In hip-hop culture, a cipher is a gathering of emcees, rappers, or street poets randomly trading lyrics; a meeting of the minds if you will. Within that group there are several elements that are always present. There's the cat who's really not that good but likes to be heard. There's the "conscious" guy who rhymes about the ills of society, etc. Then there's the gangster with street lyrics, the witty one with the funny one-liners, and the "pimp" that loves to tell his tales; just to name a few. To witness one, you'd definitely leave entertained, even if only amused. To witness one of the best you'd leave entertained, educated, amazed, and itching for more. You see, alone, each of the above elements isn't that great. No one wants to hear the same thing over and over. It's by chance when the right ones come together at the right time you get to see and hear something truly amazing. Even more amazing is when you find one individual who effortlessly balances each of those elements making them his own. Introducing, Sypha,........ A life-long resident of Houston, TX, Sypha grew up like many during that time, heavily influenced by rap/hip-hop music. His life story probably reads like any other rapper's you hear about; broken home, bad neighborhoods, drugs, etc. He eventually got tired of it all and joined the Army where if nothing else, he gained a tireless work ethic and "never quit" attitude. While his frequent moves in the military prolonged his dream of making music, it also helped develop his sound by exposing him to a variety of people, places, and musical styles. His has been described as a combination of the legendary Tupac and Scarface; without trying to be either of the two. He has a distinct and confident delivery and isn't afraid to be creative. His ability to be thought-provoking without preaching, to be creative but still in touch, to relate to so many without following the current "formula" is what makes his music captivating and appealing. But he'll let you be the judge of that. In hip-hop, a cipher is a meeting of the minds. Sypha is the highly-anticipated product of that meeting.
