Artist Of The Week - YC The Cynic

YC The Cynic is an emcee I’ve been aware of for a number of years. I’d not only heard his name from some artists I trust and respect, but I’ve even had a handful of conversations with him. What I hadn’t seen until a few weeks ago, however, was YC The Cynic perform. Thankfully he was able to jump on the mic at the last Bondfire show and it didn’t take long for me to figure out what all the talk was about, YC The Cynic is seriously dope. He’s also young, which makes him part of the next generation of emcees in NYC. This week I caught up with him to find out more about what that next generation has to offer, if he’s really as cynical as his name might suggest, and why there are certain hip-hop shows were you definitely don’t want to just hit on anyone in a dress.

Artist Of The Week – Nyle

Anti-machismo, lonely stoner, and a post-Tribe/Pharcyde type of vibe are just three of the ways Nyle feels his work can be described. Most people who hear him rhyme, however, have found a shorter, one word, description for his style – dope. Nyle’s fan base has been growing steadily since his arrival in NYC from Philly a handful of years ago and he points to his content as one of the reasons for this, saying “the stuff I write about is easy to relate to.” Nyle also has a great range when it comes to his music as he point out his body of work includes everything from “straight rap jawns like ‘Gangrel,’” to “a T-Pain parody song called ‘Fuck A Nice Guy.’” No matter what he may be spittin about, Nyle has developed a reputation for always gettin busy on the mic and this week I caught up with him to ask him about making it in NYC’s crowded hip-hop scene, which kind of naysayers he loves, and why so many people know him by so many different names.

A Conscious Twinterview w/ YC The Cynic

@Conscious How do you approach creating a new rhyme/song/verse....?
@YCtheCynic Me? I don't have a set ritual. Its more so a feeling that I'm in a creative mood. Then I try to figure what flow sounds best.
@Conscious How do you go about choosing tracks to rock over?
@YCtheCynic At this point, I just choose tracks that I like. Beats that I'd listen to, on a regular, w/o words. Plus, if it'd fit my style.
@Conscious What do you consider your style to be?
@YCtheCynic I'd say funk or jazz inspired stuff, that leaves space for the words to be heard/felt/understood. Like a Rebirth of Slick...
@Conscious How long have you been performing? What is your goal with this rap thing?
@YCtheCynic My first performance was about 2 or 3 years ago, but I haven't had many, until recently. I've been rhyming for over 8 years now. My goal is 2 provide good music, an alternative to the detrimental stuff out there. Financially, I'd just like 2 live comfortably. I don't care to be rich/wealthy. I'd just like to, not worry about working...and completely focus on doing what I love.
