The three New York emcees spit extended verses over live instrumentation.
Given how easy they are to put together, it’s really a shame we don’t have more cyphers in hip hop these days. Complex is trying to remedy that by pairing rappers and musicians from a city to create a new type of cypher that incorporates live instrumentation.
Their first installment takes place in New York City features emcees Wiki (of Ratking), Your Old Droog and A$AP Ferg. They spit over the smooth instrumentation led by Grammy nominated musician Christian Scott. The beat switches up for each emcee, and we are definitely feeling the vibe.
Who do you think had the best verse?
