Lucien Parker | 
Lucien Parker is a hip-hop artist from the South side of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Finding a passion for poetry and spoken word at a young age, Lucien made a name for himself throughout high school as a competitive slam poet and penned rhymes in his free time. Twice he was invited to be a member of the Minnesota International Slam Team that travelled to Brave New Voices, an international slam poetry competition. This earned Lucien acceptance into the First Wave Program at UW Madison, a hip-hop & spoken word scholarship for young creatives. His dual-delivery warbles between his rapping and singing which creates for an improvisational crooner-flow, each quick melodic turn and spate of exacting bars keeping the listener in the moment. Parker’s versatile voice provides warmth through his soulful, deep
==register, which he layers over sparse, drill beats. He used to just rap, but now says he prides his ability for making hooks and exploring melodic vocal layers.
