While in her studio, she explored audio engineering and music production. Nowadays, she sings, writes, produces, DJs, and mixes audio. Originally, she performed under the name “Syd Tha Kyd,” which was made up by her brother, but as she grew older she dropped “Tha Kyd” and begin performing under the name “Syd.”

In the late 2000s, Syd along with her brother Travis “Taco” joined the group Odd Future, whose most notable member is Tyler the Creator, and the group’s early songs were recorded in Syd’s home. She remained an active member of the group until early 2016.
