Eminem Joins Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf For 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher

The Shady 2.0 crew spits alongside DJ Premier.

Eminem joined his Shady Records brethren during the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards, joining forces with Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf to spit as part of a Cypher while DJ Premier manned the wheels of steel.

Catfish Billy was first up at bat, spitting in double-time rhyme over the languid beat. Up next came Joe Budden, Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5’9, who threw it to his Bad Meets Evil partner Eminem to close out the Cypher.

Watch the freestyles below.

    this cypher was the best it separated the boys from the men and prooved that there's more to rap than what they put on T.V

  • James

    This is how I see it: 1.Eminem 2.Joe Budden 3.Crooked I 4.Yelawolf 5.Royce da 5'9 6.Joell Ortiz They were all amazing but unfortunately there has to be a hierarchy... Joe Budden's had a calm and collected but versatile flow that's refreshing. Eminem gave me goosebumps. I was honestly uncertain whether I was gonna see a continuation of Recover or a return to his roots. I heard neither, but he definitely made a recovery and has returned to form. Happy Birthday Em.

  • Swordz

    Em: So... lads. The Group: Yessir! Em: Take turns in sucking my limp needle dick... (long pause) Royce: ..... Me First!!! x

  • ceej

    haha did u just say royce and crooked are overrated.. hahahahah hahahahaaaaaaaaa ur momma didnt raise u right u must be fuckin retarded

  • CHOOCHOONUKA

    YelaWolf>Eminem>Budden> Joell> With a weak ass tie between the last 2 overrated ass rappers Crooked and Royce

  • tdubwilcocks

    1. Em 2. Joe 3. Royce 4. Crooked I 5. Yelawolf 6. Joell but no doubt its hard to chose considering they are all just so incredibly talented. I think royce was just showing that he knows he's good and he can say what he wants without taking back his words, and showing that the fame he's got hasnt changed him. but Em is just takin it in stride. straight up.

  • D.Manshion

    in ma project therez nobody reppin Eminem nigga...Rick Ross & Birdman thats how we do on our grind nigga, respect our hustle patna...we handle 305 but theres nobody bumpin Slaughterhouse in his trunk ma nigga...6 sub woofers nigga best belee dat potna...on our CTS, we ride wit Gucci nigga best belee dat.

      i feel bad for u kid...you low IQ hip hop fans can keep bumpin that garbage

    • k-DizzLe

      in your project you got a bunch of stupid mother fuckers then, just a bunch of hip hop ignorant dumbfucks like yourself. Learn to type ma nigga, you dont sound cool, you sound like an illiterate english-challenged retarded motherfucker that didn't pass the 5th grade. Straight up Rick Ross and Birdman are alright in their own ways, but they cant touch Eminem or any member of Slaughterhouse on ANY day. You can bump whatever the fuck you want, but they cant hold a fucking candle to any of these cats when it comes to spittin. Sit the fuck down homeboy, after you learn some grammar, school up on real hip hop while you're at it. WESTSIDE!!

    • pistol12

      because in your "projects" you mother fuckers r too stupid to even comprehend a group like slaughterhouse, my dog can spit a verse more complex than gucci. Thats why southern rap aint hiphop either, cus yall niggers r dumbasshit and need horrible wack ass like gucci to even understand shit.

  • BC

    I wish Budden wasn't in Slaughterhouse. He doesn't rep Jersey.

  • Ozzy Salas

    I think em was subliminal mocking canibus with the first little verse he did. Crooked I, budden, Yelawolf, and Em had the best verses. Royce sounded corny as fuck with the Rihanna shit and joell just looked uncomfortable rapping

    • Anonymous

      Yeah it was him mocking Cannibus. He's done that on several occasions. As for Royce i thought it was funny but I can see where you are coming from. Joell was pretty much eh apart from a couple lines.

    • naked dave

      Royce and Joell was quality as you absolute idiot

  • DR Jam

    JoeB had the best verse, Em had the best rhymes, wordplay and delivery.

    Eminem's abilities are unmatched. Most technically gifted rapper of all time. Dude is the chosen one.

  • AlphaClassTheSeries

    Eminem is really just one of the illest MC's out. Has anyone heard his 2 disc Freestyle Mixtape that came out ten years ago, with his 9 minute freestyles with Proof, around the time that "If I Get Locked Up Tonight" came out, which is one of his best btw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsV1g1HsP2c&feature=player_embedded

  • Schweinepriester Helmut Smith

    This shit is soooooo much fun to watch for hip-hop fans. Em showin Yelawolf who the boss is haha and rappin iller than ill. Everytime I think he overdoes it, that sick bastard fits the script. Signing Slaughterhouse might give Em his emcee-credibility back, but he should avoid trying to shine brighter than the other guys. He dont need to, he is Eminem. This clip is pure fun.

  • Anonymous

    Joell fell the FUCK off, there's no denying that. He was a whole other monster on ''The Brick: Bodega Chronicles''. The last great track I've heard from him was ''Battle Cry''.

  • jordan

    1. Em (Unanimous) 2. Budden (When he was finished I doubted anyone would top him) 3. Crooked (So consistently hot) 4. Royce 5. Yela (Not a fan but he surprised me. I liked his verse not his fault everyone else killed it) 6. Joell (still best ive heard from him in a while)

  • STAN

    I just wish these guys would actually FREESTYLE their verses as opposed to showing up with their best written, hard to believe they all cant do it but who knows, maybe no one can actually FREESTYLE anymore. Still dope tho for sure

    • Anonymous

      Yes they are going to go live on a show where millions will see them and risk freestyling knowing they could screw up and so many people would see it, and also knowing that everyone else is writing their rhymes. GREAT IDEA!

    • 2da9thpwr

      No one said it was an actual FREESTYLE cypher...

    • Schweinepriester Helmut Smith

      not trying to be a smart-ass, but the oldschool definition for "freestyle" is "off top" or "from the head". "freestyle" used to be "free from topic". I guess these dudes don´t wont to "choke" on the mic with millions of fans hearing that shit.

  • BoutTime

    Got DAM. I've watched this like 6 times this week. Looks like slaughter and yela are doin for em what em did for dre 10 years ago. This shit is beautiful. Royce was tellin the truth. Success is Certain.

  • blitzlegga

    looks like Em is surrounded by monsters on the mic. its kinda fucked up he's callin it Shady 2.0. they are the upgraded version of D12 and Obie Trice. i wonda what dem niggaz got to say about that

    D-12 is dead as fuck. Fuck them. Em just need support slaughterhouse and yelawolf the way he supported 50cent back in 2003, because the only reason 50cent blew was bcos of Em. If Em does, slaughterhouse will most definitely turn into a Multi platinum selling group !

    • AlphaClassTheSeries

      Yeah, 50 definitely didn't blow up JUST because of Em. I'm from NY and his G-Unit mixtapes were rotating real heavy before he got signed. Em essential picked him up the same way he picked up Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf, seeing that they could carry a buzz on their own, and his presence just elevates that to a whole different level. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsV1g1HsP2c&feature=player_embedded

    • Sefus1

      Dude you sound like a dickriding eminem stan/ retard. The only reason %0 blew up was because of Eminem. Im not the biggest 50 fan but anybody who remebers the buzz around fifty when he first came out knows that it was ridiculous. Dude almost singlehandedly started the mixtape scene..and by the time em and dre came along he had the biggest movement in the country. And oh yeah..I think being produced by Dre and having arguably the biggest single of the past fifteen years ( In da Club) had something to do with it..Now go rinse the taste of eminems dick out your mouth

    i've been a fan of eminem since he came out but i will say this, if i had to pick between shady 2.0 and the d12 days i'd probably change my mind, cos d12 was a mix between rap and comedy, you laughed nearly every verse. on he other hand, shady 2.0 might just be the greatest gruop of lyricst to do it, there flawless with they wordplay and skill you can tell they pick out each syllable under a microscope before they finish writing they're verse. shady 2.0 much better lyricists, d12 much funnier group

      This rhyme actually comes from an Inspectah Deck (Wu Tang) verse.....So it was cold, but not original. Not trying to diss. Just shedding light.

    "Ay b, lets see (abc). You said your gonna do xyz, til you fuck around and get dropped like an E, when you add "ING". Don't put a "K" in font of that tho, when I MC. Cuz I'm not the king of this microphone booth. Its more like a phone booth, Superman in this bitch, kryptonite won't do." Tell me that aint the sickest shit you've heard in years.

      Eminem is by far the wittiest rapper to ever touch a mic. That shit is sick and crazy beyond belief.

    • LegendKiller

      Dude the first time I heard that line I had to rewind it immediately to hear it right. And then I wound up rewinding it 4 or 5 times cuz it was sick. Just amazing wordplay from Shady. Great performances from everyone but that line was sick.

  • The MH

    I slept on Yelawolf verse the first time around. His shit was sick too.

  • Anonymous

    All of them were so crazy. The best part was that none of them sounded like the other. They are all so unique. Shady FTW

  • Xander Agosta

    None of the other cyphers even came close... I'm not sure who I like the best. Em's was good. Joey really exceeded expectations, either him or Crooked were the best of the Slaughterhouse bunch. Joell I think is the weakest of the group and Royce is slightly overated. I'm not sure where I'd put Yela but he definitely did his thing... I'm gonna need to hear this a bunch more times before I render my final judgement.

  • rbgwarrior

    Blastmaster Krs One is still the dude to ACTUALLY FREESTYLE.....n e way, slaughterhouse is the shit.

    They're chemistry is on point and that means danger for a lot of rappers. They should just start dissin rappers lmao Wat they gon b able to say? They should do a white rapper cypher one year. Jus for the hell of it. Shady, YelaWolf, Machine Gun Kelly, Mac Miller, and hell you could even throw asher roth in the mix. That would be a dope cypher.

    • are you kidding?

      "No bruh im black?" then why the fuck are you suggesting an all white cypher. that's some uncle tom shit. Your clearly white. White people love white rappers. Its like the whole "look were good at it 2" but eminem already proved that.. stop trying to shove untalented assholes down our throats claiming they're the next eminem. there wont be a next eminem. all these white rappers that are getting insane marketing are trash. no one in the hood feels them and suburban kids only feel comfortable listening to them around each-other like when they say nigga and no black people are around. thats why they market yelawolf as a redneck..

    this are the kind of rappers than will never get the fuck out the hood if it wasn't for Em, royce will never have a gold album and before you talk shit like "oh yeah he from the streets, he is a real nigga" and all that shit, biggie, pac, jay and 50 were also from the hood and now they're legends, just to name a few a rapper needs to be complete, to write and perform about different topics and to different consumers

      You don't even make sense. Nevermind the fact they have all already made it. Royce wouldn't have a gold album if he wasn't talented and had the drive to suceed. Pippen wouldn't have no rins if it wasn't for Mike...does that mean he didn't belong in the NBA. Nicca don't tell us what a rapper needs to be

  • Anonymous

    hard to say but i think for the cypher it goes.. 1. Eminem (funny lines good punchlines crazy rhyme scheme) 2. Royce da 5'9 (pretty much Em on lesser scale) 3. Crooked I (lots of multis.. wasn't really saying much though) 4. Joe Budden (some decent punches and suprisingly best flow) 5. Joell Ortiz (This dude fallin off) 6. Yelawolf (Unique style and nice flow.. lyrically good but not the best for this kind of rap) Of course Em is a mainstream MC so people try to say he was the worst.. figures...

  • Ganjarelli

    Man this anonymous faggot below me don't know shit. Kendrick Lamar don't got shit on Crooked I, far as the king of the west coast go. But even with Crook on the beat, nobody came close to Em (I've listened to the shit bout a dozen times by now, just to be fair). I've got it like this. Em. Crooked. Royce. Joell. Joey. Yelawolf. I had to go back a few times to be sure, switching up Crooked, Royce & Joell's position, but the other three spots have never changed. I personally took the total amount of time each artist was actually spittin, minus all the parts that I thought were fire rather than just filler. Then, the person with the most subtracted time out of there verse is the dopest spitter. I give Yela about seven seconds of material that just blew me away. Joey like 10. Joell and his punchlines, 15. Royce had my ear for like half a minute & Crooks verse was damn near perfect. One full minute of dopeness, just not long enough to match Em with over 1 minute and 45 seconds of fire. Not the most precise way of measuring their respective skill sets amongst one another, but this is my own preference, and it must be certainly more valid than any idiot who thinks Crooked I don't kill it. Cause you'd be wrong.

    Eminem deserves nothing but huge respect for that. Not only for this cypher, but for also doing it 2 years ago with Black Thought and Mos Def. Where are Nas & Jay? They shy away from it, maybe saying it's ''beneath'' them when they're scared of being outrapped in reality.

    if you dont KNOW that this was the best cypher, then you do not KNOW rap. PERIOD. that's it. done and done, these guys better drop many albums and for those brainless goons below hating and saying shit about YM, you should/ have to realize that is pop music, not real rap, the only songs worth listening to on C4 are the interlude/ outro shit, because of the features...

  • theCool

    As far as hip hop goes, it's extremely hard to say the entire Shady label isn't a fantastic representation of it. I mean, Yelawolf is about to go Platinum when Radioactive drops. Joe Budden is a motherfuckin' beast on the mic. I've been fuckin with Crooked I for a couple years, ever since he did Sickology 101 with Tech N9ne, and Royce & Ortiz are the fuckin lifeblood of Slaughterhouse. Ortiz been spittin fire for like 6 years now and Royce murdered on Bad Meets Evil. I'm not even gonna describe Eminem because that's obvious. This Cypher was excellent.

      Okay... Now, let's get one thing straight, and I'm talking to EVERY type of hip hop fan on here. If you like the Lil Waynes, Gucci Manes, Rick Rosses etc over the Shadys, Juice Crews, BDPs etc, then that's fine. Why should we judge who you like better? YMCMB probably has a bigger influence in YaDig's LIFE (not taste of music, LIFE) than the Shady camp. But DON'T E V E R DISRESPECT THE CLASSIC MC's! EVER! Only in time will you see how ignorant and VH1-ish you sound. Hopefully that will be soon.

      Probably because it's the BET Hip hop Awards. Now maybe you could see if Pitchfork would have one for those lames you mentioned. The only three ppl that I would like to hear are Deshay and Casey who aren't even OF anymore and Earl. Everybody else is lame and should stick to making beats.

There’s an old-school freestyle that’s basically rhymes that you’ve written that may not have anything to do with any subject or that goes all over the place. Then there’s freestyle where you come off the top of the head"

    WOW! This is what the fuck Im talking about about. This is what we need to hear more of right here. Pure Hip Hop! Royce, Joey, Joell, Crooked, Yelawolf and Eminem, DAMN! these motherfuckers went insane on that shit. That beat just became a murder victim. I bet all the other little crews were just nervous and shook as fuck listening to how the Shady dream team just ripped that shit to pieces. Gay ass Officer Ricky and his crew of frauds and Wayne and his crew of homos were probably like "fuck man, how we gon compete with that? We cant rap like that!" If you listen to what they were saying you'll notice that they were taking shots at everyone and just pretty much coming out and saying "we're the best emcees/best crew and no one can out rhyme us". Em pretty much said that calling him the King is below him because he is Superman while Budden said that he'll sabotage the throne and Royce talking about getting at who ever calls themselves the best rapper alive. Shady Records is back and theyre even more lyrically fit than they were before. This is bad news for other rap crews. Slaughterhouse lit a fire under EM's ass and you can tell cause hes spittin and operating on all cylinders again. Now watch all the YMCMB gay fanboys and the MMG fraud loving queers make comments because deep down they now feel threatened that there favorite gay bubblegum rappers are food to real emcees.

    • Anonymous

      Nervous much you little bitch? Yeah rappers always brag and boast when theyre kicking bars but the difference between this crew saying it and the faggot ass crews that you support is that the Shady crew can actually really outrhyme any other crew out there thats the difference you homosexual fuckboy!

      i know its hard to believe, but em was freestyling. His eyes were searching for thoughts. his slight pauses. eminem doesn't pause. example: What about dre. He has great breath control.

      No, he's definitely not rapping off the top of his head, maybe 1% of freestyles are, you can usually tell when they are, search snoop freestyle in arsenio, you can tell that it wasn't written, the rhymes are so simple, unlike in em's

This new flow of his reminds me of Em back around when Eminem Show came out: he always goes hard and puts emotion in his songs, but it feels like he's laid back and in control at the same time. But man, even with how sick everyone else was, Em reminded me why he's the best rapper of all time. He made me feel like I was 9 years old again, when I first heard The Real Slim Shady driving through Detroit with my dad and my brother. I'd be a bad magician cuz I'll fuck a trick up!

  • Brandon Hamm

    Em sounded pretty good over Primo production. Budden was my favorite overall

  • CINAVENOM

    I miss Em sounding like this. This reminded me of how good he could have been. He is always dope in his freestlyes and cipers. To bad his albums are corny as hell. Crooked murdered this shit.

    • roleheki

      yall are dumb, his new albums suck ass compared to old. how he rapped here was like how he use to. just complete and utter talent and skill, not that complaining and everybody else writing his pop ass choruses like you here now on the radio

      LOL @ PE, De La Soul or Ice Cube coming even close to the lyrical finesse presented here. Nobody of them could think of the shit if they had months to write it.

      de la, PE, and peek ice cube were dope, but eminem is blowing everyone out the water. peek ice cube was not nicer than em. stop hating

    • nickel

      im talking genius in terms of flow wordplay and punchlines, which is what CYPHER is all about.. peak ice cube is not relevant to this page, he was dope for complete other reasons

    wow... cant hate on that ill probly go out n buy there shit after hearin this they stole the show at those awards

  • IAmControverse

    That was NOT a cypher...it was a COLD-BLOODED MURDER. How does ANYONE learn to rap like that? There are no words to accurately describe what Yela, Slaughterhouse, and Em (let's stop calling him overrated now, shall we?) did in that cypher. I also loved the antics during the whole thing (Em dropping the mic and walking away from the cypher, Joe shaking his head, them trading jokes in their rhymes, etc). The "take the Wine out of Amy's House" and the Posdnuos and the prostitute lines killed me. It's only right that Royce covered the camera at the end, because had it not been for Heavy D (AWESOME), the show would have been over. Even Mike Epps had nothing to say. Shady is looking good right now.

      EXACTLY! Hip Hop is being taken back and I LOVE IT!!!!!!

      its called dedication and not listening to what other people tell u what u cant and can do....practice after perfect practice and being a student to the game thats how!

  • Stephen Blakely

    Joe Budden is SICK ("Stole the wine from Amy's house") and still threw a shot at Jay ("I ain't watching the throne, I'm sabotaging it")...Easily the best cipher of the night.

  • Sourheadband420

    Could we get Em on a Premo Beat since he's obviously in Detroit? Damn this was a a a damn good cipher I like crooked, Joell and Ems verses the most not in any order

  • Grizzle

    Dope beyond belief, won't even bother trying to rank this shit because they all ripped it.

  • Brendon Silver

    FUCKING LEGENDARY!!!

    I never comment in 3 years i been coming here. But i was waiting on this moment for 4 years with Slaugher. Never knew it'd come with Shady but I'm glad. It seems they've all reinvigorated Marshall. They've reawoken the beast. Yela was dope as well

      Eminem is the GOAT. Most skills, nobody is fucking with his abilities, he's out of this world.

      THAT WENT OVER JACK HEAD HE TIGHT U MAD ??? HAHAH

    • jack

      1st of all im not white u fukin fruitball im black. second of all whether it be 15 20 50 years later he'll still be the greatest. either way, the technical shyt like that doesnt matter

    • dffff

      @ jack -- no you stupid whiteboy, eminem is not the GOAT. Is he a great lyricist, yes, a great performer, yes, will he be remembered as one of the greatest? definitely yes. But in 15 years time someone else will be the 'goat' of that period.

    • jack

      shut the fuk up with that philosophical bullshyt. em is the g.o.a.t.
