Next Up: CyHi The Prynce

"...The new Commandment: "Thou shalt not hate, kid"/ My movement is like the civil rights, I'm Ralph David/Abernathy, so call my lady Rosa Parks/ I am nothing like them niggas, baby, those are marks// I met this girl on Valentine's Day, fucked her in May/ She found out about April, so she chose to march// Huh, damn another broken heart/ I keep bitches by the twos, nigga, Noah's ark...G-A-T in the Pathfinder/ Cause you haters got PhDs/ Y'all just some major haters and some math minors// Tiger Woods, don't make me grab iron"
(CyHi on Kanye West's "So Appalled")

When I heard this verse, I was pulling up my car at home.  It was so dope, I parked and sat in the car while I played the verse back.  I knew who CyHi The Prynce was from his BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher from last year and was pretty impressed, but I had no idea he would murder a song like that.

From then on, I kept an eye out for him looking for any songs or videos he made.  I spent many tweets trying to let all my followers know how much of a problem he is and will be for the game.  It even sparked a few debates.

Hailing from Stone Mountain, Georgia, CyHi is not your typical A-Town rapper.  It's not just about the beats and the clubs for him--his lyrics transcend regional stereotypes and go beyond the surface so that you can't help but relate.  From what I've seen, he is a freestyle genius that can figure out a way to flow on virtually any beat and think of some of the most clever lines I've ever heard.

Belonging to the empires that are Konvict Music & G.O.O.D. Music, CyHi is going to have to work extremely hard to make sure he gets the proper attention amongst the labels' other stars.  With two hit mixtapes (Royal Flush and Royal Flush 2) and an exponentially growing following, I'd say he's on the perfect path to success.  Check out his recent freestyle with MTV Rap Fix and see why I think he's the next up.
