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,

    "Run DMC & Jam Master Jay!!" You never know how good an MC is until you hear them on a cypher, to be able to hold an audience with no prefabricated music formulas & hooks. It's just straight beats and rhyme skills. Sometimes I'd rather hear that than some of the BS people put out...
