CyHi is back with a brand new visual today for his track titled, “Napoleon”. Check out the video above and expect some more new music soon.
“I really wanted a scenic, somewhat dark look to tie into the Napoleon Bonaparte concept,” CyHi explains exclusively to HipHopDX of the video’s concept. “Having the black horse was the key. Really it’s a dope visual aesthetic to compliment the lyricism in this song.” The rapper approached the video team with the idea and together they brought it to life. His wardrobe varies from a camouflage ski mask to a karakul hat, which CyHi likens to Eddie Murphy’s princely garb in the classic film Coming To America.
While “Napoleon” is more of an effort to sate fans, there is much more in store for The Fresh Prynce. “I want to release a few mixtapes and then focus on my first album,” he says. As he readies his first full-length project, CyHi names Kanye West as the Executive Producer. “We’re been working on all this new music,” he says, as he’s working very closely with West. “I’ve been writing a lot.”
