"El Salvador" Mixtape By Siah

"Drugs Laced With Depression" Mixtape



Siah is a Rapper born and raised in Middletown CT. 6'0 Tall with quite the noticeable face, Siah has always been the type to stand out in a crowd. He developed a passion for music early on in his life, writing his first lyrics in first grade, and his first full song in third grade. He has developed a sound many would call a mix between Drake and Nas. His music takes on many issues he has seen in society (such as gun violence, and teen drug abuse) as well as lyrics that speak of relate-able experiences everyone deals with. With such a passion for live performances, Siah makes sure to include as much upbeat music in his projects as possible in order to assure that when performing live, he gets the crowd moving. Siah has performed in front of many schools, in many talent shows, and even on the radio, starting back in third grade. In early 2015 , Siah was selected to compete against the top underground hip-hop artists in America at the "TeamBackPack MULA 2015 cyper draft". In 8th grade, with the help of a few friends, he formed the hip-hop collective "IBGY"; the Intelligent Bold Gifted Youth. After spending months putting together his debut mixtape,"El Salvador", in late 2014, during his sophomore year in high school, he released it early January of 2015. It was very well recieved by the state of Connecticut, and it has made its way around the New England area. Now, Siah and IBGY are working together on the debut IBGY collective project; "The Chronicles of IBGY", set to release late 2015. Siah has finished and released his second solo project, and it was well received. He is currently finishing up his third project "Jordan Of Rap", and there is much anticipation for it. He built this his fan base dropping a song every Saturday, and started a trend back home #SiahSaturdays, and it ended up catching on all across the US, as well as dropping the lead single, "Siah Shuffle", which blew up and just got him more attention for the tape. Now, I know what you're thinking,"How can we select this kid for our show/ festival if he has no festival experience, and no gigs listed?!?!". Well, for those of you asking that question, here's one for you, How am I going to gain that experience if you don't give me the opportunity?
