Watch: HipHopDX & The Rapfest Present: Series 7 | Vinny Cha$e, Manolo Rose & D. DiYari (Produced by Hazel)


The Rapfest is proud to announce the 7th installment their cipher series and 3rd in collaboration with HipHopDX. Their formula of meshing Hip-Hop’s established acts alongside talented newcomers and producers has been paying dividends.


For this edition, The Rapfest recruited three of New York’s finest: Vinny Cha$e (Harlem, NY), Manolo Rose (Brooklyn, NY), and Newburgh, NY based newcomer D. Di’Yari as the UpNext artist. Per usual, the visuals are captured by the eyes of talented director Chris Zino of Exhibition Z.

“Rapfest is contributing massively to the music community because they are providing an accessible outlet,” says the series producer Hazel who hails from Vancouver and has worked with the likes of Akon and Sophia Grace.

Hazel’s beat perfectly infused the New York grittiness from the early 90’s while remaining ahead of the curve in 2015. This cipher takes you back to the core of Hip-Hop and proudly displays some of the best recent talent the state of New York has to offer.
