Each year when the BET Hip Hop Awards roll around fans look forward to the cyphers. Seeing which MC has the wittier rhymes and best punch lines is as often much fun as watching the award show itself.
BET has revealed some of the players that will participate in the nine cyphers this year.
The list includes Snoop Dogg, DMX, Eve, A$AP Rocky, T.I., B.o.B, Cassidy, Mystikal and others.
The network will show six of the cyphers during the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards show, which airs October 9th on BET. The other three cyphers will be shown exclusively on BET.com.
As always DJ Premier will man the turntables.
