We need help paying for the space for 2015 so we can keep the cypher free for all attendees. If we don't come up with this money the cypher will soon be coming to an end. We can do this only with your help!
The Freedom Cypher is a centralized meeting place for Boston’s Hip Hop community to share their gifts over the music of some of the area’s most talented beat makers, composers, producers and DJs. Each month a different beat maker provides the sounds for Emcees, Poets and Singers from across city and state lines to come together and share the microphone. Sometimes improvised, sometimes written, the inspiration is infectious and we invite the community at large to watch, participate and network.
Our 2014 venue, The Democracy Center which is a non-profit space has allowed us to bring in a mobile recording booth & more! Each month we feature a different beat maker to showcase instrumentals with resident DJ "G7" on the wheels of steel. The Wreck Shop Movement‘s founder and organizer, Justice Born, is always on hand hosting while in-house producer Tommy Forge runs the pop-up recording studio, The Solidified Sound Lab. Co-organizer, Mars Jupiter, has his cassette and vinyl library, The Vibrary, open to the public as well.
This is the place to soak up creativity, share your gifts and connect!
The Freedom Cyphers' buzz has grown so strong over the past few years that MassCanns' event organizer Chris Foye invited us to kick off the 2nd day of Bostons annual Freedom Rally aka "Hemp Fest" at the Boston Commons this year.

Risks and challenges
The only risk we've ever had running The Freedom Cypher has been losing the space due to lack of funds as this has been a FREE event for participants. We don't plan to ever charge entry but space costs money so this is a challenge we aim to overcome with your help.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
