Canadian Battle Rapper Corey Charron [best known for his freestyle ability showcased during KOTD battles] is calling out Black Entertainment Television for breach of contract by cancelling his appearance on BET’s “The Cypher”.

Corey Charron was featured on BET’s 106 & Park Freestyle Friday battle tournament earlier this year. During the tournament he defeated all of his competition to win $5,000 and ancharron 106Park Check opportunity to appear on BET’s “The Cypher”.  “The Cypher” is scheduled to air during the 2013 Hip Hop Awards; however, Charron was reportedly told that he was cut from the casting only after filming for “The Cypher” had already been completed.
