The Hip Hop Awards Cyphers have proven to not only save some veteran careers (because some vets had been dried up before they stepped to the mic (i.e. Joe Budden in 2011's Cypher)), but also allow newcomers to show the world what they are capable of (i.e. Big Sean in 2010's G.O.O.D. Music Cypher). This year is no different, as anticipation has been building up to see exactly who will be blessing the mic in the annual cyphers. BET has a good mix of veterans to rookies this year, with legends like Erick Sermon, Black Thought from The Roots, and Redman showing the world they still got it. The rookies are just as interesting and deserving, with Casey Veggies, Tink, Vince Staples, and Raury making a name for themselves. Not to mention the winner of the BET Cypher Contest that was held over the summer will be there to show us why he won. We can't forget about the wild card artists that tend to shock us all; this year's feature of actor/composer/playwright/lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda and Albe Back who played "Brooklyn" in the movie ATL back in 2006. Nevertheless, this year's cypher is sure to be one of the books! Check out the fill list of artists below.
