The Cypher

Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 6:35 AM By: Ice Cube

What up fam?
Last night I stood on a roof in Brooklyn wit my 2 sons (OMG & Doughboy) and the "King of Rock" Rev. Run wit his 2 sons (Diggy & Jo Jo) and we did the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher. We killed it. Me and Run had 16 bars and our boys had 8 bars a piece. We had DJ Premier on the wheels and it was a beautiful night.
Ya'll don't understand. I was a straight fan last night. I grew up on Run-DMC and having a chance to do a cypher wit the legendary DJ Run was a bucket list moment for ya' boy. It was all love of course and we talked about a line he said in '83 that set it all off, "If you say you heard my rhymes we're gonna have to fight, Cause I just made the mothafuckas up last night!" Now that's hip-hop. Just wanted to share that wit ya'll. On my way back to Cali...
Keep It Gangsta,
Ice Cube

    Wow! That's amazing to see the son's of two of the Greatest M.C's alive, together with there father's. This Would be a great advertisement promoting Fatherhood, and spending time with your children!8) This is another side of Hip Hop... The best Part of Hip Hop! The people need to see a lot more of these images in Hip Hop, so Hip Hop can be used as the weapon of enlightenment it was meant to be.
