I had the pleasure of interviewing a great artist on the verge of blowing up; Sy Ari Da Kid — originally from the Boogie Down Bronx, but a resident of Atlanta for the last 17 years — stopped by to let me know what hes been working on, who hes been working with, and the craziest things that a few of his fans did.
When did you first become interested in the pursuit of Hip-Hop?
My brother would listen to wu tang 24/7 and him, my cousin, and I would freestyle alot so during middle school I began to try it out. I began to love it eventually.
If you could describe your style of music in one word, what would it be and why?
Me!!! No matter what type of beat is i am myself. saying something i have lived or done every song — non fiction.
Are you currently signed? Or, are you strictly independent at this point in time?
What projects do you have in the works? Who are you working with? would you like to work with in the future?
I’m really just pushing my new single “popular” ft. K. Camp produced by KATO of SMKA. I’m also pushing My solo project “The Birth” & a project i did with Freddie Foxxx AKA Bumpy Knuckles titled “Wisdom & Strength.” I want to work with anyone that’s on my level or higher and has a passion for music. All of them.
Who are you listening to right now?
Everybody! There is something dope in every artist.
What’s the craziest thing a fan has done to or for you?
A female? F*ck the whole team. A Male? When Dae Dae and I went to Nova Scotia, Canada, a few of the fans told us from the jump that if we had any problems they would shoot the person for us…lol. We were like, “nah B we good. hold those bullets.”
Anything in closing? Shout outs?
