Representing Vaughn, on the outskirts of Toronto, is an artist with the ability to stand head and shoulders above the ever-growing Canadian Hip Hop Community. Syntifik has all the qualities of a complete emcee; a distinctive drawly flow, strong lyrical prowess, fluid and structured song-writing ability, a deep-rooted spiritual grounding, and most importantly the ability to reach people through music. “What I speak is real, so you thirstin’ to listen.”
Syntifik (pronounced Scientific) has experienced quite a lot in the last year. His first single, the catchy “The Arrival”, burned up T.O. radio during the 2nd quarter of 2002 and earned him a spot on Flow 93.5 “Blazin New Joints” charts one week after its commercial release. He followed that up with the 2nd single, “Trickin”. The DJ Serious produced track has made a big splash, helping to shake-off the sophomore jinx that usually comes with the follow-up single. His soon to be finished E.P., “The World I Live In”, has already received distribution with one of the hottest indies doing it right now, ’nuff Entertainment. Combine that with grants from both Factor and Videofact and you’ve got a pretty good rookie campaign for the young rapper.
“The Arrival”, produced by Soze out of the Hustlemann crew, spending a few months in rotation on Toronto’s Flow 93.5 and at its peak was one of the stations most highly requested Canadian tracks. Syntifik’s flow and charisma matched perfectly with featured artist Diamond’s smooth and precise vocals. That was the single that put the city on notice, Syntifik was a player in the rap game.
