Born and raised in Southeast San Diego, D-sypha, started as a poet that would write about his home and everything that happened in it. D-sypha(Syph)always had a love for hip hop; which evolved into him becoming the lyricist he is today. Rather than taking the mainstream approach, D-sypha was heavy in the San Diego battle scene. Known heavily for his wittyness and punchlines, D-sypha found himself battling due to lack of opportunity for studios. The love of hip hop had him in every cipher and battle just to stay active in what he loves. Now D-sypha returns to the mic with a vengeance and passion to show the world what hip hop is.
