A-Trak and CyHi Da Prince Put on Their ‘Ray Ban Vision’
A-Trak is mainly known as a globetrotting DJ, but many in the hip-hop community know him as Kanye West's former DJ. His label with DJ Nick Catchdubs, Fool's Gold, is about to put out a compilation -- 'Fool's Gold Vol.1' -- on October 25 and A-Trak is harkening back to those rap roots for his contribution on the disc -- a new collaboration with West-protégé CyHi Da Prince entitled 'Ray Ban Vision.'
The track should make fans wish that A-Trak dipped back into hip-hop a little more often. With a stomping beat, squelching synthesizers and a bass gallop that would feel at home on the biggest of dance floors, A-Trak provides the perfect bed for CyHi to work through his increasingly hyped brand of smack talk. "I got Ray Ban vision," he raps on the hook. "These aint no prescription/ I see you haters comin/ N----, don't think that I'm slipping/ I got Ray Ban vision/ I wear em when I'm whippin/ I wear em when I'm f---in/ All my women think I'm trippin."
For CyHi Da Price, it's another big look in a month of them. He recently dropped a verse on the star-studded 'So Appalled' with Kanye, Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, RZA and Pusha T, while earlier this week he won a batch of new fans in the G.O.O.D. cypher during the BET Hip-Hop Awards. In addition to a recap mixtape, the new track attempts to capitalize on that hype.
'Fool's Gold Vol. 1' will be sold exclusively at Opening Ceremony stores, and digitally on iTunes beginning on Oct. 25. Check out A-Trak and CyHi Da Prince's collaboration and the rapper's new mixtape here.
