There is no question that some of the keys to success in this world include hard work, dedication and perseverance; and it is these skills that Toronto-born hip-hop/R&B artist Syph has been mastering during the preparation of his long-awaited debut Rookie of the Year.
With catchy hooks, clever wordplay, and street smart lyrics, Syph uses his music to tell both the tales of life’s hardships and shortcomings along with the triumphs of true hard work and dedication. Influenced by the likes of 50 Cent, Wu-Tang and early-Lil Wayne amongst others – Syph is ready to put his mark on game in hopes of one day becoming a household staple.
“I grew up surrounded by music,” says Syph about his childhood. “My dad being a drummer, my mom singing and always playing the classics; the Michael Jackson’s, The Isley’s, the Al Green’s – my sisters always into the R&B; Jodeci, New Edition, Baby Face , stuff like that – so music played a big role in my household.” A role he says spawned his idea and helped fuel his creativity.
Syph’s work ethic is unparalleled – and his growth thus far musically in the time leading up to his debut is a true testament to that. Syph’s strong songwriting capability and infections melodies have allowed him to gain the attention of thousands – a number he plans on increasing to the millions.
“People have been waiting a while for Rookie of the Year and some even say I’m taking too long, but this music is a lot more important to me than people may think,” says Syph. “but when all is said and done, people will understand what the wait was for.”
