Skillz On BET Cyphers “I Never Thought It Was Possible To Lose That Much Respect For That Many Rappers In 1 Day. I Saw 2 Rappers That Are All Over Blogs & Radio Start Over 64 Times!"

Skillz is veteran battle rapper who is used to being in being around and hearing other gifted MC's. What he witnessed while participating in the taping of the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards cyphers has the Virginia rapper wondering where all the talent went.

Skillz told AllHipHop that he can't believe some of the rappers that he heard are actually popular.

I never thought it was possible to lose that much respect for that many rappers in one day. These are the cats that are supposed to be hot?” Skillz asked. "None of them came there prepared. Well, I can’t say none of them, but a lot of them didn’t! Watching some of that sh*t was sad. I watched two particular rappers who are all over the blogs, mixtapes, radio, and magazines stop and start their verses over 64 times!! 64!! I stood there and counted, yo! Between the two of them, they started over 64 times!! We talking 16 bars, yo! And I don’t mean they messed up at the 14th bar and started over. You f*cked up at bar three! I mean, damn, did you write the verse??? Watching that sh*t was sad, ‘cuz let the web tell it, you’re the new hot kid on the block. But, what I saw didn’t represent that at all. I don’t know. I expected more, I guess. Like, know your verse. Come prepared. I felt bad for DJ Premier. He had to sit there through that and remain professional,”

While he didn't go as far as naming names, the awards show airs Tuesday October 11. So we won't have long to wait before we can decide for ourselves which big name rappers aren't as good as maybe we thought they were.

It would be impossible to know who Skillz is referring to before the show airs, but check out the list of MC's that participated in this year's cypher.

Slaughterhouse, Eminem, Skillz, Nitty Scott MC, Estelle, Meek Mill, Wale, Officer Ricky, Ludacris, Blind Fury, Kevin McCall, Chris Brown, Lady of Rage, Busta Rhymes, B.o.B., Yelawolf, Tech N9ne, Kendrick Lamar, Machine Gun Kelly, French Montana, XV, Wais P, Rico Staxx, Termanology, Sean Cross, Gilbere Forte, Chris Sutton
and Jay Rock.
