Project Cypher is an annual charity concert founded and produced by hip-hop star HighTyde (Ryan Evans). This year’s event, Project Cypher 3, emanates from The Warehouse in Battle Creek, MI on May 14. Sponsored by The EDGE 104.9FM, its purpose is to raise donations for 3-year-old Jaxon House who suffers from Dihydrolipoamide Dehydrogenase Deficiency. A successful producer, designer, video director and recording artist, Hightyde will be the first to say Project Cypher is bigger than he and hip-hop combined several times over.
Hip-hop group Konspiracy Kamp would agree.
All the artists scheduled to perform are the heart of Project Cypher 3. Each of them, which includes Drama aka Treason, Shneal, and JCutless, adds strength to its pulse.
I asked the Kamp what they get from being part of Project Cypher. They issued this statement in response.
“Every member of Konspiracy Kamp - Drama aka Treason, Shneal, JCutlass - feels honored to be a part of the Project Cypher event, and hope to help make it as successful as possible. Our record label, Konspiracy Rekords, and group Konspiracy Kamp are revolutionary in nature, and giving back or helping our communities is always one of the primary goals and focuses of our music.
Considering a lot of our songs are aggressive, militant, revolutionary hip-hop tracks exposing and rebelling against tyranny, oppression, and corruption, we love to be able to show our softer sides in support of a good cause.
We believe it’s important to care for and unite with your local communities and feel that’s where a positive change in society has to come from. We want to thank Ryan Evans for his caring heart and all of the hard work and effort put in to organizing these Project Cypher events.”
