One of the A-Town’s best spitters was recently asked about what Rocky had to say. Cyhi The Prynce took questions at a press conference in Atlanta last week, and the creator of the controversial track “Elephant In The Room” mentioned the Hip Hop industry in his hometown needs to do more to support the city’s rising talent.
“We do have our certain sound. But it’s for the DJs and [radio] program directors take heed to other artists that’s actually bubbling in Atlanta, that don’t do your traditional trap or club music,” said Cyhi. “There’s a lot of different music. We’re like the Mecca of music right now. This is [the home of] LaFace, Dungeon Family, Stankonia. That culture – we just don’t embrace it no more. But that’s why I’m here.”
Cyhi is currently working on his debut studio album. The official follow-up to his critically acclaimed mixtapes Black Hystori Project and BHP 2: N.A.A.C.P. does not have a release date yet, but the Stone Mountain native described what the LP represents in his view.
“One way to sum up my project is the word of God,” stated Cyhi. “I’m just hear to put my story, my message and my ministry at the forefront.”
