The 2019 Alumni Cypher

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.

This year’s cyphers are brought to you by the Table Manners DJs & Wreck Shop Movement. Once again, the Beat Club Podcast has provided us with the beats. Producers, get hip to them if you haven’t.

Last but certainly not least, we’d like to thank all our patrons for rocking with us! If you’d like to learn more about that, head over here. There’s exclusive cypher footage and audio…

LFOD Radio Ep. 113 (Featuring Du-Karan)

Welcome to Season V!!! Teya, Tashawn, and Sam are back to kick the season off with Du-Karan, fresh off the release of his new album, 9. The album explores new ground both sonically and emotionally so we dove into the motivations behind that shift, as well as the hazards of living with expectations. Though this is his first solo podcast, longtime listeners will remember Du-Karan from previous live appearances and for his role in launching our #ExtraBars series. 

Listen below or on your favorite podcast app, whether that’s Apple, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, etc… We also broadcast every Monday at 9am on 91.5FM in Boston.
