Siya

By Jack Barnes

A star of Oxygen’s Sisterhood of Hip Hop, Siya has already captured national attention, mostly by bullying tracks with her aggressive yet conversational flow. In the run up to her upcoming debut album SIYAvsSIYA, the Bed-Stuy native shows her versatility with the somber “I Know I Know.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.

Opening with solemn piano, the track fills in with a rumbling bass and the distant clap of snares, allowing Siya to demonstrate a more laid back side of her. Even in her more relaxed state Siya is realer than most, promising those who want to be a thug that she’ll send them back where they came from.  “I Know I Know” follows up the more sinister “My Sons,” a boastful track dedicated to Siya’s squad premiered by Mass Appeal, as the second single off of SIYAvsSIYA, releasing December 9th.

A versatile 16-track effort , SIYAvsSIYA finds the Brooklyn native rhyming in many styles. Over the Brooklyn-style noir-ish boom-bap of “Body” and “OMD” to the dreamlike electronics on “Only You,” Siya proves that she can go toe-to-toe with the best rappers in New York City. Signed to RnB Money, run by R&B icon Tank, and distributed through EMPIRE, Siya is the latest in a line of successful Bedford-Stuyvesant rappers, following such luminaries as The Notorious B.I.G., Lil Kim, and Mos Def. Though Siya is not yet on that level, SIYAvsSIYA demonstrates her boundless potential and magnetic personality.

Born in California to a drug-addicted mother, Siya re-located to Brooklyn with her father when she was seven. Soon after moving, her father was arrested and sentenced to life in prison. Raised by her grandmother who fought in vain to keep her off the streets, Siya encountered legal trouble that landed her in prison, where she discovered her passion for rapping. After her release, Siya moved to Atlanta, where she caught the attention of Tank, who immediately took her under his wing. In 2012, Siya and Tank released the collaborative D.Y.K.E., its title track receiving over 50,000 downloads on iTunes. In 2014, Siya became the breakout star of Oxygen‘s T.I.-produced The Sisterhood of Hip-Hop reality show starring five female rappers who navigate their way through the male-dominated music industry. Behind the scenes clips of the making of SIYAvsSIYA appeared on the most recent season of Sisterhood. Her most recent single, “New York,” premiered on Billboard in July.
