(hip hop music) – [T.I.] Okay. – All right now. – This shit lookin’ professional, you dig? – Wow. – [T.I.] What up, Hed? – Let’s see who deserves
to perform on this set. – [Troyman] Is anybody
sacrificing anything right now? – [Man] Man. – I quit my job. I was like, “I’m going to do this show, “are y’all down?” They was like, “No.” I was like, “I’m out this bitch.” This competition, it’s on a deeper scale than proving that I can rap better than these guys. This competition is the best platform for me to do my goal in music. I wanna heal people through music. – I feel like I’m one
of the biggest threats in this competition. I’m seasoned, I’m ready, I’ve been working really
hard for this opportunity. So for me, you know, everybody
is gotta be taken out at some point, you know. – Ready when you ready, Hed.

on the BET Cypher before. You killed it there,
and you killed it here. – Thank you so much, sir. – How was it working together? ‘Cause it seemed like
everybody was rapping against each other and shit. What was going on with that? – We actually had to work as a group, but we knew it was a competitive sport. We knew that we could still work together and still have competition, and
you’re good to make it work. – That’s my pick. (T.I. laughs) – [Chance] Word. – I picked him. – Troyman, you cranked it off. – I think we brought the
beast out of each other. We fed off each other’s energy. One person would say something dope, it was like, “I gotta top that. “I gotta come with
something just as dope.” – You kinda lost your flow a
little bit there, didn’t you? – Yeah, yeah. I missed a line. I just knew not to stop and kept going. – Yeah. – I knew the next bar was really hard, the Demi Lovato line, so I just tried to make
sure I fit that in. – Gotta get Demi in there. (Jakob chuckles) Onetake Carter, you
kind of filled in with, – You was a prostitute. – Yeah, you a prostitute. (all laughing) – I said, “Fuck everything,
get money, I’m a prostitute.” – No, that ain’t what you said. (Cardi B laughs) It sound like you meant to say something, there was a gap there, and you caught the line
on “I’m a prostitute”. (both laugh) You dig what I’m saying? Nah, I’m just, you know, these are just the things that stood out, and we just sitting here
nitpicking to find greatness. – [Cardi B] Y’all was very spicy. (Cardi B trills) Y’all was the hot sauce. – [Chance] I was waiting for it. – And everybody else was the chicken wing. (all laugh) – All right man, love.
– Appreciate it.
