As the main deejay behind BET's Hip Hop Awards Cypher, DJ Premier has seen plenty emcees kick rhymes for the series. During a recent interview with The Combat Jack ShowPremier revealed insight about the cyphers, the emcees and his concerns about Justin Bieber not writing his own raps. 
During the conversation, Premier was asked who the top verse came from when Eminem, Black Thought and Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) linked up.
"I'm not even being politically correct," Premier said. "I loved everybody's verses but Black Thought bodied that. Bodied it. Hands down. Eminem got busy on the Shady cypher when they did it themselves, with Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf and him? That was a fun shoot." 
The Eminem, Yasiin Bey and Black Thought cypher can be viewed below, followed by the Shady cypher.
