UG CYPHER: Uganda’s finest rappers on one project
Last week 14 of Uganda’s finest rappers collaborated on a major Hip Hop project
called the UG Cypher. The term “cypher” generally refers to something similar to a
Hip Hop jam session in which all the rappers involved contribute to the creative
experience one after another in a circular format. Rap cyphers often become quite
competitive where rappers prove their ability and self-expression through their
personal style of lyrics, creativity, delivery and flow.
The first edition of UG Cypher features Navio, GNL, Mith, JB, Atlas, Flex D’Paper,
Keko, Tucker (AirporTaxi), Llyboq (AirporTaxi), Big Tril, St. Nelly Sade, Ruyonga, Don
MC & DJ Global. The entire project was created and sponsored by Talent Africa; a 360 entertainment company venturing in music, film, events and talent. The audio was produced and engineered by Sam Lamara aka Samurae. The music video was directed by Dayo
Atarodo Oyedele from Nigeria. Talent Africa CEO Aly Allibhai states “It was amazing to
see all these artists come together on the UG Cypher. They all brought they’re best
and proved that Uganda is a force to reckon with when it comes to Hip Hop”. Look out
for the UG Cypher coming soon to your favorite urban music radio and TV stations
locally and Africa-wide.”
