Introducing Hip-Hop fused with Dancehall artist Ray Sytes, a soon to be well known artist, whose blend of both genres is sure to lure you in. Having collaborated with hit producers who've worked with superstars like Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Talib Kweli, and 50 Cent, as well as recording a song with multi-platinum recording artist T-Pain entitled "Everybody Else", Ray Sytes is determined to put Hip- Hop on the map for Guyana.
"Welcome To The Far South" is Sytes' official mixtape series, with the most recent release of his first installment entitled "Tote My Flag." Sytes' mixtape includes a blend of Hip-Hop and Dancehall, featuring established artists featured on his project. Ray Sytes isn't just doing music for his fans, but for his country as well.
"We have many talented artists in R&B, Reggae, Dancehall, and Soca but not in Hip-Hop, so I’m filling that void," says Ray Sytes.
Originally from Georgetown, Guyana at a very early age, Sytes relocated to the States where he found a love for music other than Dancehall... Hip-Hop. Living in Flatbush, Brooklyn, Ray Sytes gained knowledge of rhyming and writing then moved to Queens where he now resides. With a large success rate of artists coming from the Tri-State Area like Biggie, Nas, and Jay-Z, Ray Sytes has an opportunity he won't let slip through.
"Tote My Flag," features a remix of the hit "Star Bwoy," with Jamaican musician Mavado, as well as features including Choppa Zoe, Clova, DJ Lantan and many more. With 5 singles doing well on iTunes, you can anticipate Ray Sytes' upcoming mixtape "Welcome To Guyana", the second episode in his "Welcome To The Far South" series.
