**********CALLING ALL EMCEES*************
THE CYPHER - WU-TANG WEDNESDAY!

Featured Performances by:
Admission: PWCY or bring a donation (clothing, canned food, toys, electronics, etc.) for Peace Quest, an organization that sends much needed supplies to people in third world countries. Join the Quest!
Hip Hop culture manifests through the creative self-expression of individuals who embody its spirit in their respective art forms. This power of spontaneous creativity, the unification of a community for the great purpose that is Hip Hop, happens at The Cypher.
Artists sign up at the event to take part in group performances called cyphers, in which each performer takes a few minutes on the mic and then passes it on to the next performer. All performances occur over music supplied by a live DJ spinning hip hop instrumentals. Local producers also have an opportunity to have their music played at The Cypher and rapped over by the performing artists. There are also a few spots at The Cypher reserved for featured artists to perform their own sets.
The Cypher is a grassroots hip hop event started by MC FÜBB, DJ Combo and the Hip Hop Headz (H3) community in downtown Toronto in the summer of 2009. The Cypher is an event where hip hop MCs, DJs, producers, and other artists from around the city come to meet and showcase their talents and skills, and gives them an opportunity to network and create business opportunities. The Cypher is an event designed to keep alive the spirit of spontaneous creativity and showmanship that can occur only in hip hop. The Cypher is an opportunity for various members of the hip hop community to perform, network, build community and have fun.
The Cypher is brought to you by:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sept. 6, 2010
MC FÜBB Presents the Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Official Release Party
Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party, Friday September 10, 2010 at Augusta House
Toronto, ON -- Following the successful viral release of his Blue Collar Worker Mixtape, MC FÜBB is proud to present the Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party. The event, which takes place at Augusta House, 152 Augusta Avenue in Toronto will feature performances by MC FÜBB and special guests. Admission to the event will include a physical copy of the Blue Collar Worker Mixtape.
Blue Collar Worker features 18 powerful tracks including “Six Million”, a song that was written to honour survivors of the Holocaust, something very personal to MC FÜBB as three of his Grandparents are themselves Holocaust survivors. “The topic of the Holocaust is something that was always present in my house growing up, but it wasn’t something that was really talked about. Writing “Six Million” was my way of expressing my thoughts and emotions”, said MC FÜBB
The Blue Collar Worker Mixtape Release Party takes place on Friday September 10, 2010 at Augusta House, 152 Augusta Avenue, Toronto. Live performances by MC FÜBB and special guests; music provided by DJ Bowza. Admission: $5 (Includes copy of Blue Collar Worker)
Blue Collar Worker
"The Blue Collar Worker isn’t about socioeconomic class struggles. It’s a mind-state of the type of grind that nobody sees and yet everybody knows about. It’s not just about rockin’ the mic on stage or spittin’ in the booth; it’s also about trekking around the city with a full backpack and a mission to accomplish. It’s about dragging your ass out of bed when you’d rather sleep-in and taking steps even though your feet hurt. It’s about working that job that you’d rather not work so you can pay for studio time and get your tracks mixed. It’s embodying the type of courage that nobody rewards you for and doing the damn thang instead of complaining about what needs to be done.
The Blue Collar isn’t a status symbol. It’s a representation of everything it takes to achieve one’s goals and materialize one’s dreams. It symbolizes a level of earnestness and integrity that the vast majority of people lack in their lives. It’s a commitment to honouring one’s word and not settling for excuses. It’s the acknowledgment that obstacles are merely limitations that have not yet been overcome. This is what I mean when I say, I’m on a different kind of grind when I pop the Blue Collar…
This mixtape is dedicated to all the people in the world out there putting in work to pursue their dreams - to all the Blue Collar Workers." - MC FÜBB
