cipha

what's the point in fading out the year of release during the outro of a song? i don't know, but that is exactly what cipha did. maybe a try to let dj's play the record even years later. anyway, i think they're from philly and consist of kid flex and solomon. looking at their real names they could even be brothers.

i like two of the three cuts of this 12" on sojourn records. while "rock rock on" has a calmative mellow vibe, "scared ta die" brings the drama. as i said before, the year of release is not mentioned on the label and during "rock rock on" it is censored. my guess is '96/'97.

i have not seen any other material by them.



CIPHA 12" '9x

1. ROCK ROCK ON
2. DON'T GET TOO CLOSE!
3. SCARED TA DIE




enjoy!

I think it must have been recorded in 1996! By the way they are from Wilmington.
