Siyah
"SIYAH (a backronym for Strugglin' Improves Your Ambitious Hustle) is a lyricist and Hip-Hop artist whose aim is to promote positivity in his message, honesty in his storytelling and originality in his composition. Originally from Oakland, SIYAH spent summers in Los Angeles until his permanent move to the Carolinas. He currently dwells along the eastern seaboard in Asheville, North Carolina where he’s taken to the craft of songwriting and performing at a local level.

The goal of his music is to preserve the artistry of hip hop by returning to lyrical traditions in the rap genre. As he pursues a career in music, he wants to be more than a persona, seeking to be true to himself, as a man of faith, family and community.


Self development, above everything, is paramount to his work. " - Yahsmin M. B. BoBo
P.T.P.
Lyrically potent, exceptionally dynamic, fresh, and forthright - P.T.P aka Peter the Poet is a Manhattan-based emcee on the rise.

His music has been featured internationally on both American and European Hip-Hop blogs, most notably on The Cypher Effect, GRNDGD, Grown Up Rap, Adramatic, and Grind Mode Cypher. Known for his intensely crafted flows, soulful singing voice, and intrepid stage presence - P.T.P is blazing a trail in the game, championing multi-dimensional wordcraft and musicality in Hip-Hop.

His music bridges the gap between poets, songwriters, and Hip-Hop purists - earning him comparisons to legends such as Andre 3000, Aesop Rock, and Eminem. Always developing, always grinding, always pushing the craft forward - P.T.P is one to watch.

Support your local artists! Be the change you want to see!
