Brooklyn rapper Siya has cycled through multiple styles over the past few years, trying on everything from post-Drake saccharin to trap-inspired club fare. Still, she is perhaps best-known as one of the stars of Oxygen's reality show Sisterhood of Hip Hop, where one of her primary storylines finds her determined to carve a lane for herself as a rapper who happens to be gay.
But Siya's latest release, the deceptively no-frills "My Sons," is her most compelling yet. The song is only two minutes long — a point of criticism for fans commenting on YouTube — and is built around a repetitive refrain. There's something about her straight-forward flow over the ominous, ice-cold beat that feels especially undeniable; I wouldn't be surprised, for instance, if it sparked a chain of unofficial remixes and SoundCloud freestyles. Watch the video above, if only to spot the dude who milly rocks his way through a dice game.
