CyHi The Prynce Attacks a Thunderous Beat Like a L.I.O.N. (Video)
Over the years, CyHi The Prynce has shown a penchant for concept projects. Since 2010, he’s released several thematic mixtapes, from his Royal Flush series to the Ivy League collection to his Black Hystori Projects. Now, the G.O.O.D. Music MC has announced a new project, L.I.O.N. (Like It Or Not), is in the works. He kicked off the promo campaign earlier in the week with, “Elephant in the Room,” a clever send up of boss and friend, Kanye West. The song, which was clearly in jest, started a social media frenzy, as he took Kanye to task for not releasing his album.
CyHi follows that track up with the video for the title track for L.I.O.N. The video finds CyHi lyrically dissecting a thunderous beat, while wearing an Asian rice hat. The closing shot shows him in a pair of Yeezy Boosts and sporting a hat with the word “good,” making it clear that when it comes to CyHi and Ye, it’s still all G.O.O.D.
