The 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards aired last night (Oct. 16th). Hosted by actor and standup comedian, DeRay Davis, the show featured performances from Cardi B., Lil Baby, T.I., A$AP Rocky, Lil Duval, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti, and many more! Aside from the main stage performances of the night, the star-studded event also featured cyphers performed by various big name and underground artists alike.
The cyphers are one of the most anticipated aspects of the awards. Because the actually filming isn’t done live, by the time the show airs most of the surprises of the night have already been revealed. The cyphers are one of the variables of the BET Hip Hop Awards that we can never predict but always appreciate.
This year, BET left out a lot of the big names in rap and decided to focus mainly on up and coming stars. Among the artists who performed this year’s cyphers were Erykah Badu, Vic Mensa, G Herbo, YBN Cordae, Casanova, Taylor Bennett, Reason, Sharaya G, and many more.
