Back in April, a group of Duck Down Records artists gathered in Union Square Park in New York City to have some fun. Thankfully, people were there to film it. After the jump, check out a brief description of the event and, of course, the video. At just over twelve minutes, it’s a bit lengthy but well worth a watch.
At the very core of the Hip Hop art form, removing the money, flare, jewelry, and fancy marketing schemes, is the ability for an MC to rhyme. Taking it a step further is then the ability for that MC to showcase his/her talent publicly in front of a large audience and WIN THAT CROWD OVER. Duck Down Record’s artists Buckshot, Rock of Heltah Skeltah, Naledge of Kidz In The Hall, Torae, Skyzoo, Steele of Smif N Wessun and members of Team Facelift gathered at Union Square Park in New York City and started a classic Hip Hop Cipher demonstrating the embodiment of what it means to be a true MC.
