The long awaited CyHi The Prynce debut, No Dope on Sundays, has finally arrived and he did not disappoint. CyHi takes us to church on how to being in the streets has made him the man he is today. Just like K.R.I.T., his days at Def Jam are behind him so we can finally get some music. During the rollout CyHi bodied every freestyle he did especially when he visited Funk Flex. As a member of the G.O.O.D. Music team, he was more of a role player barring us up on feature verses. Now he is ready to solidify his spot in the starting rotation.
This CyHi project delivers what we have been waiting for, a bar heavy project. On the intro he's dropping knowledge, "Turbulance is the price you pay for flying high." and he reminds us where he' s from "the gangstas die young and the rats die faster." Not only was he barring us up left and right, but the actual songs were amazing. It's one thing to hit us with punchlines left and right, if that was the case a lot more battle rappers would have crossed over to this side of the game. Nevertheless, each song told a story that a look into the trials that make CyHi who he is.My favorite track on the project is is Movin' Around ft Schoolboy Q. the two were a dope tch for each other and my favortie bar came on this song with "back to moving around the a like an at sign.". I could sit here all day and recite the bars CyHi gave us, but lets talk about something I didn't know CyHi had in his arsenal. That being his ability to harmonize on the track. Several times throughout the album he sung the hook and to my surprise it was not bad at all. Not only was his harmonizing on tracks wasn't bad but the features were solid as well. In the first feature we have a conversation with Pusha T as he looks back over his time in the game. Next is the previously mentioned Schoolboy feature. After that we hear from 2 chainz who also bodied his verse just like anything he has touched in the past year or so. We then get soulful features from Estelle and BJ the Chicago Kid respectfully. His tehn calls on Kanye to give what would say is on of his better verses in a while. Lastly we get a fire verse from La Flame.
CyHi The Prynce delivers a debut project that exceeded my expectations. From the bars to concept and features it was definitely the long awaited project we have been waiting for. G\I'm glad to see him finally come off the bench and get in the game. I pray we continue to see more from him and just remember never come through the trap on sundays. As always...
