Simply put, the purpose of the R6 Cypher is to:
…Philadelphia Hip Hop
Currently, we are facing a crisis in hip hop: uninspired lyrics, negative messages, monotonous content, and repetitive themes. It is has become stifling and inhibitive. Creativity and individuality are rarely applauded and in the City of Brotherly love, you’d be hard-pressed to receive any from your peers. The mission of the R6 Cypher is to change this bleak reality, and restore Philly to its deep, cultural hip hop roots. This undertaking is not meant to be exclusive, but to reach out and challenge MCs from ALL areas to expand their horizons and broaden their lyrical content: OUR FUTURE depends on it. Our goal is to break the ongoing cycle that is occurring in music and inspire our youth. We’re striving to shift the focus FROM the individual TO the community; and ultimately break the stereotypes that plaque this beautiful, powerful art form.
Transforming the art of MC’ing in Philly and reintroducing our voice to the world through hip hop.
