For the latest episode of "Rate the Bars," CyHi was given excerpts from different artists' lyrics. He was then asked to read the lyrics aloud before ranking them on a five-point scale without being told the name of the artist. CyHi had mostly good things to say about lines from Kodie Shane, K Camp, Chief Keef, and Childish Gambino. "I mean, I can't compare none of these guys to me because I'm just god level, so I'm trying to think on more of a civilian level," he explained.
The highest of his praise was reserved for Vic Mensa, Black Thought, West, and himself. "That's somebody on my level," he said of Black Thought's Hot 97 freestyle. "I don't know who it is, but I know it's somebody barred up to say some dope stuff like that." CyHi rated West's lyricism a 10 out of five, leaving himself as the only artist to have scored a whopping 20 on a scale of five. Catch the full bar-rating discussion via the video up top.
Next month, CyHi joins Big K.R.I.T. for the Heavy Is the Crown Tour in support of his debut studio album No Dope on Sundays, executive-produced by West. Working with the G.O.O.D. Music founder, CyHi told VladTV, gives you the chance to see genius in action. "When I went into the situation, I knew I was dealing with a genius," he said. "I didn't look at him nothing else but a genius. So anything that comes with being around a genius, I'm with it. A lot of people just ain't with it."
