The Rap Game UK: What is a cypher?


On episode 4 of The Rap Game UK, the artists all took part in a cypher, where they were expected to rap about their personal style

a big prize in store for the rapper that stood out, but there was a twist. “You’ll all be taking part in a cypher in just one hour’s time,” said The Rap Game UK co-host Konan.

The pressure was on. “Learning a whole set of bars in 60 minutes would be hard for any rapper so this is going to be tough

co-host DJ Target said. “But we want to see if these guys will cope if we give them this amount of pressure.

If they’re going to make it in this business, they’ve got to deal with pressure and the stakes.”
