I didn’t watch the BET Hip Hop awards… and the reason I didn’t will be kept to myself. I heard about parts of it, but the only part I really wanted to know about was The Cypher. I heard about it… and investigated for myself… and as you can see the official Cypher video isn’t posted. But what I did hear before I heard the official Cypher, was this verteran MC from Virginia doing what I feel needs to be done in hip hop: utilizing the internet to take Hip Hop back to it’s roots. He wasn’t pleased about something, he put it in bars. They didn’t give him a voice or a platform, he created his own… and what do you know, he kicked the door so hard, they opened it and gave him his invite.
