In 1996, Cipha Sounds started as an intern with Wildman Steve and DJ Riz of New York's Flip Squad, and eventually Riz asked Cipha to spin at clubs with him as an opening DJ. Later on, the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself when Lil' Kim asked Cipha to go on tour with her. For a year and a half Cipha worked with Lil' Kim, touring across the country and Europe. After he returned to the U.S., Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex asked Cipha to join his Big Dawg Pitbulls crew. Cipha became a mix show DJ on Funkmaster Flex's evening show on Hot 97, and he eventually got his own show called Cipha Saturdays at the same station. On Sirius Satellite Radio's Shade 45 channel, he hosted a show called The Cipha Sounds Effect along with Angela Yee, DJ Wonder and the Emoticon. He started the show in 2004, and his last show was on July 1, 2008. Before moving on from Shade 45, Cipha started a podcast that became the weekend morning show on Hot 97 with Peter Rosenberg. It aired every Sunday from 4am to 9am. The show was called The Cipha/Rosenberg Experience. After the shows following grew they were giving a Saturday morning slot from 6am to 10am. The show's extremely high ratings for its time slot was unheard of so hot 97 moved The Cipha/Rosenberg Experience to Mon-Fri 5am to 7am and re-airs 12am to 2am every night. It was part of Hot 97's new morning lineup that also airs Big Boy's neighborhood 7am to 10am
