The 2021 Hip-Hop Awards Cypher freestyles didn’t necessarily live up to the hype from past awards shows, but it was still nice to see some of the young talent doing their thing. There was a “Cypher Lyricism,” featuring Tierra Whack, Smino and D Smoke, a “digital cypher” made up of Kidd kenn, Lakeyah, Toosii and Symba and a “Hot Now Cypher” with Erica Banks, Fivio Foreign, Sleeping shrine and Rico Naughty. Women were definitely represented, and at least one woman was in each number, which was great to see. The content for the most part wasn’t refreshing, but its 2021 and the raps match the songs we get, so that makes sense.
