for Cube & Rev Run?
where was Freddie Gibbs?
Rev Run came with it. I don’t even know what that Ice Cube shit was…
But the top five were Big Sean, Royce, Yelawolf, Pusha T and whoever that dude Bones Brigante was.
Iono. BET was hard pressed to out-do last yrs cypher. Without going back and watching any of them (cause thats how real cyphers are) Bones had the best verse. And I agree, Diamond was God-awful. There were a lot of luke warmers. The Cube and Run set was a great idea but the West won that one.
Cyhi Da Prynce: “I’m blowing loud, check the decibels.”
How many of those rappers referenced Montana Fisbourne? Niggas need to be more original with their punchlines. Wiz Khalifa also failed me by recycling his verse from The Checkpoint. I needa start checking for Zawcain because that homie was dropping knowledge in his verse.
Overall good cypher and Run + Kids > Cube + Kids
Diamond’s flow could use a bit of Massengill. Performance was a little dry
And TC, you out yo’ cotton pickin mind, if you don’t believe my man Diggy came out the champ on that one. Especially with that Nicki Minaj line. And being 16. psshhh please.
This need not be stated, but
’08 cypher > ’10 cypher
G.O.O.D. had the best set for sure. I honestly hate it when people call Kanye a genius, however that performance was pretty legendary.
Why was Run the only nigga with a microphone?
first group: dope yela took it from bones. scratch that tied. im going to look for his mixtape after
second group: it was bumped up for royce to spike it and that he did. tyga was trash diamond was uninterested kuniva can do better and royce was at his best
group 3: skipped
“I…recognize game like the Espys/ Cold to myself, I say God bless me”
“Oh! Thats yo girl?/ She feeling on my whoa there/ Right next to a couple boaters/ And she tryna motorboat her…”
Common, Big Sean and G.O.O.D Music murdered this!
Too many Montana Fishburne references from everybody else though.
Diamond would of did a better job of bending over infront of the camera. Whiz takes an L and BET should apologize for trying to shame jojo.
I didn’t know any one other than Em could rhyme from D12 and Kuniva did not help me change my mind. And don’t anyone go saying Proof was nice; he may of did a lot for Detroit hip hop none of it was done with rhyme skills.
Royce killed it, I was impressed with Zarcawin(I know I am not spelling his name right) but he was spitting. Matter of fact Reef, Mickey, and homey were the second best cypher as a whole behind the Good Music collective. Yelawolf did a great job as well. Farnsworth needs to practice holding the umbrella, cause his freestyle was horrible.
good music stole it. big sean and prynce were damn dope. does cyhi have a mixtape or something? if so gotta cop. am i the only one that imagined it raining fire while kanye was spitting? for someone who so successful that guy sure rhymes like he aint had a meal in years. gotta love it

This right here.
Shit, that cypher made me go back & DL Mickey’s latest tape.
I’ve been sleeping on dude.
for someone who so successful that guy sure rhymes like he aint had a meal in years. gotta love it
That’s the thing with Kanye.
Through all the extra shit, you know at the end of the day, dude loves the music.
And isn’t that what it should be about?
BET needs to do a better job audio syncing cuz in the G.O.O.D music Cypher, the audio was behind the ENTIRE time.
@Grime Cyhi has like three mixtapes. What’s the DEC been missing 1 & 2, and Prynce of Jacks. His fourth one, Royal Flush, drops tomorrow (supposedly)
why did diggy get the most love? wtf. o yea it is bet
Nah fam. The only one nice in that line up was Fab. Jada only had like a line or two.
G.O.O.D. came off doper than everyone else because B.E.T. allowed each rapper to rap longer than in any of the other cyphers.
If all the other MC’s got as many bars to work with as Kanye’s camp, the conversation would be completely different.
While my hate for BET is close to Huey Freeman levels i do love those Award Show Cyphers…G.O.O.D Music is good music they stay killin it, LAWS,Royce, Tyga, and Mr. Bently went off too…I was also thoroughly surprised by the Simmons boys and Ice Cube sons…
Matt does have a point.
I thought Kanye was just gonna get the intro, but when he started rapping after Common, I knew the fix was in lol.
But fuck it, why wouldn’t I wanna see all of those cats get the space needed to make an impression?
It’s G.O.O.D. Music!
Yo Mickey is nice; eventhough he is so afraid of Ice Water now he only drinks Hot water lol!!! He is talented, I got to look up that Zarcawin(first learn how to properly spell his name) see what ifany music he has out.
yall kno Rev Run recycled his verse too right? LOL
I don’t see how you can deny Fonzworth Bentley here even if you been hating him up to now. He did his thing.
“The first Bad Boy that went G.O.O.D., never left the hood, I lift up hoods”
G.O.O.D. Music RoseWood too of course, not sure why Bentley wasn’t apart of that
Diamond went hard….keep up
I thought Bentley went hard too…he’s unorthodox but he aight . That Colours shit he had with Pimp C will forever ride.
That Colours shit he had with Pimp C will forever ride.
Yup. It sure will.
You forgetting Juelz. He did his thang. The only reason I’m not comparing this year’s to the other, is because they had SIX this year.SIX!,compared to the usual 3. So you know something incredible is gonna happen. And now that I rememeber, 09 cypher > all the others. True shit. Em, Krs-One, Joey. It was the best. Matter fact, fuck that. This will all just be opinions and it can’t be proven. Now that I think of it ’07 was fire as well. I don’t know, this is just an opinion. Nawww, fuck that again!, since there were six this year, it loses points. You don’t like that judgement? Well fuck you! haha!
that Bones cat killed it.
Yella did too
Rae is always nice
Kuniva did his thing…
i was impressed.
Royce killed it…
that chick…man…she could get backshots all day with that ass
Diggy with that Nikki Minaj line…
shit had me laughin.
Run can still rhyme…
JoJo is ass
Reek won his cipher…
People are hating on Kuniva when he had one of the best lines of the cypher. I lost it when he said, “We the pack of N****z Mel Gibson was talkin bout.” WHAT!?
everybody in the GOOD music cipher was on point.
Fonzworth is entertaining
my nigga kuniva said: im da only nigga fly frm da no fly zone…
my nigga big said: im detroits angel shit i even got red wings…
ALL CAPS 4 DETROIT
wit tht said da best performances went 2 yela, rae, (its) mickey, diggy, nickel, n BIG! ye went n on tht last verse but sean murdered da whole situation…(i may b a tad bit biasd)
o lest i 4get about PUSHA! he came ultra hard 2.
its G.O.O.D. music bitch nobody fuckin wit it!
Call me bias, but Big Sean just FUCKED THAT UP.
Got damn. Super impressed…
Big Sean was impressive! Wiz should just not ever freestyle, if you can even call it that, lot of people jumping on the Yela bandwagon after his cipher and performance w/ Big Boi. Was expecting something more memorable from Vado but all I remember is that Nicki Minaj line from Diggy. Shit had me laughing.
@They said 7 tracks.
Last years was the best cypher so far. It single handed launched Niki M career overnight. Mos, Black Thought and Eminem toe tagged a set. There’s no comparison.
Big Sean, CyHi Da Pyrnce, Yelawolf Zarcain….future stars of hip hop!
Why did Bones need his belt? What’s that about?
yela killed it.. vado was nice.. and the good music camp..
its a shame kanyes intro was the only thing that sounded like a freeeestyle tho
goddamn that chevrolet cruze ad gets old quick
Big Sean, Kanye and Common killed their verses.
oh shit….BET….way to surpise me…Reychesta!!!! damn…..dude a beast with the rhymes in Spanish. haha…never thought that would ever happen.
G.O.O.D Music folks killed it…Royce body bagged his verse too. All the cyphers to me were pretty dope for the most part actually.
Sorry.. YelaWolf MURDERED it.
where was kid cudi at lol bum ass
Ninjas (like me) are sleeping on cyhi…i dont even care if he wrote it, that shit was hot…
umm first of all i’m a wiz fan, but not a STAN like many internet “Self Procliamed” TAYLORS….if you go on a national stage knowing damn well you cant freestyle, like he has admitted to, why would you hurt yourself like that. During a cypher I’m looking for true hip-hop artist. Khalifa man came more off as fad for teen agers experimenting with weed and rap!
c’mon son! do better my nig.
