For those of you who don’t know what a cypher is, picture a circle of rappers taking turns offering up their best freestyle material. Now imagine exactly that, except with some of the rap game’s legends filling up that circle, and you have the 2010 edition of the annual BET Hip Hop Awards. Two cyphers were definitely the highlight of the big night, which saw Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, and Eminem pick up awards, among others. The first cypher saw Kanye lead out and close, with Common, Pusha T, Big Sean and Prynce CyHi filling in the middle. The second saw Yelawolf lay down a ridiculous verse, with Raekwon, Wiz Khalifa, and Bones Brigante taking turns as well. Here are the first and second video for your enjoyment.
