The BET Hip Hip Awards was a trending topic on Twitter and Facebook from 8 to 10PM last night as the awards show payed tribute to Hip Hop icon, LL Cool J and featured performances by the old school overweight lover Heavy D, DMX, Rick Ross, Meek Mills, Young Jeezy, T.I. and many others. However, the most anticipated segments of the night is always the cyphers. Everyone from Eminem to Chris Brown to Busta Rhymes were apart of the cypher and they definitely represented but the most highly anticipated of the night was Holy Hip artist Lecrae. We all know Lecrae got skills but he showed and proved with the best of the best and pulled no punches as he kept it all the way hood and all the way holy! Check out his no holds barred verse below:
You probably watching like man I never heard of him I murder him the nerve of him rocking with Pre Pre Premier that’s so absurd of him, wait until he spit a couple verbs in them if your really wanna hate, wait he got the word with him I heard him holla, Jesus the notorious, NO, the most glorious homie so leborious borin us with these choruses horrible latter chorus just killin us call the coroner unimpressive aint flooring us! Hey this what happen when Hip Hop let the saints in, Tailored to snatch the mic Swiftly like Ye did, but them awards can’t follow you to the grave, you livin for them whips and chains then you a slave Uh, prayer don’t stop time it kills hours, they lookin for a savior but we killed ours, still he ROSE like Derrick no Bull, you wanna meet the Lord come holla I got pull!
Now for anyone who knows anything about Hip Hop and metaphors, you know that Lecrae can stand toe to toe with any Hip Hop artist out there and his flow and lyrics are BANANAS!! Job well done Lecrae. You represented the kingdom well and hopefully opened the door for many other Holy Hip artists to rock the cypher in years to come. BET, take note!
