Keepin' it moving in 2011...
Featuring special guest: ------>DJ ROMEO on the 1's and 2's
"DON'T FORGET THE NAME!"
and featured performance by: ------>NEWBREEDMC on the mic
It's not very often that a rapper can come along and blend raw underground rap skills with commercial appeal that transcends cultural and social barriers, but NewBreedMC is definitely one of those MC's cut in the mold of a Mos Def or Black Thought. Holding true to the core essence of Hip Hop that started out in the Bronx, NewBreedMC can spit a rhyme to have the back packer bopping their heads and at the same time he is well enough in tuned to social issues and political agendas that his words could start a small revolution.
NewBreedMC is the epitome of a rapper's rapper and will have every ear that tunes in listening to every verse with the utmost attention.
Don't miss a line - if so rewind!
Hip Hop culture manifests through the creative self-expression of individuals who embody its spirit in their respective art forms. This power of spontaneous creativity, the unification of a community for the great purpose that is Hip Hop, happens at The Cypher.
Artists sign up to take part in group performances called cyphers, in which each performer takes a few minutes on the mic and then passes it on to the next performer. All performances occur over music supplied by a live DJ spinning hip hop instrumentals. Local producers also have an opportunity to have their music played at The Cypher and rapped over by the performing artists. There are also a few spots at The Cypher reserved for featured artists to perform their own sets.
The Cypher is a grassroots hip hop event started by MC FÜBB, DJ Combo and the Hip Hop Headz (H3) community in downtown Toronto in the summer of 2009. The Cypher is an event where hip hop MCs, DJs, producers, and other artists from around the city come to meet and showcase their talents and skills, and gives them an opportunity to network and create business opportunities. The Cypher is an event designed to keep alive the spirit of spontaneous creativity and showmanship that can occur only in hip hop. The Cypher is an opportunity for various members of the hip hop community to perform, network, build community and have fun.
