Everything We Know About Cyhi’s Album (So Far)

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.

Luke Christopher: Album of the Year

Luke Christopher released his debut album today…

TMRWFRVR might be my favorite project of 2017 so far. Don’t get me wrong, Kendrick is still king but Luke blew me away with this album. When I first heard Section.80, I saw something special. I get the exact same feeling listening to TMRWFRVR.

 

The beats are incredible and Luke’s voice fits perfectly over each, switching between rapping and singing with jaw dropping grace.

 

The awesome thing about this project is that each song feels like a completely unique masterpiece. I can’t even name standout tracks because they are all that good.

Click here to buy the album… You will be so happy you did.

Aloe Blacc – King Is Born

“King Is Born” is the first single off Blacc’s forthcoming album. It surfaced in a recent press conference promoting the upcoming Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fight. The fight is happening on August 26th in Vegas.

 

I think Aloe Blacc is the perfect artist for commercial purposes. Ten thousand dollars says the song appears in Marvel’s Black Panther movie.

 

“Hasta Luego” – J.I.D

Yesterday, J.I.D blessed his fans with a previously unreleased song. According to the Atlanta emcee, the song was very close to being on his album, The Never Story, but didn’t make the final cut.

 

The album is dope and the song is dope. J.I.D is doing his thing and I’m just happy to hear more music from this incredibly talented artist.

 

5 Crazy Collaborations

One of my favorite aspects of hip-hop music is frequent collaboration between artists. It’s a defining characteristic of the genre and often results in some amazing music.

 

Here are five examples of great rap collaborations:

 

“Syllables”

This is possibly one of the best rap songs ever made and surprisingly few people are aware of its existence. Released in 2010, “Syllables” features verses from Eminem, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Stat Quo, and Cashis. Aside from the ridiculously impressive line-up of rappers, the song is actually insightful. The message focuses on the hook-driven, catchy-beat state of modern hip-hop music. This topic’s purposefully juxtaposed with a very generic chorus.

 

“Walk This Way”

Aerosmith’s 1975 song “Walk This Way” was remade in 1986 with the help of Run-D.M.C. This was one of the first major collaborations between the rock and rap genres. It became an international hit and was the first hip-hop song to reach the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

 

“I’m On 2.0”

I love this song… So many incredible artists teamed up to make it. The song is by Trae Tha Truth but features appearances from Big K.R.I.T., Jadakiss, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, B.o.B., Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Bun B, & Mark Morrison. When “I’m On 2.0” was released I thought it was too good to be true… Kendrick and Cole alone is enough to have me in tears. I didn’t think Trae could possibly get all these artists together to make a music video… I’ve never been so happy to be proven wrong.

 

“So Appalled”

From Kanye West’s album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, “So Appalled” includes verses from Kanye West, Jay-Z, Cyhi the Prynce, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, and RZA. In my opinion, Jay-Z and Cyhi the Prynce give the standout performances in the song.

 

“Abstract and the Dragon”

In 2013, rap legends Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes teamed up to create a mixtape called The Abstract & The Dragon. The 28-song mixtape features new collaborations, remixes, and old school hits. The only thing better than a collaborative album is a free collaborative album.
