1. We quite literally came up on this one accidentally. We randomly ran into an enormous crew of African hip hop artists at a local restaurant in DC (Busboys and Poets to be exact) who were all here for an Arts Exchange sponsored by the US State Department. So we had to organize something. Here is a little improptu cipher featuring heads from Benin, Djibouti, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Equatorial Guinea, Rwanda, Burundi, Zambia, and Swaziland, and of course we brought in DC heavyweight Flex Mathews.

    Featuring: Flex Mathews, Waterflow, Obscur Jaffar, Romeo, Betty Akna, Don Deltafa, Archange, Riderman, Chaka Pompi, and KrTC.

  2. On March 3rd, 2012, Nomadic Wax brought fourteen MCs reppin' from all over the world to film the first installment of the new exclusive Global Ciphers series. The first episode was filmed in Hunts Point in the South Bronx, at the legendary 'The Point' community center.

    Nomadic Wax's Global Ciphers series aims to introduce audiences to the legion of voices that are a part of our hip hop world. Hosted by Hired Gun and backed by Dj Boo on the 1s and 2s (also holding down production on the instrumental), Global Ciphers: NYC features MCs from 6 different countries spitting in Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, and English, all of which have been translated and subtitled.
