CyHi The Prynce is all too familiar with the cost of living the street life. Some aren't fortunate enough to make it out, but the ATL MC hasn't forgotten about the folks who were with him in the trenches. "Round Da Corner" recalls those dark days, where armed robberies and bussing traps were the norm.
While the content is vivid, Cyhi made sure to remind listeners, "I ain't a street n***a. I was just a n***a in the streets."
Well respected Houston rapper and Grand Hustle signee Trae Tha Truth connects with Cyhi on the track, featuring both artists trading verses of in depth stories from their respective hoods. Luckily for them, those days should be over in theory
"Round Da Corner" is the latest leak from CyHi The Prynce's forthcoming Ivy League: Kick Back mixtape, dropping tomorrow. If the project's title leaves you expecting cardigan and khaki rap, that's justified, but you would also be sorely mistaken. So far, tracks like "Far Removed" and "Favorite Things" signal that being signed with Kanye West has taken the street out of CyHi.
Fans will know for sure tomorrow, but in the mean time check out "Round Da Corner" below.
