Joell Ortiz Presents: Fade to Famous, The Cypher Pt. 1

  • Artist: Joell Ortiz
  • Track: Fade to Famous Cypher
  • Producer: Ill Tal
  • Album: Fade to Famous

The barber shop is the heart of the neighborhood, so when Joell Ortiz wanted to give back to the streets via the pure art of rhyming, it was the natural place to hold the first ever Fade to Famous and DJBooth cypher. We invited every willing rhyme spitter in the Big Apple to show and prove their skills, then selected the top six to get down in the cypher, closed out by Mr. Yaowa himself.
