We talked with hip-hop artist SIYAH (Isa Whitaker) this month on That's So Asheville. The conversation spans everything from SIYAH's origin story (and what his name means)to his identity as Muslim, his deep respect for the legacy of hip hop, and his upcoming performance as part of the free Pritchard Park Singer/Songwriter series (next Thursday, 7/20 from 6-8 pm).
