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.
In the fall of 2015 he released the Take A Breath EP and signed to management company Strange Oasis Entertainment. The project earned him an opening slot on the 11-date “Next Gen Tour” with headliner Wave Chapelle which saw Lucien Parker touring around the country at just 18 years old. In the spring of 2016 he embarked on the “Breakfast Tour” with Mic Kellogg which hit 6 cities around the Midwest, all while balancing a full-time education and mixing/mastering his fellow students records for extra cash on the side. Lucien Parker released his debut full-length LP, Black Sheep on June 15, 2016.
