Originally from Leominster, Massachusetts, Syke Pachino moved down south, where he spent most of his life and would go on to begin his career in music.
In 2001 Syke signed his first recording contract with Flipn Flava Records, where he released his debut album titled "Georgiarican" under the name "Syko-Rah" and was supported by the single "Darkmoom Setting" which featured a guest appearance from former American Idol semi-finalist, Christopher Aaron. Shortly after the release, Syke went on an eight-year hiatus due to complications with the label and his personal life.
In 2008, he decided to leave Flipn Flava and re-invent himself, recording under the name "Syke Pachino". A year after his departure, a second project "Political Prisoner" was released as a means to fulfill his contract.
Also during this time, he linked up with Brett Life, another producer from Columbus, Ga and released the Def For Life Records' debut "The Rebirth" and the unreleased album, "Life Muzik" .
During the later part of 2009, Syke linked up with Seagram Records (named after the slain Oakland rapper Seagram) to begin working on his next project. As a result, he released his third album "Live By The Code" in 2011.
Syke went on to be nominated for "Hip Hop Male Artist of the Year" at the 2012 GA Music Awards, held in Atlanta, Georgia.
Over the years Syke has worked with many notable artist such as Scarface, Bun B, Spice 1 and Bohagon just to name a few.
Syke has also been featured on tour alongside Young Bleed, Mr. Envi', Chucky Workclothes and others consecutively for the past two years, prepping for the upcoming "Hard Work Pays Off Tour", scheduled to start on April 28th. His next release titled "Only Time Will Tell" is scheduled to be released early fall 2017, under his own label, Ear Hustlin' Entertainment.
