by John Cordero 

The Cipher: A History of Hip Hop in Miami (1995-1999), is a collection of the best of The Cipher, an independent newspaper published from 1998 to 2000. It is also a memoir by author John Cordero, who arrived in Miami in 1995 and immersed himself in the underground Hip Hop scene at the time.  

Chronicling the rise and fall of the publication, the book is a story of Hip Hop in Miami in the words of its artists and creators, taken from interviews and told as a narrative of unfiltered recollections and anecdotes.  Featuring never-before seen photos and memorabilia, it is a personal journey that stresses overcoming all odds alongside the trials and tribulations of Miami youngsters making sense of and reporting on the multi-million dollar rap industry developing around them in the mid-to-late '90's.

Featuring interviews with stars such as DJ Craze as he began to dominate the competition, DJ Khaled from an underground radio station, and many more MC's, DJ's, Aerosol Artists and B-Boys and B-Girls, The Cipher is a testament and historical record of the creativity and talent that rose from the streets of Miami to rule the charts and ultimately reign atop pop culture.  

Featured: DJ Craze, Phife Dawg (RIP), DJ Khaled, Guru (RIP), OutKast, Bobbito Garcia, Kool Keith, DJ EFN/Crazy Hood Productions, Speedy Legs, DJ Snowhite, DJ Coop D Ville, Freek/DAM, DJ Epps, Crook & Crome/MSG, DJ Raw, Nick Fury, Edecsta UW/IHS, Ground Zero Crew, Pitbull, Lil' Kim, Mic Rippa (RIP) and others!
