Eminem, Yelawolf & Slaughterhouse to Appear at BET Hip Hop Awards Cipher

Yesterday (September 7) it was revealed that Lil Wayne was nominated 19 times at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards and today, has learned that Shady 2.0 will have their own segment to show off their lyrical chops.

Like G.O.O.D. music reps, Kanye West, Pusha T, Common, Big Sean and Cyhi the Prynce who rapped for the cameras last year, this go-round Eminem, Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse will have their own cipher.

XXL just got off the phone with Yela, who was in Detroit to film the cipher, to find out how it went.

“Well, Eminem is Eminem,” he said with a chuckle. “I’m defintely with a crew of fuckin’ champions, lyrically, fuckin’ unreal, man.”

Asked if he was nervous picking up the mic after Em, Yela said, “You’re not going to outrap Marshall — it’s not going to fuckin’ happen. You have to stand there and create your own world.”

The 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards are set to air on the network on October 11 at 8 p.m. EST. —Elan Mancini with reporting by Tzvi Twersky
