The RapFest is back with the 8th installment of their exclusive cipher series, bringing it harder than ever before. This serves as the finale to The Rapfest’s 4-part collaborative subseries with HipHopDX, and it’s no surprise that they decided to go out with a bang.

In this cipher series, Jae Millz, Nems, and Murda Mook, fires up the Chicago produced beat and knocks any last traces of winter out of the park, all in a New York minute! Exibition Z film’s Chris Zino was the only one talented enough to capture the visuals so exquisitely.

The RapFest broke barriers this time, orchestrating the reunion of two battle rap legends straight out of the streets of Harlem. YMCMB’s own Jae Millz and his former competitor, street legend Murda Mook, have barely communicated and certainly hasn’t been featured together since their battle on Smack DVD in 2005. Coney Island’s general, Nems, who is also no stranger to battle rap, serves as an accomplice to this annihilation premeditated by Chicago Beats. The eerie sounding effects and the dark aura created by the guitar are the perfect combination for the crime scene the trio creates.

Peep the FULL clip below:

The RapFest continues to execute in their mission to uplift every aspect of Hip Hop culture, from the producers to the emcees, deciphering every component and harmonizing it in a way that no other platform can.

Series 9 will premiere in April and there’s no telling what barriers will be broken next!

-Stay Fly!
