Known for bringing some of the city's most skilled emcees together with rising talent, this time the production was provided by the one and only Sxlxmxn while Skelli Skel was on hand to engineer.

"The session was fun," rapper Danny Sky says. "It felt like just some homies coming through just to kick it and [we] ended up making a cypher."

Bocha, YoungShirtMayne and Donte Thomas, the three other featured artists, helped cultivate the "exciting and humorous" energy in the studio, Burn Money CEO Jason Navarrete tells. "Everyone seemed eager to be a part of the process and video," while Sxlxmxn "provided a very fitting beat for the group."

"Everyone’s energy was matched, resulting in a hyped recording session," videographer Fenn Paider describes. "Directly after, the group reassembled at a new location to film the ninth cypher in the ongoing series," and it's clear that the atmosphere smoothly carried over between the two back-to-back sessions for both audio and visuals.

Watch the results of the latest Bridge City Cypher below, plus keep your eyes on Bocha and Donte Thomas' new creative movement Produce Organics (including the Produce Portland retail store in China Town) and do not miss Danny Sky's set at PDX Pop Now! at 8:40pm on Saturday, July 20.
