It’s been a long time in the making, since February to be exact when he first announced the album No Dope On Sundays, but after of months of being left in the dark, Cyhi’s highly anticipated debut album is finally right around the corner. Over the past couple weeks, CyHu has been rolling out new singles in its support, including “Dat Side” with Kanye West and most recently “Im Fine” with Travis Scott, but thankfully he's still not done sharing new music with us.
At midnight, Cyhi made the album available for pre-order on iTunes, ultimately revealing its release date & tracklisting the process. From the looks of it, the album will contain 15 tracks in total & feature guest appearances from Kanye West, Pusha T Schoolboy Q, Travis Scott, 2 Chainz, Jagged Edge, and more. Luckily we don’t have to wait long to hear it either as it’s set to arrive next Friday, November 17th.
Those of you who take advantage of the early purchase will receive this new song for free as an instant download called “God Bless Your Heart,” along with the previously heard “Movin Around,” “Dat Side,” “Nu Africa,” & “Im Fine.” Speaking on the record in his interview with Sway, Cyhi had the following to say about the song and the album, referring to how he’s overcome so much in his life to now being a better, spiritual being.
“I want to show them [kids] how to overcome different things. It’s talking about single parent mothers, abortions, cancer, shootouts fist fights, jail, people getting killed. Im kinda just telling the week of a the average inner city kid or young man coming up in America. Showing them I went through these same things and overcame to a higher spiritual being,” he said before referring to himself as the street gospel.
