Soul Food Cypher's Big Announcement

4 years strong, over 75 events, performances and workshops. Even with that, we're only beginning to scratch the surface. Major shoutout goes to all those who have supported SFC in some shape or form whether small or large. We couldn't have gotten this far without all the emcees bringing their skills, guest coming to watch and volunteers helping in various ways.

The goals of SFC are very extensive and real to us. So we're always fine tuning what we do to make sure we're appropriately working towards success. When you have the community and culture as priority 1 and 2, then it makes all of your actions carry a lot more weight. We willingly take on the weight of our goals as our own personal responsibilities. With that in mind, we've got some major news.

We're excited to finally merge our two cypher events with our sub-brand One Hundred into one monthly event at Space2 in O4W to bring you more top-quality beats and freestyle lyrics you've come to know and love in 2015-16. This sunday the 27th will mark just the beginning of our big moves for 2016.

Soul Food Cypher at Wonderroot: October

Not sure if you scare easily but October's cypher brought the SPOOKIEST bars to date! Our Emcees performed a Halloween themed Wordplay segment and their witty lyrics ranged from Candyman to The Grudge. It was great to have Selecta Shizzle back on the 1s and 2s with his international blend of instrumentals and transitions. And we definitely can’t forget our prime time producer, Electricw3irdo who completely lived up to his “Transy-fownky” reputation. 

This month, we were honored to announce our most recent sponsor, The Food Pantry. They served some super delicious mixed vegetable Pasta, soft rolls, and we can’t wait for them to return! 

For our Cypher this month, we will be presenting our yearly Soul Food Awards. So please RSVP and so you don’t miss the opportunity to experience Atlanta's freestyle cypher event, November 22nd at WonderRoot Community Center.

Soul Food Cypher at Wonderroot: September

Brace yourselves, winter is coming but no worry, SFC is still bringing the Heat on 4th Sundays at WonderRoot! Our DJ, representing Zone 6, AlphaTrion, brought an amazing blend of industry beats and some 80s classics! Also, a big shoutout to our featured producer, Maximus, who provided an excellent vibes to the Cypher. Our host and SFC member, Sibila showed us again why he is known as the Vanilla Gorilla. The Cypher was once again honored to have Rickey Smiley's own Headkrack swoop in and show love for SFC and spit some ridiculous freestyles!

A huge THANK YOU to the Sickle Cell Foundation of Georgia for sending guest speaker Tiereny Bell to speak about the ins and out of this disease. It can only be inherited if both parents carry the trait and their child has a 1 in 4 chance off being born with Sickle-Cell. Raising awareness is so important for our community and spreading this type of knowledge is driven in SFC's mission. We will partner again, at the next cypher to provide free trait testing.

Our next Cypher is happening the week before Halloween so get ready to be terrified and horrified by these BARS! RSVP today for October 25th at WonderRoot Community Center.
