BET Awards In A Nutshell

Posted by on October 12, 2011

For those of you who tuned in to the 2011 Hip-Hop Awards last night on BET know the cyphers took the limelight, and more specially, the Shady 2.0 Boys.  I unfortunately didn’t see the awards live last night but from the videos I’ve watched today and the buzz I’ve seen floating around Web 2.0, Shady delivered the entré while most other parties involved only supplied the appetizers.  Here’s what BET had to say about Shady 2.0…

“Yelawolf + Slaughterhouse + Shady = Boom! Yela speed raps, Joe Budden sabotages the throne, Crooked I mean mugs his way through his set, Joell Ortiz gets on through affirmative action, Royce Da 5’9” hollas at Rihanna and Eminem, well, is Eminen. Fiyah!”

Aside from Shady, I was also impressed by the “Indie Meets Mainstream” crowd, including Big K.R.I.T., Tech N9ne, MGK, Kendrick Lamar (who I’m real high on lately), & lastly B.o.B.

“And we are in the game, like the cypher was a scrimmage, So everybody gossip and go tell a friend and a pigeon, that this white boy just bodied black entertainment television, #LaceUp”- Machine Gun Kelly

In addition to the cyphers, Chris Brown won best video, Weezy won best lyricist (cough cough) and best live performer (fair), Nicki won MVP, Lex Luger won best producer (even though all his beats sound the same), World Star won best hip-hop site (this is my new goal), J. Cole won best mixtape with FNL, Khaled won best useless shouter DJ,  and Wiz won rookie of the year.  Nothing out of the ordinary coming from a mainstream source.  You can view all the winners HERE.
