Acoustic Hip-hop Cypher in Person W/lil Mc
April 16 @ 3:00 PM PDT
Join us for the FOURTH Acoustic Hip-Hop Cypher w/ LiL MC. We’ll be using a live beat machine to program drums in various genres of Hip-Hop music and inviting participants to engage in a classic Hip-Hop cypher where we take turns either freestyling or sharing written rap verses over live beat sets that we program together. LiL MC will give a brief explanation and lesson on rapping then we will discuss content ideas and collectively create a simple hook and take turns freestyle lyrics that are cohesive with the theme we have chosen. This is an informal cypher with no microphone, just a group of artistic open-minded individual participating in a collective musical experience rooted in Hip-Hop culture.
