Video: Global Ciphers – NYC

We’re very stoked that Nomadic Wax selected us to premiere their brand new cipher video series! The Global Ciphers: NYC session features emcees from six different countries spitting in Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, and English, all of which have been translated and subtitled for international readers.

The Cipher represents the ebb and flow of creative ideas and movement and is the heart of hip hop according to Nomadic Wax. Their cipher series brings diverse heads together to build and share knowledge, allowing emcees to hone and sharpen their raw lyrical skills.

On March 3rd, 2012 Nomadic Wax brought fourteen emcees reppin’ all over the world to film this first installment of the label’s exclusive Global Ciphers series. This episode was filmed in Hunts Point in the South Bronx at the legendaryThe Point community center.

Global Ciphers introduces audiences to the legion of voices that are a part of today’s hip hop world. This first session is hosted by Hired Gun and backed by DJ Boo (also holding down production on the instrumental). Enjoy Global Ciphers: NYC and stay tuned for the next installment!
