Rappers’ struggles with acclimating to fame and severing their street ties have been well documented in Hip-Hop history. That looks to be CyHi The Prynce‘s plight in the visuals for “Favorite Things,” during which the MC’s A-town comrades convince him to assist in a robbery. The G.O.O.D. Music artists has a clear internal conflict, but that doesn’t stop him from living that life.

The track flips the concept of the classic song “My Favorite Things,” but CyHi isn’t talking about cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels here. It’s real in Atlanta, so it’s only natural that strippers from Follies and a few bricks from Papi appear on the MC’s list of favorite things. It takes a certain level of monetary success to attain these highly coveted items, though. That’s where the masks and gloves come in.

“Favorite Things” is the first track of more to come in the form of a mixtape, titled Ivy League: Kick Back. There’s no word on who will produce or appear on the project, but with its release date scheduled for January 29 that shouldn’t remain a secret much longer.

See the gritty visuals for “Favorite Things” below.
