The first ever official Sedona Rap Cypher, hosted by 18-year-old rapper and slam poet James Gould, will give young performers an opportunity to compete and to demonstrate their rap abilities in front of a live audience.The Sedona Rap Cypher will be on June 14, at 6 p.m., at Java Love Café coffee shop, 2155 SR 89A, in West Sedona. Entry is $3 for those 18 and younger and $5 for adults.

In a cypher, rappers perform one after another while standing in a circle, with or without an audience. Over three rounds, the rappers will have one minute each to perform. After each round some of the performers will be eliminated. One round will be pre-written while the others will be freestyle. The freestyle rap will be non-aggressive, according to Gould, who will announce the topics and certain rules on the rounds. The audience will judge the artists and decide the winner, who gets a share of the prize money.
