With the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards set to air Tuesday night (Oct. 10), the folks at BET have unveiled this year’s Instabooth freestyle. One of the more star-studded freestyle sessions you’ll ever see, this edition of Instabooth included bars from the likes of Dave East, YFN Lucci, A$AP Ferg, Tee Grizzley, Zoey Dollaz, T-Pain, Waka Flocka and many more.
“Claim you want me, that’s something that you just gotta prove/Lotta jewels, Gucci uniforms like it’s private school/Crazy me wearing these red bottoms, been throwing em’ out the blue/Young rich nigga, probably find me where Stella got her groove,” raps East, his dropped his EP, Paranoia: A True Story, back in August.
After East, numerous other rappers stepped to the mic. Then it was time for Lucci, who recounted his come-up in a tight verse of his own. “Way before Prada, we was some young niggas we ain’t have no role models/Got hit the block and get some cheese, that’s how we was brought up,” Lucci spits in the cypher, which was intermittently hosted by DJ Khaled and Big Tigger.
Many more rappers step up to the mic, but you’ll have to peep the whole Instabooth session for yourself to experience the full glory. Trust us, more than a few people go in, so it’s definitely worth a look.
The 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards are all set to air on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. EST.
