Remember last year when G.O.O.D. Music reps (Kanye, Pusha T, Big Sean and Cyhi Da Prynce) had their own little segment at the 2010 BET Cypher to showcase their skill? well this year, it’s Shady 2.0. The event was shot in Detroit recently.
This was revealed by XXL yesterday, who learned the news from Yelawolf.
Who had this to say regarding the experience:
Well, Eminem is Eminem. I’m defintely with a crew of fucking champions, lyrically, fucking unreal, man.
He was then asked if he was nervous picking up the mic after Em, to which he replied:
You’re not going to outrap Marshall, it’s not going to fucking happen. You have to stand there and create your own world.
Sounds like Em really shut it down. But, when it comes to freestyle raps, he always does.
I’m excited to hear whether Em will have a new and developed style, or whether it will be a continuation and slight evolution of what we heard on Recovery and Hell: The Sequel.
I’d say it’s more likely to be the latter, but either way – this type of environment is always best for him to really nail and emphasize what he does.
It’s not just Em I’m excited to hear though, I can’t wait to see what Yela and Slaughterhouse have done. Yela can be especially creative and tricky with his flows and structure, so this should be interesting. Especially with them all trying to out-do each other, this should really push the bar up high.
Think of how lyrical every one of them is too, I can’t wait.
The BET Hip Hop Awards is on October 11. So look out for the cypher then.
