“You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge ….known as The ARRRISE AND GRIND HIP HOP CYPHER CH. 1!”
Hip Hop has come a long way since the late 1960s, 1990s to the present day. At one point, music critics once called rap not music and rappers like NWA a Fad in the late 80s and 90s. Now, new rappers come forth out of the woodwork and are becoming social media sensations by posting their music videos on internet platforms.
The future of Hip Hop definitely looks greater as it is no longer a subculture of the old but is now one of the trendsetters of culture. Ladies and gentlemen, step into the world of hip hop: The ARRRISE AND GRIND HIP HOP CYPHER CHAPTER 1! The mastermind behind this cypher is none other than director, editor, curator, and shooter R. Ray Robinson of arrriseandgrindproductions. The ARRRISE AND GRIND HIP HOP CYPHER CHAPTER 1 is a viral event where local rappers came together to freestyle their lyrics on the microphone one after the other. Afterwards, the event is broadcasted on social media platforms such as Youtube or Instagram.
Picture this rolling: A group of talented rappers huddled in a circle, each waiting their turn to show off their lyrical prowess. And let me tell you, they don’t disappoint. Underground and independent rappers: J Soulstice, Ali Khan Bey, Cleopatra Moor, Jonnie Bars, and Afi El brought their A-game, while viewers on social media were left in awe.
What makes a hip-hop cypher so great, you ask? Well, it’s not the latest designer clothing or having a bank account that could buy a small island. It’s all about the incredible flow, style, and rhymes that these rappers bring to the table. And boy, does this cypher bring the heat!
With each rapper’s unique style, the cypher was a melting pot of deep voices, smooth vibes, technical rapping, and a whole lot of flavor in the ears of many. And let’s not forget about the poetic flow, because each rapper’s verse was a lyrical masterpiece. The instrumental was provided by beat producer J Ghost the Conscious Hippy who added to the energy and excitement of the cypher with his beat.
But what really made this cypher stand out was the passion and unapologetic delivery of each rapper. The rappers gave it their all, and it showed in every line they spit. The cypher was a true representation of real hip hop, and the crowd couldn’t get enough.
The Arrrise and Grind Cypher Ch. 1 was filmed at The Angle LA in Los Angeles, and the video can be found on the arrriseandgrindproductions Youtube page (or on Ray’s instagram: arrriseandgrindprod1). So, if you’re looking for a good time, and some seriously sick rhymes, give this cypher a watch. Trust us, you won’t regret it.

Ray Robinson’s keen eye for talent and passion for hip-hop, Ray has successfully brought together some of the best independent rappers together to showcase their skills and talents in the cypher session.
