Coming off the heels of his "Black Hystori Project's" successful launch, CyHi discusses the mix and looks toward future projects.
If CyHi The Prince's conscious efforts weren't a bright spot on the G.O.O.D. Music roster before, they are now, in the wake of his mixtape's release, Black Hystori Project which opened to positive word of mouth. So, CyHi can count it as a victory but he now has to worry about mounting expectations for his future releases.
"Yeah we got a lot of things in the works, I got a couple projects before the winter.

He goes on, saying, "Really the Black Hystori project is just not about the people, it’s about the idea of black the stereotype of it.. how if everything is dark it’s evil or dark you know that type of thing. So I just wanted to show something that was aggressive but still clever still artistic and still beautiful at the same time..."
