Syd Da Kyd
Updated: Jul 16, 2018
Wow long time since I've blogged here about some music. So I want to make up for it and present an artist called Syd the Kyd. She is part of an amazing, young hip-hop collective OFWGKTA (A if you don't know what that stands for, take you head out of your ass). They're basically a bunch of Cali-skater kids who are embarrassingly talented. They range from the lucid, smooth tones of Frank Ocean, the sincere story-like lyrics of Syd to the acerbic, yet brutally beautiful raps of Tyler, The Creator (the leader and creative drive in the group).
I wanted to show Syd because I think that she represents a very undiscovered talent. Whilst Tyler is talented he seems to be getting enough attention. Also I love the artistic and cultural eclecticism within the group itself (A lesbian creating the beats for a homophobe...apparently) But as Tyler says: "Fuck it, it's art. Just listen to the fucking story."
Oh...listen to this, headphones in, full volume...the bass:
