My favorite part of BET's annual Hip-Hop awards are the cyphers that showcase new talent and give the big names a reason to stop by and flex their muscles. This year, we saw collectives A$AP Mob and TDE go in along with a healthy list of rising stars like Action Bronson and Travi$ Scott; but in the end, all eyes, ears and tweets were on Kendrick Lamar.

It was hyped up and long-awaited. Many were anticipating big shots at Drake after a 15-second teaser that took digs at the 'Nothing Was The Same' rapper leaked prior to the show airing last night (10/15), but as it turns out the teaser was basically the only thing Drizzy-related, as Kendrick delivered by far the most impressive cypher performance of the evening.

You can check out Kendrick's verse along with his TDE crew and all of this this year's cyphers below. If you want to follow along to his lyrical prowess, you can follow along here with the fully transcribed verse courtesy of the folks over at Complex.
