Sybyr

AKA: Syringe

About Sybyr

Chase McArthur, known professionally as Sybyr (formerly known as Syringe and MacXVII), is a rapper, singer and producer hailing from Maryland. His music is known for being able to be both aggressive, violent and deafening one moment, and slow, melodic and absolutely heartbreaking the next. He is known for many troll tracks, which aren’t taken serious and being parodies of many clichés in modern rap culture. McArthur was also known for appearing somewhat flamboyant, often wearing high heels, painting his nails, and wearing lipstick, but has recently quit doing this.

Sybyr has been making music since he was 12, when his cousin Kidd Beatz showed him FL studio. Since then, he has ammased a huge catalogue of music, and of multiple genre’s and moods. In 2016, the interest in Sybyr had grown due to the release of 2 albums: ANTI-WORLD and HELLHORSE. Both albums are considered his best work by fans, and both containing his most well known songs, “I Like Being” and “Shoot The Party”. His music during this period also got him noticed by certain media sites, most notably Pidgeons and Planes and the articles they made on him.

In mid-2017, McArthur was reported missing by many of his associates, reportedly last seen in Detroit. About a week later, it was reported that he had been found and contacted, and that he was safe. He stated in an interview with Pigeons and Planes that his reasoning for this was a “mental episode”, but has offered no further information on this.

Up until mid-2017, McArthur was primarily known as Syringe, but changed his name after his disappearance due to run ins with the law during his time in Detroit, and wanting to avoid seeming like a suspicious person with such a harsh nickname.

McArthur also produces beats under the name Landfill, having produced for almost a decade, and is the founder and main member of the Anti-World collective.
