Flow Motion Freestyle Cipher w B-Side

May 10 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Flowmotion – Freestyle Rap Cipher 9.30pm (after Hip Hop quiz show)

Flowmotion comes in from The Gap in Balsall Heath to it’s first city centre cipher with a few added surprises.

Manifesto:
To create a culture of freestyle and lyrical excellence; to celebrate different styles; to have fun; and to build.

We call emcees, rappers and other vocalists (poets, singers, toasters) and all friends to get with the spirit of the Flow Motion Cipher.

We want to encourage folks to step out of their comfort zones. We want poets to get stylish; street prophets to get poetic; space cats to come back to earth; clay lifers to go to space and everything else in between. We want participants and onlookers alike to encourage and challenge each other.

Rules: We don’t like rules but still…

1. Don’t hog the mic! No one wants to hear 256 bars of the same voice. Do your thing and keep the cipher in motion… your turn will come again.

2. Whilst there is a place for pure punch line rap and battle cats – no dissing anyone in the cipher. We want to world build and create a community, not fall into cheap trick territory.

Flow Motion is for practitioners and spectators alike.
OLD SCHOOL/ NOW SCHOOL/ FUTURE SCHOOL/ ALL WELCOME
Can’t wait to set the cipher in motion.
Bring ya skills!

Venue: The Arcadian

Free to participate
