We all know Siya from the hit tv show Sisterhood of Hip-Hop, but now the lyrical brooklyn spitter has finally dropped her debut album titled “Siya vs. Siya” on Tank’s label RnB Money. Features include Sage The Gemini, Lyric Wright, Ashley Rose, Jake & Papa, and Kreesha Turner. Check for “The One”, “Weight Up”, “Watch What You Say”, and “New York, New York.” We can tell she took her time crafting this project and attempts to show her versatility, especially since we know she will be compared to the other brooklyn stud Young M.A.
“I wanted to show that I am my only competition,” she says. “I’m a firm believer in you becoming your worst enemy over time. I think everyday as human beings we wake up with a chip on our shoulders someway somehow, trying to overcome the struggles that we’re going through.”
