TheGr8Cypher is a gathering of HipHop community, curated by TheGr8Thinkaz Media Collective.
Honoring the authentic nature of the HipHop cypher, the Thinkaz provide a free space for artists to perfect their craft while gaining organic exposure.
As its name promotes, the cypher demands that each artist practices Gr8ness in every bar, verse, and freestyle that they present.
TheGr8Cypher officially began in Chicago in 2019, partnering with local businesses and community spaces. In 2021, TheGr8Cypher toured nationally with Mother Nature's SZNZ Tour in Champaign, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Houston.
