Releases:[The Hunger's Back] [Pressure : The Mixtape : Hosted by DJ Lopez] [Pressure] [Brainstormin' (EP)]
Info:SYD, pronounced as the letters "s-y-d", was raised in a christian home with strong values. Nonetheless, life was far from perfect. Born with a heart defect, SYD constantly battled his condition until the age of 16. In spite of his physical and spiritual needs, he ran from God rather than embracing him.

Surgery
SYD recounts: "After my last open-heart surgery while I was sitting in the hospital bed, I realized I couldnt keep running anymore. It was by his grace that I was even alive." From that moment onward, SYD turned his life over to Christs will.

Rooted
Nonetheless, SYD's musical origins were not always rooted in Christ. He first began dabbling with his gift while in middle school before becoming a christian. He and his brother formed a group called Dokside (pronounced Darkside) and recorded vocals over their favorite beats on an old tape recorder.

Hate
As time passed, his talent and interest in music grew. He joined a group called Holokost, using his skills for the very opposite purpose for which they were intended. A former gang member, SYD's lyrical content expressed his inner hate, anger, and despair. The group disbanded and SYD found himself under the tutelage of a local DJ both musically and spiritually.

La Familia
Soon after, he was introduced to fellow La Familia artist Carlito P. The two MCs created the group Caribbean Outreach and began performing in small local venues. Finally, the group, now renamed S.O.W. (Seeds of Worship) added male vocalist Ryan Horton. The group disbanded in 2005 though all three members are current solo artists under La Familia Muzik.

Listening
Combining the reggae influences of his island background with the hip-hop sound he learned by listening to artists such as Nas and Jay-Z, SYD offers the best of both worlds.

Power
Even more importantly within his music, SYD offers the hope of Christ's redemptive power: "God is fulfilling his purpose in my life everyday whether through my music or just through my daily walk. My life is evidence of Gods mercy. Now, I'm taking the gift I've received and bringing it to those that I love, those that I've had to leave behind, and even to those that will only meet me behind a microphone."

Touring
He has shared the stage with artists such as KJ-52, Cross Movement, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Group 1 Crew, Lecrae, Flame, Trip Lee, Paul Wright, and DecembeRadio.

Mixtapes
SYD appeared on the La Familia mixtape: "Pressure" made by DJ Lopez. The free mixtape is released in March 2007.
