Siya – “Better” [Video]

Siya

By Jack Barnes

Equal parts sensitive and rough-edged, Brooklyn emcee Siya subtly shifts between hard-nosed boom-bap and spacey R&B. Confidently navigating triumphant horn blasts and booming bass, Siya shares her satisfaction with her life situation on Better,” her latest video single. In the HipHopDX-premiered video, Siya swaps the concrete jungle of her native Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood for a sun-drenched poolside, showcasing her captivating charisma as she mugs for the camera.  Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

Featuring an inspirational audio clip from fellow Bed-Stuy native Jay-Z, “Better” is a formidable single from 383 – For Roosevelt, Siya’s latest project. An ode to the people and places in her neighborhood that helped her become the successful woman she is today, 383 – For Roosevelt is available everywhere.

An ode to her neighborhood and the people who helped her become the successful woman she is today, 383 – For Roosevelt is a deeply personal project and an impressively versatile piece of work. Packed with intimidating street anthems, such as the Elevator Magazine-premiered boom-bap banger Your Choice,” wistful love songs like Houston Girls,” featuring Kirko Bangz, and the bilingual banger Culture Vulture,” premiered last week by Mass Appeal383 – For Roosevelt showcases all facets of Siya’s talent and personality. Beyond music, Siya found success as a television personality, appearing in all three seasons as the breakout star of Oxygen’s Sisterhood of Hip-HopT.I.-produced reality series starring five female rappers who navigate their way through the male-dominated music industry. “383 is the apartment building I was raised in,” explained Siya to Genius, who premiered the album along with an in-depth interview. “Roosevelt is the name of the projects. I was raised there with my grandmother, and I kinda just wanted to do this for [the people in the Roosevelt Projects]. I wanted to give this to them and show my appreciation to the streets for helping me become the woman that I am.”
