Often indie artists face an uphill battle trying to get their music heard, as they typically have far fewer financial resources to promote their music than major labels do.
Despite the struggle, many labels have survived, and thrived, for years, and many other indie labels may not have lasted forever but had a tremendous impact on music both creatively and in terms of business.
The struggle to musical freedom has birthed a new activity that will help boost the works of artists.
This initiative is designed to bring all musically inclined bodies together. With the aid of a single beat, both mainstream and underground artistes will display their lyrical prowess on the “Big 6 Cypher instrumentals.
The Cypher will be officially engineered by 2 fast rising producers Ghana can boast of, CJ Beatz and DDT.
About the #Big6Cypher
The #Big6Cypher is scheduled to commence every month. Organizers we will hand-pick 6 rappers randomly to be featured on a beat. Each artist will unleash 16 bars on the beat (No restrictions to swear words).
The maximum duration for the cypher beat(s) produced by the engineers mentioned above will be 6 minutes throughout. After production, there will be both the clean and ‘dirty’ version of each record produced by the fast rising engineers.
Every month there will be new artistes until the 6th month where organizers will select the best 6 from the previous records and compile them for the mega edition.
These artistes will fall under these music genres: Hip-hop, R&B, Gospel, Dancehall/Reggae, Hiplife & Highlife.
The final project for the first era, organizers will round it with a video shoot and the #Big6Cypher anthem.
Face-2 begins on the 7th month and it runs through to the 6th month for the grand cypher anthem 2.
