Over this past holiday weekend, one of Atlanta's most promising and talented young emcees passed away, S.H.Y. Nasa NY. Some of us at Soul Food Cypher only had the pleasure of knowing him for a short while, but to all of us he left a lasting mark of friendship, love & endless energy & passion for the love of emceeing. Not only was he as skilled on the mic & in the cypher, but SHY lit up the ones around him, no matter where with his smile, enthusiasm, and love for life. SHY was a king amongst kings, a brother, friend, son, and so much more to all you had the chance to meet him across his path. We pray for his family, friends and loved ones at this moment and forever remember him in our cyphers, our hearts, and our lives. Thank you, S.H.Y.
E LU keeps the rhymes switching like grandmomma told you to get one off the tree. One of the more expensive freestyles you'll never pay for, E LU's critical syllables keep the turn tables pivotal and the surround sound digital.
Bright Son uses his weapon of choice in the cypher: the sledgehammer. With socially responsible bars about the things that have his community under attack, Bright Son makes his enemies do a double take.
One-third of the hip-hop squadron, Subconscious, and a dedicated SFC member, Sha'lil demonstrates creativity by reimagining 'All Gold Everything' with witty freestyle. It's safe to say his bars are also gold. Make sure you join in when everyone goes 'POP'!
MICxSIC starts up the race with energy, wit and style. NGTVZRO takes the torch, and runs with it. With extended drug metaphors, are these MC's bars 'dope' enough? Hopefully, the rhymes weren't 'drug' out for too long.
NGTVZRO of Air Haze lays a humorous onslaught of lazy rhymes for J Sound to take, when suddenly, Sha'lil pulls up the ceiling mixing. Is it a coincidence that these two MCs have no ceiling in their rhyme's creativity? Doesn't proclaiming similarity make ZRO different?
