Rapsody, Leikeli47, Kash Doll and Tokyo Jetz Spit for 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher
The 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards went down this past weekend (Oct. 6), and while the show doesn't air until tomorrow night (Oct. 10), we're getting previews on what to expect. The network is rolling out some of the cyphers that took place, including an all-female freestyle battle between Rapsody, Leikeli47, Kash Doll and Tokyo Jetz.
BET deemed the cypher as "Hip Hop's fire femcees" while incorporating the rising talent, as DJ Premier spins the instrumental from Diddy's latest record, "Whatcha Gon' Do" with Rick Ross and Biggie Smalls. Leikeli47 kicks things off in a heavy fur coat, along with her signature bandana mask to cover her face, spitting some heavy bars before Tokyo Jetz takes over to show off her own rhyming talent.
While Kash Doll proves her high lyrical abilities that are a standout in the cypher, Rapsody definitely takes the spotlight with her insightful bars that even namedrop other female MCs in the game.
"Reflect on what's the bigger picture/Servicing my ego, or empowering sisters," she rhymes. "Yea, so I'm screaming 'black girls rock.' Shout out Cardi B, M.A, Young Minaj."
The 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards also features other cyphers that incorporate other big names, including Fat Joe, Belly, Tee Grizzley, J.I.D, Kodie Shane, XXXTentacion, Ski Mask The Slump God and more.
Be sure to tune into the awards ceremony tomorrow at 8 p.m. EST on BET to catch all the action hosted by DJ Khaled.
