Cy's talent as both a quick-witted wordsmith and a sharp writer is unmistakable.
GOOD Music's writing secret weapon has finally unleashed Cyhi the Prynce's long awaited debut album, No Dope on Sundays, an hour and thirteen minute ballad that is both gospel and gritty. The project is full of rhyme scheme intricacies as Cyhi relives his past of despair, and drug dealing in Atlanta.
The grind in Atlanta never stopped but there was always "No Dope On Sundays." Not only is the album a bible of stories and do's and don't in gang activity, but Cy's talent as both a quick-witted wordsmith and a sharp writer is unmistakable.
At times Cydell sounds like the MC's MC that vintage Hip-Hop fans will love, but throughout the album he develops certain frequencies on hooks with the help of vocal effects that assist in avoiding an outdated atmosphere.
As No Dope on Sundays is a very enjoyable, intellectual project, it's unlikely that it will receive the consideration it deserves because of both the environment Hip-Hop is currently at, and how long the album took to produce.
With this new work, Cyhi the Prynce has most definitely solidified his spot as one of the greatest active lyricists today, and of the few that are also talented song makers. Not only that, but he managed to emerge from the "Kanye's side-kick box" that he had been discarded in during his time in the background at GOOD Music.
