Deadman Cyph – Midnight
Just in time for the Halloween season, Deadman Cyph debuts the grizzly, Brixx shot video for “Midnight”, a single off his upcoming debut mixtape, “INSIDEMYHEAD VOL.1”.
Born in Hempstead, NY and raised in Bay Shore NY, Deadman Cyph draws his unapologetically blunt mannerisms and inimitable narrative from the diversity of his environment, Long Island. His style is parallel to that of Pandora’s Box: any type of record can and will be executed to the apex of his unique character and the product will be wicked.
Up until adolescence, Cyph’s musical experience includes performance of piano, trumpet, and baritone. It wasn’t until high school that he picked up DJing on a pair of Numark TTXs which eventually led to his passion for rapping. Given his resume, it is fair to assume his musical taste scales a plethora of different, tasteful genres. With influence from Sóley, Corinne Bailey Rea, Biggie Smalls, MC Guru, Erykah Badu, Kurt Cobaine and Amy Winehouse ; his aesthetic is outside of any status quo.
His music and following is strong, aggregating 1.73 million listens (Soundcloud) on his debut single “ODB.” A month later, while opening for Bone Thugs Worldwide at The Pit in Colorado, he released his second big single “Big Brother”, amassing 977,000 listens. Manifest Destiny, his former collective he represents, released their first conglomerate LP in November. In 2018 he re-branded with his newly formed collective/label “RIPLABELS (ᴚ.?.ᴘ ˡᵃᵇᵉˡˢ). His art is based around life and death and change.
