The 2016 BET Hip-Hop Awards made its return on Tuesday (Oct. 4), hosted by DJ Khaled. Taped back in September, the highlight of this year’s show like every year was the cyphers.

State Property, Dave East, Young M.A, Jidenna, Dead Prez, Nick Grant, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Don Q, and New Edition were some of the artists to hit the battle circle.
