According to telatela.com, Justin Bieber was banned from entering the annual BET Hip-Hop Awards Cyphers last month, because he was not considered a “credible” contender.
Every year, rappers apply to take part in the battle and DJ Premier bumps heads with the producer to decide who will win a place in the Cypher. Eminem, Yelawolf and Joe Budden are just some of the names of those who take part in the freestyle rapping, however, Premier reveals that there was one teen who had the courage to ask to take part.
“Justin Bieber even asked if he could do the cypher,” Premier told HipHopDX. “Everybody was worried that it might mess up the integrity of BET but I was like, ‘Long as he got a dope rhyme, let him spit.’ But, then we heard, ‘He wants Luda towrite his rhyme.’ I was like, ‘Oh, no, no, no, no, no.’ If you ain’t writing your own rhyme, you can’t do it.”
He added “So, Justin, you gotta take a backseat on that one. Write your own rhymes, honey.”
Should Justin Bieber have been given a chance to join the BET Hip-Hop awards Cyphers?
