The cyphers are definitely the highlight at the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards every year and it looks like this year’s edition is again going to be special.
The Awards go down tonight (Tuesday) in Miami, Florida where DJ Khaled will be doing the hosting duties. The flamboyant DJ teased a big artist being a part of the show and today, he has officially announced that none other than Eminem will be featuring in one of the cyphers. Just yesterday, it was reported that the Detroit rapper is set to release his new album on November 17 so this looks like a good opportunity to kick off the campaign.
Performers at tonight’s show include Cardi B, Flo Rida, Gucci Mane, Migos, Playboi Carti, Rick Ross, Trina, T-Pain and Yo Gotti. It has already been announced that Cardi B has won “single of the year” award. The event airs at 8 pm ET on BET.
UPDATE: The freestyle is up now. Watch it here!
