'Wire' actor to appear at Baltimore anti-bullying rally

An anti-bullying event being planned by Baltimore City Councilman Nick J. Mosby will feature a performance by an actor from "The Wire."

Tray Chaney will perform his new anti-bulling rap "Mike Bully" at the the third annual Stamp Out Bullying Conference on Oct. 27 at Coppin State University, an event also sponsored by Empowering Minds of Maryland's Youth.

"This is one of the most important topics for today's youth that must be addressed by the entire community," Mosby said in a statement. "I am happy to partner with Empowering Minds of Maryland's Youth and Coppin State University to bring more awareness to the topic, and to work with community members and youth to find creative ways to combat it."  
The event will feature emcee 92Q's Porkchop, and a performance by Chaney, who fans of "The Wire" will recognize as Poot, a corner dealer. In real life, the Maryland-based Chaney is an aspiring hip-hop artist, married and a father.

The event will also feature panel discussions on bullying and opportunities for young people to talk about things like cyber-bullying and ways to resolve conflicts.

The conference will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. People who want to go need to register by calling 1-888-416-4637 or online at
