On Tuesday night (Oct. 16), the ladies showed up in a big way during the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards in Miami. During an all-female cypher, which consisted of burgeoning MCs Bri Steves, Sharaya J, Naleem Hakeem and Chika, it was the veteran DJ, Erykah Badu, who provided the proverbial cherry on top with her show-stealing verse.  

After Bri Steves flexed her lyrical muscle, Badu dashed her way to the finish line all while DJing at the same time. "Boss and a worka, keep a tight circle/ Last name Badu, first name Erykah," the "Tyrone" singer dished out.

The 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards produced high-octane performances from Cardi B, Lil Pump, Gucci Mane and more. Check out the all-femcee cypher below.
