Pick up a mixtape on any East Coast circuit and you’re likely to see Sic Osyrus on the track listing. Hungry to make it big, the Philly native has hit the underground, the Net, and everywhere in between in an ongoing effort to feed his appetite. On his new song, Why Lord, Osyrus flips the script, though, questioning his moves and wondering if his grind is in vain. Despite garnering nominations for several mixtape awards and earning praise from his hip hop peers, the money can cause problems. Fellow hustler Donny Goines also expresses his anguish over producer Khysis‘s soulful 70’s sampled beat. Sic-O-Nomics 2.5, Osyrus’s new project, is set for an October release date.
