CyHi The Prynce is feeling himself right now.
CyHi The Prynce has been making some noise of late. The GOOD Music rapper recently bodied a pair of radio freestyles, dropped two new singles, and revealed the tracklist for his anticipated No Dope On Sundays, which features ScHoolboy Q, Kanye West, Pusha T, Jagged Edge, and more. The project is officially slated to release on November 17th, and clearly, CyHi is feeling the hype. If his magnificent performance on Sway wasn't enough of an indication, CyHi is clearly on another level right now, and he's not afraid to make a few bold claims. In a recent tweet, which he may very well delete at some point, The Prynce boldly declared himself "The Best Rapper Alive" in a move that would make Joffery From Game Of Thrones proud.
It's kinda cool being the best rapper alive!!!— CYHI THE PRYNCE (@CyhiThePrynce) November 10, 2017
He's not the first rapper to refer to himself as the GOAT, with artists like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Nas, Kanye West, Eminem, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Royce Da 5'9", and more coming through to make the claim. As with any such proclamation, there's bound to be a divisive response, especially for those who feel that CyHi is still unproven. After all, he has yet to drop a proper album, and he's already gunning for the throne. While the confidence must certainly be admired, his recent status has caused more than a few raised eyebrows from the internet community.
What do you think about CyHi's claims to be the best rapper alive? Would you say he deserves to be in the conversation? It's certainly an entertaining discourse to have, although it helps to have at least one or two classic albums under your belt. And let's be honest, the competition is pretty damn fierce. Still, CyHi will no doubt stick to his guns, and perhaps November 17th will change some of those skeptical opinions.
