Ok. So its not where Hip Hop lives, but it does visit from time to time.  I’m not boycotting B.E.T. by any means.  I just don’t watch it.  I’ve come to find out it’s not for me.  I do, however, have to salute Skillz (Mad Skillz from Va) for going off in the cypher.  Mad creativity and just plain talent was evident in his bars.  This makes the culture fun again.  Watching this made me feel like it was cool to be on the roof with a goose down vest on and no heat.  Rhyming in a circle just for the “oooh”‘s and “ahhhh”‘s.  C’mon yall.  it’s Skillz.

Skillz – BET Awards Cypher

Do you think he killed the cypher?  Would you like to see more hip hop like this on T.V.?  Leave a comment and let us know.
