The Shadow In The Shade’s latest single “Press 0” featuring Benny The Butcher had HotNewHipHop claiming “He has a knack for timing and cadences, varying the placement of words in ways that make even his simpler statements stand out.” While 2Dopeboyz declared “Sy Ari Da Kid can do it all.” A music video for “Unbreakable Promises” featuring Jadakiss will premiere on March 24th followed by visuals for “Darkness In The Abyss” featuring Mickey Factz and “The New Preemo & Guru.” Moreover, Atlanta based youtube channel 4ShootersOnly partnered with Sy Ari Da Kid to film a visual for album track “Timeless Clocks” to feature on their performance series From The Block.

Fans of Sy Ari Da Kid are familiar with how versatile his sound is and equally crave his deep hip hop cuts just as much as they do his R&B infused projects such as the Heartbreak series. At the heart of it, he’s a battle rapper who started his career straight out of high school, but what he’s most notable for is his striking lyricism and collaborating with some of the most talented artists in the industry.
Since he began rapping professionally, Sy Ari Da Kid has garnered over millions of listeners across the world, something he knew would happen growing up between the Bronx and Atlanta. While in Atlanta, he began to work on the songwriting side before releasing his debut project Ultrasound in 2011 and since then he’s delivered projects like S.O.O.N, Better Safe Than Sy Ari, B4 the Heartbreak, and Alone but Not Lonely and boasts over 32 million streams on his standout single “TLC”. He completely opened his R&B audience with collaborations from Bryson Tiller on “Priorities” but now, he’s returning to his hip hop roots as he’s been preparing to release his album The Shadow In The Shade. “I’ve been working on my true hip hop album The Shadow In The Shade for a while now,” he explains. “Even though I have dropped other projects, I have had this one in the works for a long time now for my rap fans.”
Sy Ari Da Kid has been going strong, dropping a solid discography fueled with impressive bars and witty wordplay and 2022 seems to be his best year yet. He’s already dropped tracks like “Timeless Clocks”, “Lock the Bottom Lock”, along with the visuals to “Poverty Paintings” and we can expect his new project to include features from Benny the Butcher, Jadakiss, T.I., Raekwon, Big Krit, Cyhi The Prynce, Ransom, JR Writer, Aye Verb, Mickey Factz, Shawn Ellery, Trouble, Bumpy Knuckles, and Lloyd Banks. On “Press 0”, he links with Benny the Butcher to talk the experience of getting a phone call from a loved one who is locked up while “Unbreakable Promises” with Jadakiss is more of a message to his fans reminding them that no matter what they speak on the track, it’s always the truth. “I used the shadow in the shade as a metaphor for the thing you know is there, but has always been kept in the shade,” he says of the album. Continuing by saying “Knowing if it got the same spotlight as others, the entire world would see it”. Along with the album, Sy Ari plans to share visuals to the Jadakiss assisted “Unbreakable Promises” as well as visuals to “Darkness to the Abyss” with Mickey Factz.
His use of brazen, yet vulnerable lyrics makes for a relatability that is as tangible as his real following. From performing in London to cities across the US, there’s no telling what’s next for Sy Ari Da Kid, but what is for sure is that he’s going to keep releasing good music.
