Watch: David Banner, King Los, Snow Tha Product, Vic Mensa in 2014 BET Hip-hop Awards Cypher

Not all cyphers were created equal at this year’s BET Hip-hop Awards but they were still some of the best parts of the show, which aired Tuesday, October 14th.

That said, Naughty by Nature‘s Treach brought us an impressive set featuring bars from Mississippi vet David Banner, Maryland rapper King Los, Cali femcee Snow Tha Product, and Chicago artist Vic Mensa.

In the cypher Vic Mensa scrutinized President Obama‘s activities during unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, while Banner asked, “How you proud to sell dope to your own folks house, nigga?! / I meant it how it sounds / But where the white rappers when they mowed Mike Brown down? Nowhere to be found.”
