Face obscured with a scarf, and only on screen for what seems like a millisecond, CyHi The Prynce’s appearance the video for G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy” is a pretty good visual metaphor for his career so far. Save for a few brief flashes here and there, we haven’t seen much of the East Atlanta emcee these days. Big Sean, Hit Boy, Pusha T and “is he or isn’t he?” member 2Chainz are carrying the team’s flag high, meanwhile, CyHi has been mostly off the national radar since the BET Awards freestyle a couple years back.
Perhaps sensing himself losing prominence in the fickle hip-hop news cycle, the Prynce called in a few favors for his new mixtape entitled Ivy League Club. Featuring big name collaborations with Schoolboy Q, Chris Brown, the aforementioned Big Sean and Hit Boy, Big K.R.I.T. and Yelawolf, CyHi may be banking on the idea that associating with some popular upperclassmen can help him get to the title that every young student of the game wants to hold: The big man on campus.
