One of the highlights at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards was "The Cypher." It's a segment of the show that many of its audience look forward to.
The Cypher is consisted of several different cyphers of MC's, spitting that raw fire and blazing the mic. The focal point of the cyphers are the spittas': deliverance, flow, articulation of voice (vocal characteristics), content of lyrics and lyrical structure, wordplay, metaphors and punchlines, rhythm consistency to the instrumentals; and more.
Setting off The Cypher was DJ Premier on the turntables.
The Cypher began with BlocBoy JB, YBN Cordae,Tobe Nwigwhe and Duckwrth.
