The Come Up Show was asked to host the First Look Cypher at the 6th annual Manifesto this year. To those who don’t know the First Look Cypher consists of emcees that are up and coming in the Hip-Hop scene and making a name from themselves, it’s makes sense The Come Up Show presented this segment right? This year the cypher included emcees Casper, Ashton Martin, and Dante Leon. Each emcee got approximately 30 seconds for the first round of cypher, then got to perform their own original song for a minute, and then we ended it with a quick round of cyphers. Hosted by yours truly, J.R. and our good friend DJ Doubledown on the tables.
S.A.R.S. aka Sick Artists Runnin Shit Presents S.A.R.S. 9: Quarantine, the latest addition to their acclaimed mixtape series. Established in 2003, S.A.R.S. has now been circulating music across Canada for close to a decade, and has sold over 100,000 copies (physical and digital) independently. They’ve featured artists from across North America and have become one of the most known and celebrated brands in Canada’s mixtape history. The success is due largely to the grind of S.A.R.S. founder and frontline MC, T.R.A. aka Tha Rhyme Animal – an original member of Toronto’s infamous Empire crew and also the host of the series.
S.A.R.S 9: Quarantine is action packed with amazing emcees, lyrical skills and rhyme schemes that guarantee you’ll be looking for the repeat button. The mixtape features a ton of dope artists including The SARS Network, Freedom Writers, Junia-T, Peter Jackson, Raz Fresco, Team Homi, KemiKAL, T-Gramz, Kinsmuv and much more. Make sure you get a copy of this Canadian hip-hop classic and support the independent local underground artists.

If you were present at the 6th annual Manifesto a couple of weeks ago you would have caught the amazing performance by Maestro Fresh Wes. All suited up in Royal Canadian Mountie Police uniform with two back up dancers it was definitely a fresh idea and entertaining to see. In this video you will see an acapella performance of Black Trudeau. Wes then switches it up to the classic Drop The Needle.
