Cyhi the Prynce Album Update & New Track

Cyhi’s long-awaited debut project, No Dope on Sundays, finally has a release date (November 17th).

 

In a recent interview with Sway in the Morning, Cyhi had the following to say about the album, commenting on the idea that he’s just telling the week and life of an average inner city kid.

“My album No Dope On Sundays so there’s only 2-3 songs on my album that’s Sunday. All the rest of them is dope boy shit,” he said. “I want to show them [kids] how to overcome different things. It’s talking about single parent mothers, abortions, cancer, shootouts, fist fights, my partner going to jail, people getting killed. I’m kinda just telling the week of the average inner city kid or young man that’s coming up in America. Showing them I went through the same thing they went through and overcame these things to a higher spiritual being,” he said before referring to himself as the street gospel.

 

In college, I interned for Cyhi the Prynce. I can say from experience, he’s a really nice guy and I hope this album gives him the recognition he deserves.

This Month in Hip-Hop

November is a time to give thanks. This year, we have a lot to be thankful for. This November is especially exciting because of the new music being released.

 

We already know T-Pain’s Oblivion will arrive on the 17th. Additionally, there are rumors circulating that Eminem’s upcoming project is surprising us the same day. My suspicions are that Cyhi’s album, No Dope On Sunday, will also arrive some time this month.

 

If we get at even two of those three, I’ll be ecstatic.

What are you most excited for?

Best of Kendrick Lamar (So Far)

King Kendrick is undoubtedly one of the best rappers in the game right now. I’ve created a playlist with what I believe to be his best works. I will likely be adding to the list when he releases new music.

Let me know in the comments if there’s a particular artist you’d like to see a list for.

B.o.B Doesn’t Believe The Slave Trade Happened…

Ever since B.o.B launched his GoFundMe campaign back in September to prove the earth is flat, I’ve been thinking to myself: What crazy thing will he say next?

 

I no longer have to wonder because now he’s claiming there isn’t enough evidence to prove that the slave trade ever existed in the United States.

 

B.o.B recently shared an old-school conspiracy video on Instagram captioned with the following: “They say slavery lasted 400 yrs… America is only 250 yrs old… You ever seen a slave ship ? They can find a billion year old dinosaur bone but can’t find any slave ships.”

Obviously, this sparked many comments, the best of which said, “”they’re are slaves ships at the Smithsonian African American Museum, National Museum of African American History and Culture. New Orleans just got approved for a project called the Slave Ship Museum and there’s also the International Slave Museum in Liverpool, England […] Google’s your friend brah.”

 

I’m not sure if these are just desperate publicity stunts to get attention or if he is actually losing his mind. Maybe he’s always been this strange and his publicist kept it under wraps.

 

I don’t know but one thing is for sure… The earth IS flat.

(Kidding)

New Single From Cyhi The Prynce & Kanye West

Cyhi teamed up with Mr. West for “Dat Side” which is presumably off of Prynce’s upcoming debut, No Dope On Sunday. The album is expected to come out in November and while this isn’t one of my favorite tracks from either artist, it did do its job of building hype around the release.

 

Check out the new single below and let me know what you think:

“Trial By Fire” Album Review

I wasn’t originally a fan of Yelawolf. However, his 2015 album, Love Story, won me over.

 

I thought the laid-back vocals and country driven sound fit him better and made Yelawolf a more relatable, approachable character. As someone who really enjoyed Love Story, I was ecstatic to hear there was a new project in the works. I hoped the new album would mirror the style of Love Story.

 

Sadly, the recently released Trial By Fire isn’t quite as good as its predecessor. It’s a solid project but it didn’t live up to my expectations.

 

There are some great songs on this album but the records were hit or miss. Out of the 14 tracks, only 9 or 10 of them bear semblance to Love Story (not a bad ratio in my opinion). Love Story didn’t appeal to his entire fan base so he needed to include a few more aggressive songs to appease more people and that’s understandable. I just could’ve done without the in your face, punk rock sound.

 

All in all, Trial By Fire, is a solid project that grows on me a little bit with each listen. I think Love Story is Yelawolf’s best album but Trial By Fire sits comfortably in second place.

 

Ain’t nothing wrong with silver.

Check out both albums below and let me know what you think:
