Thursday night at the Great Hall, hip-hop fans had the opportunity to see the multi-talented, underground legend J-Live. The event, presented by The Academy & The Cypher, was a celebration of the art of emceeing, dj’ing and production. DJ Combo & DJ Romeo warmed up the crowd, splitting duties on the 1’s and 2’s. The cypher crew then invited any willing emcees to hit the stage and showcase their skills. Whether it be on the stage, street corner, or studio; cyphers help emcees to grow, feed off eachothers creativity, and prove themselves to their peers. There were rappers of all skill levels who took part, and at the end of the day it was all love. Hit the jump below for the full article.
