Giriboy or also known as Siyoung, the popular Korean rapper, started her musical journey several years ago back in 2011.
In that year, he initially released his debut single, You Look So Good To Me, a song that was released under Just Music.
After releasing that debut single, this Aquarius rapper then tried another shot by releasing his first EP, Fatal Album (2012).
That EP was a compilation of songs that he had written for years during his high school period.
Siyoung later made another EP, her second extended play with the title of Fatal Album II at the end of 2012.
Two years later, in 2014, he became a contestant of Show Me the Money Season 3.
After signing himself up for that show, Siyoung gained a lot of popularity because of his unique style in musicals.
That year, he also successfully entered the Top 100 Gaon Digital Chart for his single, Fluttering Feelings, a collaboration single with NS Yoon-G.
Later, he then released his album, Sexual Perceptions, in 2015 which got into the 10th position for the Gaon Album Chart.
That career then was followed by his next album release, Mechanical Album (2016), and his next EP, 5 Songs For Initiation (2017).
