2009 Hip Hop Awards: Cypher

The cypher has always been my favorite part of the BET Hip Hop Awards, it shows the raw talent of some of the hottest signed, unsigned, and underground rappers in the game. Here are the clips of the 2009 BET Cypher from tonight's show.

First up: Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal, & Joe Budden in the cypher.

Nicki Minaj is my new favorite female rapper. There will be more posts about her soon.

Cypher #2 featuring KRS One, Wale, Nipsey Hussle, & Gsan

Gsan is a rapper from Tanzania, hip hop is so global. I love it.

But...BET saved the best for last.Mos Def, Eminem, & Black Thought

Ya'll know how I feel about Eminem. He is a freaking monster! Sweet.

The Cypher shows that real hip hop is still alive!

CHRIS BROWN "I Can Transform Ya"

I'm so excited to see a new video and hear new music from him. Chris also announced via Twitter that his album will be released December 15. [the day after my birthday, and which I will be accepting all gifts ;-)] Also Chris Brown will also be doing a fan appreciation tour starting November 14 in Houston.


In Case You Missed It...

Sunday night rapper Nas was on CNN discussing the recent outbreak of violence in Chicago and his "Open Letter to Young Warriors".

Of course, they start the interview off with violent & negative song lyrics from on of his songs trying to make it seem as though Nas is a hypocrite. But as he speaks he proves them wrong. Great interview and kudos to Nas.

Usher Signed Those 'Papers'

Usher's new single 'Papers' was released today. If you loved Confessions ,you will love this song. If his album is anything like this song, it is going to be another classic. Check it out:

I wonder how Tameka feels? Nah, I could careless, I'm not a fan of hers. I wish Usher & Chilli would get back together.
