The BET Hip Hop Awards is known as "the one with the cyphers". I love it because it puts the spotlight on up & coming and underground rappers. Some of the most exciting MCs were in the third cypher led by Lil Mama. Check out Logic, Dee-1, Detroit Che and Troy Ave.
As we celebrate the release of "Rapper's Delight" 35 years ago, let us recognize how Hip Hop brings people together. In this rare footage we see rappers Eminem & Proof freestyle for 4 minutes of excellence.
