Oxygen's highest rated freshman docu-series Executve Proucd by T.I., "Sisterhood of Hip Hop" stars Siya an out lesbian
(New York, NY) -- An original in a sea of clones, reality television's newest breakout star, Siya, is representing her brand on the real, on the Oxygen Network's new hit series, "Sisterhood of Hip Hop." Known as "The Bed-Stuy Bully," Siya is an attractive, outspoken openly gay female rapper. In a field largely dominated by men, Siya, who grew up in the Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, NY, is a product of her environment, who spits her rhymes from experience. Her mother fought drug addiction, her father was convicted of a crime that sentenced him to lifetime incarceration and she herself was convicted of a crime at a young age, wherein she served her own time in a women's correctional facility. Indeed, in Siya's life, reality isn't just on television.
While on lockdown, Siya began honing her music talents, making people take notice. Upon her release, she headed for Atlanta to begin pursing music as her career. She performed in venues such as Compound, CW Loft and Masquerade, building a loud buzz on the scene, about her blazing hip-hop skills. Siya caught the attention of major labels and some well-known artists. That interest was largely hot air, as label heads were afraid of her, unsure of how to market an openly gay female rapper. But this didn't deter Siya, who remained determined and focused on her career choice, as she continued to kill at shows and make lasting impressions on audiences.
Eventually, an industry ally appeared, as R&B vocal legend Tank reached out to Siya after hearing about her burgeoning stardom. He offered to represent her and assist her with getting to the next level of her career. Siya journeyed to Los Angeles to begin her new career with Tank's guidance and encouragement. Tank, a unique talent himself, accepted Siya just as she is, and did not want her to change a thing about herself; he believed in her and wanted her to continue to be the "Bed-Stuy Bully." Their debut project together, "D.Y.K.E." featuring their collaboration track of the same title, has gained over 50 thousand downloads. Their alignment has proved to be beneficial to them both and is growing daily. The buzz is getting deafening.
Tank's determination to get Siya into a bigger arena led him to reach out to any and all of his industry contacts, for opportunities. The stars aligned when Atlanta's hip-hop superstar, T.I., contacted Tank when he was seeking to fill a spot for Oxygen's freshman reality series about five aspiring female rappers ("femcees"), called "Sisterhood of Hip Hop," which he was Executive Producing. She's a reality tv star now, yes, and they don't come much "REALER" than Siya.
