The Backyard Cypher Series Vol. 1 "The Intro" says
An interactive spoken word & hip-hop exhibition by Spread Art 3-Month Residency award recipient Walter "The Soul" Lacy aka Soul Emcee Detroit.

Walter "The Soul" Lacy/Soul Emcee Detroit is a poet, spoken word, and underground hip-hop artist born & raised in Detroit's Freedom Place Townhouses. He has work featured in publications such FOKUS Insight Magazine, Faith Driven Magazine, and The Periphery Magazine. He was a contributor to the book Looping Detroit: A People Mover Travelogue (University of Michigan Library, 2016).

"The Soul" has performed for several years, opening for acts such as Saul Williams (with student hip-hop collective The Cypher), Dwele, and Freeway, among others. He is dedicated to using hip-hop and performing arts as a vehicle for expression, community service/engagement, and to inspire others through the power of language. With that in mind, "The Intro" will conclude with a freewriting exercise/workshop, an open mic, and cypher to give YOU an authentic experience- making the audience apart of the performance.

*This exhibition follows the Artist in Residency Dinner that begins at 6pm. Both events are FREE & OPEN to the public.

Emcees, Poets, Musicians, Artists, B-boys/b-girls, and all DETROITERS invited & encouraged to attend!!!
