CyHi the Prynce Drops ‘Jack of All Trades’ Mixtape — Listen
With the national unemployment rate still topping nine percent, it's important for jobseekers to demonstrate their versatility. Employers are looking for smart, well-rounded self-starters like CyHi the Prynce, whose new 'Jack of All Trades' mixtape offers some valuable career counseling.
Having signed last year to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music label, CyHi doesn't need a new job, but on this latest collection, he likens himself to a 'Farmer,' 'Robber,' 'Blacksmith' and 'Ambassador,' stuffing these and other tracks with vocational-themed metaphors about his rhyming and lovemaking abilities.
"They say sex is a weapon," the Atlanta MC raps on 'Charmer.' "Baby, how you want it, with the Tech or the Wesson?"
On 'Preacher,' CyHi spreads the gospel of real hip-hop lyricism, dissing those with lesser flows.
"Plus you got no flavor/ All you got is hooks/ Down goes Frazier," he raps, comfortable in his pulpit.
CyHi's sixth mixtape, 'Jack of All Trades' -- download here -- arrives in advance of an official full-length expected later this year. The rapper born Cydel Charles Young didn't title any of his new jams 'Marketer,' but given the hype he's building with these freebie releases, it's clear he's adept in that area, too.
