Fans of Cyhi the Prynce have been long awaiting a debut studio album.
After signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label in 2010, everyone was anticipating Cyhi’s moment to shine. Six years and two album-quality mixtapes later, the debut was still a no-show. In August 2015, he was released from his contract with Def Jam and made his way to Sony.
Cyhi’s indicated that he and Kanye (as well as other G.O.O.D. Music artists) are still on good terms. A few months ago, Prynce announced that his debut album, No Dope On Sundays, was finally finished. He’s assured that the project will arrive “very soon” although the actual release date is still unknown to the public.
Here is what we do know about No Dope On Sundays so far:
Cyhi’s still a part of G.O.O.D. Music
Although Def Jam handles distribution, Kanye originally founded G.O.O.D. Music in conjunction with Sony BMG. It appears that Cyhi’s move from Def Jam to Sony didn’t affect his position with G.O.O.D. Music. The upcoming project will be executive produced by Kanye West and is slated to feature ScHoolboy Q, Travi$ Scott, Pusha T, and more.
2 Chainz will be featured
Prynce posted a video of himself previewing a track including the album name and tagging Chainz in the description. I’d say it’s safe to assume the track is part of the album.
There’s one single already
So far, the only full track to be released is “Movin’ Around” (feat. ScHoolboy Q). Although the use of autotune is out of character for Cyhi the Prynce, I think he uses it decently. Based on the previews we’ve seen, not all of the songs will have autotuned vocals. Personally, I prefer Cyhi’s normal sound. That being said, it’s still a good song.
The album should be sick
This one is just my opinion but check out this video posted of him previewing an unknown track and tell me it doesn’t sound amazing.
Are you excited about the album?
