After a night of serious rapping from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Mob and of course, Slaughterhouse, the cast of BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood” brought some humor to the BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher headed by comedian Kevin Hart as his rap alter ego “Chocolate Drop.“
“Yo son! You wanna see me?” kicked off J.B. Smoove, then listening some of his career highlights. “Last year, breakaway suit. New year, breakaway boots,” joined in Duane Martin who continued with, “Started from the bottom, now we on top” (in a nod to Drake’s song “Started From The Bottom”). Handsome Boris Kodjoe showed off his multilingual skills by rapping in his native German while Nelly joined the cypher wearing a Versace scarf on his head.
Nick Cannon took no prisoners when he grabbed the mic. He took several friendly shots at Kevin Hart, calling out his bird chest and dubbing him “Hersey squirt off.” Kevin then closed the cypher in typical funny form. “I’m mad! I’m glad! At the same time, feeling all sad! I miss my Dad!” he faux teared up. “Sometimes that sh– make me mad!”
Earlier in the show, several other rappers took the cypher a bit more seriously. A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg headed up the A$AP Mob cypher while Kendrick held down the T.D.E. cypher along with Black Hippy members Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and ScHoolboy Q
