On March 31st, Cypher UniverCity will be holding the 2nd Annual Cypher UniverCity Showcase at King’s Barcade. All of the cyphers from across the state will be represented at the showcase. Artists will be performing live throughout the night, with competitions between the respective cyphers & DJs as well. Press will be admitted free (+1 guest).
Cypher UniverCity is a diverse network of artists & musicians. This network includes cities & schools from all over the state. The organization is based solely on 360 degrees: the cypher. A cypher is when a group of people form a circle & freestyle (poetry, rapping, dancing, philosophical/religious debates; all improvised), creating moments that can never be duplicated. These freestyles cover topics from all walks of life & cultivate an atmosphere of unity amongst the people.
Since the NC State Cypher was created in 2010, more chapters have spread across the state. Cypher UniverCity now has chapters at East Carolina University, UNC Chapel Hill, Appalachian State, UNC Charlotte, North Carolina Central University, etc. Most recently, some of the members have even broken a world record in Chapel Hill. What Cypher UniverCity has set out to do is create a platform for free expression, learning, & unity.
