Eminem & the Shady 2.0 Camp Explain Their 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher

Last night the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards aired which included their popular "Cypher" video series. With a little help from DJ Premier and the classic "Tried by 12" beat; Yelawolf, Slaughterhouse and EMINEM put out one of the best (if not THE best) entries into the BET cypher series to date. All other cyphers in this year's BET Hip Hop Awards didn't even come close to this one, in fact the only verse I've liked so far other than the Shady camp's is Busta Rhymes. I truly hope that Shady Records' signing of Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf brings lyricism back to the forefront of Hip Hop. I'm talking TRUE lyricism, not what's been passing for "lyrics" lately by the so-called "greatest rappers" of today. Stop sounding like you're falling asleep or you're not trying, FUCK swag. This is how it's done boys and girls. "Hi Rihanna!"

[*update - the video was taken down by VIACOM so instead I posted this "behind the scenes" video, click the link below to watch the original cypher video and tune in to BET this Friday 8pm Central Time to see the encore of the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards]
