Kyrey Bryan (born January 31, 1989), better known by the stage name Sikai, is an American rapper based in Stamford, Connecticut. He has released three projects to date. He has a large fan base in both the Tri-State area and New England areas.

Sikai (The Sick 1)[edit]

Connecticut based rapper & song writer Sikai brings his own world and words to life with charisma and originality; whether “heart-felt” or “have-fun” music he has become the go-to guy. Recording since he was eleven years old, Sikai has shown much growth on every project since, and although very much independent has gained a natural following and initial fan base with a promise of more listeners to come.

Opening up for acts such as Serani, J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, and Jim Jones allows the dream to meet reality. Sikai has also received radio play on New York’s very own Power 105.1, one of the biggest radio stations in the tri-state area to date. An appearance that then landed him a spot on a Power 105.1 mixtape released this year entitled “The New NY” hosted by Power 105.1’s own DJ Suss.One and Jovann The Last Don. Sikai has since performed at many different college events, local, and out of town venues.


Musical Career[edit]

2009: Gooney Tunes Vol. 1[edit]

A street mixtape released April 3rd 2009 as a creative spin off from the cartoon “Looney Toons”; Hosted by DJ Rated R, DJ Diggz, and DJ Blaze with artwork by Kid Eight. This project displays Sikai’s ability to rhyme over gritty and rugged tracks such as “Workin” & “Automatic”, but still keeps him in his element on songs like “Like A Star”, “60 Seconds”, & “Crowd Gone Wild”.

His lyrical ability is very much present on this one. We also hear playful records like “Girl You Know” & “Higher” where Sikai utters funny but slick lines throughout these essential tracks. Gooney Tunes Vol. 1 has accumulated much attention leading to Sikai’s current college bookings and venue performances throughout the tri-state area. Sikai explains the mixtape as a fun project that is not to influence any image of a “Goon” whatsoever, but more so to indicate that in music versatility and being able to fit into character is what creates longevity and diversity in this industry.

2010: O.P.B. (Other People's Beats) and The College Tour[edit]

During this time Sikai released a mixtape in the middle part of 2010, titled O.P.B. (Other People's Beats), hosted by Joey Franchize of Hot 93.7. Sikai acknowledges both facts on this project participating in taking his own direction on the hottest released songs of this time. A spin off from Naughty By Nature’s “O.P.P.” (Other People’s Property) record released in 1991, Sikai actually starts off riddling rhymes over that very instrumental on the intro to set the mood. The mixtape displays Sikai’s versatility once again to have a positive outcome on any beat. The initial feel of the project is one of an artist who’s just having fun with day to day recording, but also setting his mark in hip-hop.

During the early to middle part of 2010, Sikai participated in a College tour that included big name colleges and universities such as: UConn, Rutgers University, Northeastern University, University of Rhode Island, and UMass Amherst. During this period of time Sikai gained a large following in the New England area.

2010: Shoulda Been An Album[edit]

A mix album released September 18th, 2010. Sikai shows his uncanny ability to produce album standard material, and epitomizes today's renaissance artist that can create a buzz for themselves without a major label behind them. This album was released as a mixtape and an album. Set to release on the Billboard Charts in the later part of 2010.

With today’s typical “rap artist” being labeled and pressed in the minds of the listeners, Sikai’s main goal is to change their outlook. This project allows Sikai to differentiate himself and gain new attention. He separates himself from that of a mixtape artist, bringing you album standard material as done many times in the past, but the difference now is that these songs have been constructed into an official project titled “The Shoulda Been An Album Mixtape”.

Sikai is able to tell his very own story and bring a brand new edge and personality to hip-hop music. The new sound allows listeners to relate to him very easily. Coming in rather smoothly on his intro song entitled “It Was All A Dream”, Sikai starts off by saying “I work hard, please tell me I’m your favorite!” There is always the belief that hard work pays off, and anyone with dreams and goals in life can appreciate realistic lines like these. More is explained in terms of what is learned in life and the music business along the way in the project.

Sikai speaks on the new-found fame, lost friendships, and compromises, but also puts a spin on things with tracks like Tick (Clock Me In). It’s a reminder that making music is fun to the artist and that there are also many ups in relationship to the downs. Sikai succeeds in his lyrical efforts and creates a project that undoubtedly “shoulda” been an album.
