Cyhi The Prynce, a rapper signed to Kanye West’s label G.O.O.D. Music, releases a dope Afrocentric music video for ‘Nu Africa’, a black-activist tune featuring poet Ernestine Johnson, which mirrors early hip-hop music in its rawest form. With all the materialist symbolism being poured into our membranes, Cyhi saves the day, and delivers a dose of fresh black conscienceness into the hearts of soulish beings—living with the hope of African-Americans living in a “new” and prosperous Africa.
Imagine if all the rappers were / To get with all the athletes or activists and actors for / A conference in Zaire to meet with all the ambassadors / In the motherland, tell ’em we comin’ back for her / America know if we leave, it’d be a massacre / Zimbabwe would be full of drug dealers and traffickers / Smokin’ grass, a cut, pick all the hoes from Magic up / Tell Tabitha, let a nigga Cleopatra her / So, we can build a neighborhood out in Zambia / Tell Khaled to build another one in Tanzania / What if Jay and Bey went and bought some land in Egypt? / And Puffy put a stripper club off the sands of Kenya? / Nu Africa, since America can’t stand to see us / Let’s show ’em why you never bite the hand that feeds you / Nu Africa, call Akon to light the city up / Palace, bought the compound in Libya / Nu Africa, what if they had a Follie’s in Nigeria? / A King of Diamonds in Liberia / Ballin’ in Algeria, ain’t gotta put my jewelry up / And if you Black, you fit the criteria
