FLVR: Give the little people a lil history of Sy Ari how you have come this far, being on KCamp’ s Slum Lords, and becoming a big part of ATL hiphop?
I started off battle rapping, the learned how to produced and record on my own. Started on the north side of Atlanta, same place k camp is from which is why we were slum lords together. I feel responsible for being one of the people to put the north side on the map.
FLVR: You have become one of the best songwriters of this generation, explain how you are changing music and talk about ur new single “TLC”?
I think its all the practice I’ve put also knowing my sound and challenging myself to try new things with my voice. TLC was a record i wrote and co produced. Didn’t expect it to blow up the way it did. But now I get it. Learning what the people wanna hear is key. What words and melodies work.
FLVR: Is there any Artists or Producers you wanna do work with on the West Coast?
Kendrick, Doctor Dre and Nipsey Hustle are musical gods in opinion extremely dope. I respect them to the fullest
FLVR: 2016 Plans, News, Tours, Albums, Mixtapes, Projects?
My “B4 the heartbreak” album pretty much. thats all I’m focused on
