SIYA Interview | Ikons Magazine - The Groundbreaking Lesbian Magazine

SIYA Interview | Ikons Magazine - The Groundbreaking Lesbian Magazine | SIYA | Scoop.it
IKONS Magazine: Tell us about Siya who is she ?
SIYA: Siya the Infamous Siya, just another [girl] from Brooklyn, Bed Stuy. Trying to make it out the hood you feel me! I’ve been rapping since I was 7, officially 22. [I'm] about to be 23 on my grown sh**, lol! I’m young as fcuk, lol!!

 

IM: Who are some people that influenced you and why ?
S: A lot of people ask me that, they automatically expect me to say a rapper. But I love, [just] love Aaliyah! She influenced me a lot. How young she came out & she came out on [some] “I’m going to do me” type sh**. She was crazy talented. Uh, of course Hov (Jay-Z), Biggie. To me that’s appreciating some of Brooklyn. You know how I have to say that! [The] old school you know, Mc Lyte, Queen Latifah, a lil bit of Wu. Anything inspires me. Anything that I [have] been through [and] everything that I’m still going through. My hood inspires me. Sitting on this bench inspires me, know what I mean ?

 

IM: Who or what made u say, “Yeah this what I want to do. I want to be an MC” ?
S: I think the first artist was Bone Thugs & Harmony, I used to sit in front of the (Goddamn) TV you know , actin’ like was Bizzy & them (niggas) lol lightskinned haha(cracksup), out in Cali that’s when I was still in Cali & shit before I moved out here . So they definitely had a lot of influence over me actually as far as me sitting down saying, “this what I want to do”. What I’m saying this is a passion of mine. This ain’t some [stuff] I do just to do. I breathe this [stuff and] a lot of people don’t understand it.

If you haven't heard of Siya, prepare yourself for something new. I hate to box people in with comparisons but this one is so glaring that you can't help but at least make a tiny reference. *Ahem* She's like a female Wiz Khalifa. Now, unbox her and open your mind, ears and heart to 'Elevator Dreams'.

Maurice Garland: World-Renown, Locally-Respected Writer, Photographer. Tastemaker and Lifestylist: INBOXication: Siya | SIYA | Scoop.it

So, INBOXication got alot of positive feedback yesterday, so why not keep it going full throttle.

 

Right around the time I was working on yesterday's post, the homie Kei of Lavish Life Social Club hit me to get my opinion on this new artist she's working with named Siya. I'd seen a few twits about Siya here and there but never just felt compelled to investigate. I mean, who just goes exploring what other folks on Twitter are talking about all the time? Granted, the convos are on public display, but at the end of the day, it is still kinda their business.
