Young Cypher first came on our radars with his 2013 mixtape The Unexpected, which featured production from Ricky Racks. After a hiatus in 2014, he's back this year in a big way. He just dropped his latest EP, Shades of Black, and to celebrate the release, he's given us a free download of a freestyle recorded over Jay Electronica's recent single "Road to Perdition.."
Young Cypher continues with the same uplifting material we got on Shades of Black. Cypher (in a freestyle no less) encourages his people to get behind him and get off this "Road to Perdition." It's a nice change of pace to hear a Southern artist rapping over this NYC instrumental.
Cop Shades of Black on iTunes, and let us know what you think of Young Cypher.
Tellin' all black men we gotta stand up
Feelin' like the system we in is kinda set up
Fuckin' fed up
