MC Syze is a Malaysian rapper, entertainer, & producer. He's also had a stint as a radio personality and regularly does voice-acting gigs.
A veteran of the local scene, Syze is known first & foremost as a hip-hop artist of the highest calibre.
After 16 years of being an active recording artist in the Malaysian music landscape, he's decided to embark on a new chapter in his career & leverage the knowledge & wisdom gained from his time in the local urban scene and start his own label - Trigger Happy Records.
The first project coming from this exciting fully-independent label is MC Syze's own album - Syze Does Matter.
The lead single of this record is ATCL (A Thing Called Love) which debuted on 9th July 2020 and has garnered over 130,000 unique plays in nearly 50 countries including USA, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Singapore & of course, Malaysia. All this, without so much as a publicist, distribution deal or even professional management of any sort.
The following single, Selamba features local hip-hop stalwart & DefJam Southeast Asia's current president himself - Joe Flizzow. Selamba has won over fans & critics alike & is on it's way to becoming a cultural milestone in Malaysian Music. The music video is directed by ATG who's been making waves in the local scene providing visuals for prominent Malaysian creatives like Zamaera & Luqman Podolski.
To truly encapsulate the truly multicultural appeal of Syze Does Matter, the record also boasts a Tamil banger slated for a Thaipusam release featuring a mammoth of the local Tamil scene - Psychomantra. The song, called Salasalapu addresses social ills & focuses on propagating a positive narrative and will have a fully animated video by Chennai-based, Kensmen Film Squad.
Syze also featured in Joe Flizzow's hit barbershop cypher series - 16 Baris, where he turned the heads of new listeners and old fans alike with his head-bobbing boom-bap verse that brought Malaysian rap to new levels.
Mainstream radio listeners will remember his chart-topping hit, Dancin' which charted for more than a year and the evergreen track remains an absolute anthem.
Syze along with Malaysian Urban Scene giant, DJ Biggie and rapper Dan Shiv produced Harimau Malaya (Black & Yellow Remix) the anthem for the Malaysian football team that still gets plays on national radio whenever the Malaysian football team wins.
An established performer, Syze outperforms most rappers in Malaysia with his stage presence and sheer charisma. He's opened for Kanye West (USA) in Kuala Lumpur, Missy Elliot (USA) in Genting Highlands, Nas (USA) in Bangkok, The Roots (USA) in Bukit Kiara and numerous other international Hip-Hop juggernauts throughout his 16 year career. Syze has even performed in a maximum security prison in Jakarta, Indonesia called Cipinang Penitentiary Institution in a first-of-its-kind anti-drug Hip-Hop show that showcased artists from all over Southeast Asia.
Since then he's been involved behind the scenes harnessing his producing chops and fine-tuning his song-making artistry, gaining producing credits on hits like I Never Lied - MC Syze, Champagne Mazhaituligal - Dan $hiv & others. Developing as a multi-dimensional artist, Syze is more than just a rapper, he is a Creative Force
