Chicago Artist, Sycosis offers a blistering lyrical assault on his new visual for “A.N.C.” (Aint Nobody Coming)
Chicago Hip-Hop artist, Sycosis or S.Y. for short, is one step to the left of the line for “ordinary rappers.” Combining “Conscious Rap” elements with aggressive delivery and hard hitting punch lines, Sycosis has a style that varies- but a message that stays consistent. Sycosis (psychosis) literally means a to be detached from reality and to hear and see things in your own mind, in their own way.
At age 4, Sycosis’ father went to prison, a traumatic experience which later became the emotional fuel he would need to write music starting at age 12. Nine years later, he became one of the first members of his family to graduate college. He returned to Chicago and continued working on new music while teaching and mentoring troubled youth from Chicago’s inner city schools and teaching adult education inside of the Cook County jail for the last for the last 10 years.
With two official Mixtapes in the “Think Twice” series, Sycosis set to establish himself as a legitimate professional with the 2010 release of the ”Mostly Me” album. A fitting title that he used to define who he wanted to be as an artist, bold, lyrical, diverse, and passionate. His second album entitled “Tri-Polar” aimed to take that goal to the next level with the release of 6 videos for tracks such as “My City”, “Black Whip”, and “Over Everything″. Sycosis proclaimed “On this album, you got to see all different sides of me as an artist, aggressive, intellectual, and easy going which is why I called it Tri-Polar.” Since officially releasing Tri-Polar on Halloween 2011 its tracks and videos have been featured on several blogs, global websites, internet and college radio stations. In addition, Sycosis has opened up for major artist such as Twista, Ying Yang Twins, Crooked I, MC Light, Crucial Conflict and more.
After being nominated as “Artist To Watch” in the 2012 Underground Music Awards NYC, Sycosis has been setting his own standards high. He followed that success with being nominated for “Hip-Hop Artist Of The Year” by the Midwest Urban Music Awards. In 2013 Sycosis was ranked the #1 Hip-Hop artist for Chicago from May-August on Reverbnation.
Today Sycosis’ music is being streamed globally in over 60 countries around the world. In January of 2015, he launched Gr8er Than Self Entertainment company with his partner LDorado Jonez. By the summer, Sycosis and LDorado Jonez embark on a new journey founding the “How The Midwest Was 1 Tour” uniting over 50 independent artists from across the region at major venues. From The Abbey In Chicago to the Roxy Theater in Denver, they built a bond and a brand simultaneously.
Sycosis proves his point visually
In 2016, Sycosis expanded his reach on the music scene landing several major placements on television. Songs like “Against The Wall” and “My City” has landed in spots like Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Law & Order SVU, Dude Perfect, Chozen, and Sunny Delight to name a few. He continued landing placements on international television networks leading into 2017 from ESPN to NBC while growing his brand and developing his craft.
2018 is poised to an even bigger landmark year with the release of the 3rd studio album “Mostly Me II”. After more than 6 years since the last full studio album, and 8 years since the original “Mostly Me”, Sycosis will make his return bringing his growth and development to the forefront with storytelling, music for the clubs, radio, and the streets. With his most diverse sound and well-rounded production to date, anticipation for the return is high.
