Born on the South side of Chicago, SAYYI has hustled his way from the streets to the music industry, with co-writing credits on multiple hit singles including DJ Khaled’s “Hold You Down” and Rihanna’s “Woo” from her album ANTI. He was inspired to begin his musical journey after spending his teenage years in Africa – a decision made by his parents to keep him away from the violence in Chicago. He honed his songwriting skills as a student at Columbia College in Chicago, alongside his friend Jeremih. By 2014, he was touring, performing, and songwriting with the R&B superstar internationally. SAYYI, who currently lives in L.A., has begun the next chapter in his music career as a solo artist with Suretone Entertainment.
