“Beautiful” is the latest visual release off of the self-titled debut album from the Cypher Junkies. It features and was produced by We Are the Stars, and the video was shot/directed by Andrew Bryan of Fill in the Brand. The song and accompanying video offer insight into the group, both as individuals and within their collective dynamic. The eclectic, true to life, and gritty nature of “Beautiful” showcases the group’s ability to appeal to just about everyone. The Cypher Junkies are a hip-hop group of veteran lyricists out of Orange County, New York and are the spitting image of “don’t judge a book by its cover.” The group has been honing their skills for years via mixtapes, performances (popping up anywhere from Webster Hall to SOB’s to the Apollo Theater), and you guessed it…cyphers. The group has been described as a “Wu-Tang, Beastie Boys” hybrid and upon giving them a look/listen, this appraisal becomes alarmingly accurate.
The Cypher Junkies are MC Bravado, C-Nature, No Name, McNasty, and Marxman. The group has worked with the likes of Mac Lethal, Sean Price, Copywrite, EP of the Doppelgangaz, J57, KONCEPT, and DeeJay Element of BBAS, as well as Anthony Vincent of Ten Second Songs. Their debut album is available as a free download at ElitetiscRecords.Bandcamp.com! The Cypher Junkies will party with you, punch you in the mouth, and provoke introspection while the same L is burning. One listen guarantees a lifetime as a junkie/junkette.

A couple weeks ago Closed Session released a documentary with Lucki Eck$. Today they bring you one of the songs recorded that day, “All Senses”. This was kind of a new sound for Lucki, who switched it up from the slower & spacious production that he’s used to. We think it turned out really well, and enjoy hearing Lucki over a little faster and more drum heavy records. This was produced by Hot Sugar and recorded the same day as “Boomin’”, and drops just after Lucki was added to the Danny Brown tour.
This is part of Closed Sessions Vol. 3, the new collection of original music and documentaries – releasing 2014.
