SYNCZ Crew is a hip hop/cypher group made of Wayne State University students. The brainchild of Kevin Bausley II, SYNCZ has been in the game since 2008, when they started as an acapella group called SYNCS, or Singing Young New Age College Students. Eventually they moved away completely from singing to form the dance crew, which can now be seen today performing and competing at Wayne State and around the Metro Detroit area.
