A Cypher is when a group of rappers form a circle or huddle and freestyle or improv-rap with one another. It‘s not just an exchange, but a construction in which one rapper will incorporate ideas from the last, improvise a verse, and then the next rapper will build off of all those ideas and incorporate them into his rap, and so on.  In Cypher Tank, a group of hired, capable freestyle rap artists will be given a concept, product, or construct, and then will be asked to freestyle concerning this concept. Afterwards, a second group of creative individuals, called ‘The Idea Men’, will translate the raw data into concrete terms that will be easier for the client to practically implement.

Cypher Tank will provide middle school- college aged African Americans from low-income backgrounds with the opportunity to meet mentors and establish connections with successful business owners
