Nu Africa: CyHi The Prynce Is Back

G.O.O.D. Music artist CyHi The Prynce is [finally] back on his grizzly with is first new track since 2015 with the release of a brand new single, “Nu Africa.” The single premiered on Pitchfork marks an exciting return for the Grammy-nominated lyricist, showcasing a very different side of his unparalleled musical palate.

Produced by S1 and Epikh Pro and co-produced by Mark Byrd, the track is laced with CyHi’s signature boom bap influences and raw energy. This song is personal; the politically and racially charged lyrics dismantle recent current events in The United States. In the song, CyHi declares, “Tell the Motherland that a ni–a coming back for her.”

Despite being out of the spotlight for nearly all of 2016, Cyhi The Prynce was still associated with some of the year’s biggest hits, co-writing “Ultralight Beam” and “Famous” off of Yeezy’s Life Of Pablo LP, for which he received three nominations for this year’s GRAMMY Awards.

This summer CyHi The Prynce is set to FINALLY release his highly anticipated debut album, No Dope On Sundays, and in April he’ll hit the road with Lil Wayne on a national college tour. See tour dates below.
