“Friend of Sway in the Morning, CyHi The Prynce swings by our Sirius XM studio today and casually hops on the mic to destroy an early morning freestyle. Never afraid of spittin’ bars, DJ Wonder threw on some fire hip-hop beats, and CyHi didn’t hesitate to go off for an unexpected 5 Fingers of Death. Watch this Good Music artist spazz below and keep your eye out for his No Dope on Sundays album.” – SwaysUniverse
“Cyhi is the quintessential artist of our times. He’s the DNA behind this generation most important artist including Kanye. His musical legacy creates the feeling you get when you think of legends in the game. The song ‘Legend’ is premonition of his truth. When he drops people will be forced to step up their game.” – Sway Calloway, Sirius XM
