The track sees CyHi digging deep into loss, whether in his career or personal life. “I feel like Atlanta needs some healing right now,” he said of the song in a statement.
“Tears” is the first single from the rapper’s forthcoming project The Story of E.G.O.T., slated for release this summer. In advance, he will offer up a new four-pack, E.G.O.T.: The EP on May 20. The projects follow the announcement of his E.G.O.T. Records label in partnership with Empire.
“I’m way more diverse than just a writer and rapper. I wanted to be able to fully spread my wings and showcase all my talents in one project. I believe this project is E.G.O.T worthy,” Cyhi explained of his new album, referring to the coveted status of artists who earn an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony across a career. “Its creativity, emotion, and star-studded lineup is unmatched.”
