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.

Decatur Book Festival Performance

Members of the crowd, including emcee prodigy Amauri the Great and Patrick aka Star Bar hopped in to make it a truly unforgettable experience.

Soul Food Cypher at Wonderroot: July

Man, oh man, this month’s Cypher was one for the record books! By 6:20pm we had the biggest circle of Emcees so far this year. Keeping the beat and energy at peak, DJ Frost rocked the house with his smooth blend of instrumentals. Also adding to this month’s soundscape, producer LV the Aura dropped some new hotness for our Wordplay segment. We also unveiled a brand new segment, Running Numbers. Lastly, we announced next month’s writing assignment: In recognition of Labor Day, write 16 bars and a hook on what you do for work or how you get work. RSVP today for our next cypher August 23rd and get ready for more bars, punchlines, and the best lyricism in Atlanta!
