After watching CyHi Da Prynce deliver an impressive “freestyle” for the cipher sessions on the BET Awards, I decided it was time to stop ignoring the G.O.O.D. music artist as a prospect doomed to never drop on a label that's top heavy with top shelf talent.
A-Trak is dropping his Fool's Gold Vol.1 compilation the last week of October. CyHi is featured on the compilation's first leak “Ray Ban Vision,” which seems like product placement overkill after watching CyHi freestyle behind the heavy tint of his wayfarers on BET (view below). Seriously though, if I had cable I'd wager that it's only a matter of weeks before the “Ray Ban Vision” commercial is littered across the “music” channels with debonair models dressed to the nines in raven black skinny suits dangerously crossing the streets of Manhattan in their wayfarers. If this was real life, they'd be flirting with permanent ray-ban placement to cover their blind eyes after taking a taxi cab head on.
Earlier this week CyHi dropped his Royal Flush mixtape. Heavy on synth-driven production and auto-tuned R&B hooks, CyHi strays from the subversive consciousness and compulsive lavish obsessions from his label mates. He raps with Atlanta's taste in mind. The tape closes G.O.O.D. Friday track “So Appalled,” in which CyHi reminds us that he's capable of matching bars with the likes of Jay-Z, Pusha-T and Kanye West.
