The BET Hip Hop awards took place this week with the award show set to air on 11 October in America and 15 October in the UK.  This year’s UK cypher line up looks like a force to be reckoned with.

Representing our side are some of the biggest MCs on the scene right now: Mz Bratt, Wretch 32, Chipmunk, Smiler, G FrSH, Bigz, Ghetts, Mic Righteous, Roxxxan, Lady Leshurr, Akala and DJ Manny Norte on the decks.

The cyphers were recorded in a secret location in London and Soul Culture were there to capture these exclusive pics.

The BET Hip Hop awards are a big deal for the genre and for the artists, video directors and producers nominated. For the UK to get a chance to showcase their talent and be involved in these cyphers, along with the Americans, is a great opportunity.

We can’t wait to see the finished versions, in the mean time check out some pictures of the cypher below.

What do you guys think of the line up? Have the right MCs been chosen or would you have wanted to see some other UK artists in there?
