This guy goes to my school he's unreal! we should get Lupe to listen to this... its worth it!
Verses r dope, but not too sure bout the beat selection....wats his name
His name is Cypher ! Dope rapper!Check his vids out:http://www.youtube.com/user/cYph3rThaFuture
I like how the graffiti was on paper end. Haha, that's positivity.
Needs to work on his voice/delivery.
no judgement. this kid is nice and the paper thing is pretty cool too haha
Positive in-between-out and all round. Positively + Graffiti = PositiveGraftying = No afraid to show the loveee through graffati. :D
great voice/delivery is all thats lackin. but yea this is dope
Yeah def needs to work on delivery and beats.
wow, this guy is good, lupe needs to meet this guy wow. great flow
(after lupe) cypher's intro was very limp ("....yeahhhhhh................"), i LOLed. but his lyrics were decent. Also loved the choice of beat (and changing "Damn it feels good to be a gangster" into "Lasers"). But like everyone else already said, he just needs to work on his delivery and stage presence of his body language and face (he seemed a little stiff and unsure at times). I would also suggest changing the stage name, Cypher just sounds generic imo (like a parody name for a rapper in a TV show), its like naming yourself "Emcee" or "Bars", it just feels like u didnt put any thought into it = /
i think this kid is focused on bringing back the roots of hip hop, back to graffiti, lyricism, and if you know what a cypher is, i doubt you could say there was no thought into selecting that as a name, a cypher is true hip hop, fueled by positive reinforcement, a circle, completion of a cycle, seems like thats what this kid is all about.. so big ups to him! i'm lookin out for big things from him, only seventeen!
@Anonymous: I was well aware of what a cypher is before i saw this vid (how could made my argue without knowing in the first place?). And I see where youre coming from with making sense for y he would choose it, but i still hold to my opinion thats its generic and unoriginal choice for a stage name (regardless of what meaning the word has). And you can embody all of those grassroots traits of hip-hop that u stated without having to coming off as just bare-bones with no flair or stage presence. (and honesty, wouldnt "Cypher" make more sense for a group name than one for an individual? 0_o...just sayin'). In my previous post, i wasnt just hating, i was actually giving realistic, constructive criticism to what i witnessed in the vid. And i did give him praise where it was due. But just because someone is spiting a positive message, that doesnt mean that im going to just give them a pass on criticism. Anyways, this is just my feelings on the guy, i think he has potential and i look forward to seeing his growth (subbed him on YT), hes just rough around the edges atm. And I dont hold my opinion above yours in anyway man, yours is just as equal. No disrespect, just respectfully disagreeing.
yeup i agree as well! hes got lots of time for improvement, so i too am curious to see his development! it would be cool to know what lupe thinks of this video huh? :P
Thanks for the comment - have a nice day !
