Last night, Snoop Dogg hosted the BET Hip Hop Awards. To be honest, I only remember about 3 awards given the entire night, one being the I Am Hip Hop Award to Mc Lyte, which was well-deserved. Now even though I got lost in the mist of the performances and cyphers of the show, I think the show won me with the cyphers. In my opinion, I enjoyed Slaughterhouse's cypher, as well as TDE...Kendrick Lamar and his crew. But remember when I told you Kevin Hart would be in the cypher? Well let's just say I teared up laughing so hard at Kevin and his Real Husbands of Hollywood cypher. Have you seen it? Check it out as well as some of the other cypher. But for real, who else won an award? Here's Slaughterhouse's cypher HERE!
