Shady Records’ Slaughterhouse are reportedly heading back to the BET Hip-Hop Awards to showcase their razor-sharp emcee skills for its annual televised cypher.
According to reports, Slaughterhouse member Joe Budden broke the news.
Earlier today, Joe Budden took to Instagram a new picture of him, DJ Premire and 2 of his Slaughterhouse group members Royce Da 5’9 and Joell Ortiz. The caption he posted read, “It’s that time again ppl.. #Cypher”. By doing so, Joe basically confirmed that him and Slaughterhouse will be slated for one of the cyphers at this years BET Hip Hop Awards. These cyphers are certainly one of the most exciting parts of the show and after their performance a couple years ago, you can only imagine what the powerhouse group will bring to the table this year. Maybe another Em appearance? The 2013 BET Hip Hop Awards show will be airing on October 15th. (HHNM)
Back in 2011, locked up rapper Max B used Twitter to address Budden’s BET Cypher freestyle after being name-dropped.
“JOE BUDDEN REALLY………WAVE GANG GET HIM……,” Max tweeted October 14th.
“I AM INNOCENT SO STOP PUTTING MY NAME IN NEGATIVE SH*T….THANKS TO ALL MY FANS FOR THERE SUPPORT HOMIE GOTTA APOLOGIZE” (Max B’s Twitter)
In his freestyle, Budden referenced the crime Max is currently serving a 75 year sentence for.
When incarcerated Harlem rapper Max B learned about Joe Budden’s freestyle lyrics during last week’s BET Hip Hop Music Awards, he had a few things to say to Budden. The lines under fire were spoken during the “Shady 2.0 Cypher,” which also featured other Shady Records artists like Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse. “She’s so bad I make her hit the telly from a taxi and dead her in that Holiday Inn, learned that from Max-B,” Budden rapped. Max B then took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the mention. (BET)
Prior to receiving a response back, Royce appeared on BET’s “106 & Park” to clarify a Rihanna reference he made multiple times during his freestyle.
“Me and [Eminem] were performing at the V Festival [in England] and she was coming out to perform with us,” Royce explained. “She seen me and came up to me. Like, I’m just a Detroit guy. Everybody’s treating me like I’m famous now but I’m still regular. So she came up to me and told me that she liked one of my songs. So I felt like if she told me that again, we go together. It has to happen. So I express myself through my music and I just thought it was a line I was going to say. I didn’t know if she was going to hear it but its become this. Trending for 20 hours or whatever.” (“106 & Park”)
