CIPHURPHACE - Master Of Ceremonies. Microphone Crusher. Monster in the Cypher. Metaphor Connoisseur.

Imagine Confucius and Shakespeare in the recording booth reciting ill 16's after consuming four Red Bulls.


Ciphurphace is a New Jersey based, Arizona raised artist who originally hails from the city of Tucson. To truly comprehend his style and put this into a "Hip-Hop" perspective, visualize the old school braggadocio of Big Daddy Kane, the witty punchlines of Lord Finesse and the infectious enthusiasm of Redman. Add a touch of Kool Keith's ludicrous creativity with Chino XL's fierce delivery and you have a bona fide MC named Ciphurphace aka "The Asian Pierce Brosnan With A Beard Problem." 


Ciphurphace represents the 13th & 3rd letter element with the devotion of a respected Hip-Hop pioneer and the hunger of an underground rhyme warlord. The Phaced God is living proof that true emcees still exist in this lifetime. He labels himself as a W.R.I.T.E.R. (Working Realist Illustrating The Everyday Rituals). "If my music had to be classified, it would fall in a category called 100% pure hip-hop laced with Raw Energy And Life," the Phaced God says with heartfelt conviction.

"Ciphurphace - you better ask a friend - I get stupid fly like a retarded cactus wren."
