"Whole Lotta / Dirty Bird" marks the beginning of a big year for Missussauga rapper SYPH — in 2017, he'll release an EP and appear on Meek Mill's Dreamchasers 4.5 mixtape. His new music video, premiering today on The FADER, is a tour of his Canadian hometown. It's two songs in one: "Whole Lotta" has a beat that recalls Zaytoven and Travis Scott, an ode to flexing that sees SYPH cruising around town. As the sun sets, the clip segues into "DirtyBird," where SYPH and his crew don balaclavas and pull donuts in Bentleys as snow falls gently in an apartment complex's parking lot.
"It was important for me to bring it back home and let everyone know that Mississsauga (Sauga City) is here to stay," SYPH told The FADER over email. "I take great pride in putting on for my city."
