Cap City Cyphers is celebrating 5 years. Inspired by the lively rap communities in NYC, Cap City Cyphers (CCC) came together in 2018 to host and facilitate space for emerging and veteran emcees alike to use their voices by playing with different methods of improvised lyricism and vocalization. Since its inception, CCC has partnered with many local organizations that encourage more life to Rap and Hip-Hop in the Ottawa region (unceded Algonquin territory).
