We have mentioned the resurgence of CyHi The Prynce a lot lately and it seems those who predicted that CyHi was well-positioned to have a standout year were correct. After releasing a couple of mixtapes and being a heavy contributor to Kanye West’s album Yeezus, the G.O.O.D. Music lyricist is primed to start gaining more national exposure in 2014 after the release of his Black Hystori project. CyHi paid a visit to the Sway In The Morning show recently to discuss his album as well as details regarding his work/relationships with Kanye and Jay Z. While the interview was an insightful one, it was the in-studio performances of some of CyHi’s new tracks that caught our attention as well as Sway’s. It may have been easy to label CyHi as undervalued, under-utilized, or undervalued in the past few years since he initially burst onto the scene with G.O.O.D. Music, but it seems like now is the time for CyHi to shine. 

In the interview portion of the segment, CyHi discussed what it was like to work so extensively with Kanye West on his Yeezus project. It is well-known that Kanye’s creative working process is a unique one, but overall CyHi viewed his contributions to the album as an educational experience. Being in such an advantageous position has only aided CyHi’s artistic development, and when Jay Z is the person who originally co-signed your talent to Ye, it is a hell of a way to start a career. Sway and CyHi then delved into the Black Hystori project and how CyHi was influenced to make the record when he heard that, according to his nephew’s teacher, he was not important enough to be the subject of a school Black History project. Clearly taking that to heart, CyHi recently put out the mixtape and it has been very well-received. However, the definitive highlight of this clip would be the passionate in-studio performances that left Sway and company in awe. Everything from CyHi’s mind-bending wordplay to passionate delivery was top-notch, enough so for Sway to label him as the hottest rapper in the game. While that may be a bit of a stretch, you cannot deny CyHi’s talent as an emcee and we think he has a bright future ahead of him. When Rev Run says he enjoyed listening to one of your verses as a movie…that’s how you know you are doing something right.
