Mysonne Used His Turn In The Spotlight To Shed Light In An Underrated BET Cypher (Video)
Hip-Hop news and culture move fast, and it’s easy to miss significant developments. Every week, Ambrosia For Heads takes a look back at the LAST 7 days. This video series, hosted by Justin “The Company Man” Hunte examines the current issues with a colorful rundown of the what, where, and why. While the LAST 7 focus is always rooted in and around Hip-Hop, some of the same lifestyle and relevant social events that appear on AFH will be included.
Tuesday night’s (October 10) broadcast of the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards made the news in a huge way, courtesy of Eminem’s latest politically-minded freestyle, a solo cypher. However, besides that blockbuster moment, there were several standout cypher verses from a cross-section of styles, geography, and messages in Rap music. Meanwhile, as some important present-day MCs demonstrated elite rhyming, 2 Live Crew’s Uncle Luke was presented with the “I Am Hip Hop Award.” The Miami, Florida-based impresario asserted his place as the true pioneer of Rap music in the south, reminding all watching of the legal and cultural roadblocks he bulldozed.
Stay tuned for more LAST 7 episodes, coming each Tuesday.
