Enter South Side. Cosign Presents Chicago’s one and only “Poet of the Ghetto”, Michael Washington. This elusive lyricist appears every so often in coffee shops or book stores to splatter the dark realities of life in the hood onto every open and willing mind. Watch as Washington hits with a double edged sword of raw and classic storytelling sprinkled with ironic metaphors and baneful imagery. If you find yourself in the South Side on a dark and snowy night, keep your ears open and you just might find the voice of poetic punch who has seen it all, and lived it all.
