We just wrapped up our annual Alumni Cypher Series and it was one of the best yet. The tradition is stronger than ever. For the fifth straight year, we invited all of our past guests back to rhyme live on-air with their fellow MCs. We had a different group each Tuesday in July & they all brought the heat!
None of this would have been possible without participation from the thriving artistic community in New England, which includes not only vocal artists, but the producers, graphic designers, photographers, and filmmakers behind the scenes, as well as the institutions that support them and create spaces and opportunities to thrive.
Every July we invite all our past guests back to rhyme live on-air with their fellow MCs. This year we had four cyphers with over 20 artists. For the second year, we partnered with The Beat Club Podcast to provide them with instrumentals to flex on. Watch all four cyphers above and hear us recap our favorites below.

For the third year in a row, we’ve invited all our past guests back for a month of on-air cyphers, all of which will be over 1st Official production. Huge shoutout to The Beatclub Podcast for filtering submissions & hooking us up with him.

After the prepared verses you heard earlier, we had an open cypher session for all the guest MCs. Some went off the top, some kicked unreleased verses, all did their thing. The homies Andy Mac & Chronic Tone were on hand to capture video of most of it, which you can watch below.
