The 2015 BET Cyphers: Def Squad Reunited (Video)(Video)


The headline says it all; like its own byline. Did you see the Cyphers this year? Always the best part of the BET Hip-Hop Awards. We expect a ‘wow’ moment or two from the Awards’ broadcast; and a Cypher is a good bet for a source. Well, there was [at least] a BIG one in this year’s – Erick Sermon, Keith Murray and Redman spitting with DJ Scratch taking the Preemo spot (see what we did there?) for the set. Def Squad comes back to life for the night! Good to see.

Click the pic above to start with the Squad. Got the rest of this year’s Cyphers linked after the jump.

Snoop Dogg x Doug E. Fresh – “Lodi Dodi” (Live at The Roots Picnic) [Video]

At the 7th Annual Roots Picnic, Snoop and Doug E. Fresh do the damn thing on their rendition of Doug E. and Slick Rick’s “Lodi Dodi” live. Now, Snoop Dogg had a slow-flow styled version on his debut LP “Doggystyle.” But with Fresh dropping beat box heat live… you KNOW Snoop had to hold down his end with more of an homage to Rick The Ruler. Respect! Great performance.

(Catch a recap of the 2014 Roots Picnic after the jump.)

Doug E. Fresh Sons Ready To ‘Square Off’ In Making Their Own Mark (Video)

Doug E. Fresh’s sons Dayquan “Slim” & Solomon “Trips” Davis have been pushing their music for a few years now & are continuing to make their own mark & not rest on their pops legacy. A song that I used to play on the radio show a few times was the ‘Left Right’ joint featuring their father, but it’s good that they’re having him fall back a little. It’s easy to see why they’ve collaborated alot with Cory Gunz who’s famous father is Peter Gunz. Even in Cory Gunz’s reality show there were issues where he had to get his father to fall back a little too. Check out this video where they talk about their first album, Money, Moet & Memories, and their father Doug E. Fresh’s influence on their music.
