One highlight of every BET Hip Hop Award show’s are the Cypher’s before the commercial breaks. As usual, they mesh together new, old, and random MC’s into a Cypher as they all go in.

Stay tuned as I add the Cyphers throughout the night, and continue reading to peep the “freestyle” sessions.

Rock The Bells 2008!

22 07 2008

The lineup has been out for a minute, but I’m posting this for those who missed it. This has gotta be the hottest show since the Glow In The Dark Tour brought to you by Kanye and co. Nas and A Tribe Called Quest alone is worth it, but when you throw in Ghost & Rae, Red & Meth, Rakim, and a slew of others, you got one hell of a show. Rock the Bells will take place August 9th at the Glen Helen Pavilion in San Bernadino (and yes, tickets are still on sale). I’ll be there, where will you be?
