Almost without a doubt, Cyhi's the most troubling G.O.O.D. Music case. He emerged in 2010 with a show-stopping verse on "So Appalled," and went on to guest on two more G.O.O.D. Fridays cuts, but that would be the last time we'd hear his and Kanye's voices on the same tracks. Since then, he's built up a loyal fanbase with a series of solid mixtapes, but hasn't given so much as a hint at a debut album, or even a single. The most recent of these mixtapes, Hystori: Black History Project, was at least executive produced by West, but that almost felt like consolation for nearly four years of zero involvement in Cyhi's career.
As of right now, Cyhi seems like he's making the right move to set out on his own. He has loyal fans who are riding for him, and probably won't struggle too much finding another label that wants to put out his album.
