Desus & Mero, the self proclaimed “number one show in Late Night” had New York City’s own DJ Cipha Sounds on their show to talk about Hip-Hop, comedy and how he brings those things together. Cipha is a stand up comedian and host of Hip-Hop Improv With Cipha Sounds on Tidal, which started out as a stage show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. His Hip-Hop Improv show involves interviewing some of the biggest names in the Hip-Hop world, then doing improvised comedy on the spot based on their stories.

In this episode, they discussed Cipha’s new show “Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks” coming to truTV and also revealed that he watched the famous Rick James “Chapelle Show” sketch before it ever aired and was saying “I’m Rick James, bitch” for six months before it was actually released.

Cipha Sounds was excited AF to be on Desus & Mero.

The sleepy-eyed Puerto Rican, who doesn’t smoke weed despite, as he says, looking like he does, came on the show to discuss a range of topics. He talked about getting into comedy, touring with Bad Boy Entertainment and his new comedy show releasing on truTV.

Although Desus & Mero showed him love on the show, Cipha revealed how Jay-Z has been lowkey dissing him.

Of course he was mostly joking, as Cipha is signed to Jay-Z’s management company Rocnation, and has his own show on Tidal, Jay-Z’s streaming service, he did admit that Jay-Z hesitated when Cipha asked him for his new number. Yikes.

His advice on Desus & Mero’s Rainbow was “don’t be a fuck face.”

A tradition on the show, everyone gives a piece of advice or says something they’d like shown in a rainbow above them. Cipha didn’t hesitate, saying “don’t be a fuck face” which is apparently a mantra of his. Basically, it just sounds like the golden rule, with the f-word in the middle of it. And everything is better with the f-word in the middle of it.

Cipha revealed that he’ll be hosting a show on truTV.

According to Hollywood Reporter Cipha Sounds new show “offers a refreshing new take on traditional stand-up comedy. In it, the next generation of comedians bring their hilarious personal stories to life with a playful reinvention of standup.”


Sounds dope and we can’t wait to see it!
