Outright Cypher – The Film [Review]

Victoria, BC – What began as a humble meeting of eight friends in the parking lot of Victoria High School soon turned into a living and breathing entity that has grown exponentially. Outright Cypher is a film that documents the impact that a weekly meeting of MC’s, beat-boxers and enthusiasts has had on the people who attend.

The cypher itself has been alive for more than six years, bringing the city’s most talented out every Wednesday night. For many, OUTRIGHT has been a home away from home, a place to escape, relax, to practice an artform and to be with like minded individuals.

What separates OUTRIGHT from most cyphers is the dedication by the collective to ensure it’s all inclusiveness. The circle goes around, and everyone gets their shot. No one is turned away. It’s this feeling that has kept people coming back to this dusty lot year after year, week after week. This film is dedicated to those who created it, and to those who keep it alive. ORC for LIFE. Camera and Sound by Alex Miller, Darryl LeCraw and Dyland Newstead.

For more info, email Alex at, or just go to the end of North Park road on Wednesdays at 7pm! Check Outright Cypher the film below.

Sinister – 4th Quarter (Prod. Young K)‏‎ [Audio]

Toronto, ON – Toronto-based MC Sinister just hit us with his latest single, “4th Quarter,” off his forthcoming LP entitled The BarFather. Just so you know, the concept and cover art for The BarFather are totals spinoffs of The Godfather. Eeeps!

Sinister comes in on a Young K-produced beat and brings a solid dose of old school-influence into the mix. Sinister uses this track to parallel the rap game with basketball. We’re given a soundbite from the sixth game of the ’98 NBA finals (Utah Jazz versus Chicago Bulls). This was Michael Jordan’s final game with the Bulls. And the fourth quarter was too much to handle. With only seconds remaining in the game, Jordan scored a layup that just put the Bulls in the lead by one point. The Bulls won. Ish was crazy. Anyways, the fourth quarter is the most intensive and deciding part of the basketball game. The fourth quarter is survival of the fittest.

The fourth quarter decides on one winner and one loser (you know – unless OT happens). If we’re putting this into the context of the rap game, Sinister is putting himself into that final round. He’s been on hiatus for a few years, but he definitely wasn’t sleeping. He’s got a new project cooking up. He’s got this new-wave old school flow. And he’s getting into the game. Check the new audio after the jump.

Style meets excellence: Spac3man & Savant are one and the same [Article]

Vancouver, BC – Things are happening in the music game between style and sound; a marriage of hip-hop and fashion that has drawn an increased awareness to not only sounding good but looking equally as put together. Young artists like Drake and A$AP Rocky are becoming tastemakers in the world of men’s fashion, pushing exposure to certain brands that were otherwise nameless to most of the rap world, thus adding a new element to the overall package. How often can you say you’ve seen an artist who has a decent sound but their presence and style were utterly unspectacular? It seems it has become just as important to look that part as it is to sound the part in this ever-growing, competitive hustle.

When we first laid eyes on American emcee Spac3man, his style and presence left a lasting impression. The over 6′ Seattle resident jumped on-stage during an opening set for Future’s Honest Tour in Vancouver and ever since he’s been hard to forget. There’s something intruiging about a man who can put together a fresh outfit and then turn up so hard onstage that he sweats right though it. From a distance, it appears Spac3man has what it takes to make up that whole package.
