During our live broadcast in Houston, Texas during Super Bowl weekend, Sway and our squad interviewed legends like Bun B, Slim Thug, Lil Keke, Trae Tha Truth, Z-Ro, Lil Flip and more.

But in true Sway in the Morning fashion, when visiting a new city, we invited hyeeeenas from around Texas to meet us at Prospek Gallery for a cypher showdown. We passed the mic, the limelight and the camera to these local Houston spitters to freestyle live.

Watch our two part cyphers below and let us know what you think. Should these MCs get in the game or sit on the bench?


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
