Review | CyHi The Prynce ‘Ivy League: Kick Back’: The features and production from people like Lex Luger and Beat Billionaire are all icing on the cake, but Cyhi is capable of shining on his own merit. Another jewel on ‘Kick Back’ is the introspective ‘Favorite Things,’ where Cyhi takes listeners on an audio road trip, revisiting his life before that pivotal meeting with Yeezy. Over an ominous beat created by the Audibles, the rapper talks about long nights spent making the wrong decisions for the love of money and all the perks that come along with having a stack of it. The hook is almost eerie in its delivery, borrowing from Julie Andrew’s ‘My Favorite Things.’ Cyhi’s list is infinitely darker, and there’s no mention of warm apple strudels: “Pistols and robberies and strippers from Follies / A few bricks from Papi / Lambos and Rarris / Chevys and Caddys and Cutlass Supremes / These are a few of our favorite things…”

Rockie Fresh, “Something Special”: From the ‘Electric Highway’ project (DL link should be close by on this page). Rockie looks inside himself on this jazzy track, making it an instant favorite for me. Introspective rap. FTW.

Casey Veggies, ‘Life Changes’: Word. So I’m giving this new Veggies a listen this afternoon. Been impressed by the young boy Casey from Cali for a couple years now since his ‘Sleeping in Class’ joint dropped back in 2010. I’m sure he’s gonna continue to gain a whole new legion of fans with every project he drops. This particular one was released on Jan. 22nd and  features appearances from BJ the Chicago Kid, Dom K and Phil Beaurdreau. Casey’s a talented guy.
