YC The Cynic

YC the Cynic plays Gramercy with Homeboy Sandman and Tone Tank on 01.18

Bills like this don’t come around too often. Curated by true hip hop heads, featuring some of the baddest talent pulsing through the veins of the underground, this event that could go down in history as the one you were lucky enough to be at - like when the Beasties toured with RUN-DMC or Wu-Tang with Rage Against the Machine. Homeboy Sandman, YC the Cynic (pictured), I Am Many, and Tone Tank round out the New York sets like a style sampler. Also featured is LA via Chicago’s Open Mike Eagle’s smoked-out psychedelia rap. Each performer is a genius in his own right; it would be stupid to miss this show. - BrokeMc

   

NYC Hip Hop we dig: YC The Cynic's new album “GNK”

Young talented rappers are a dime a dozen in NYC. But add in the social awareness of Dead Prez and wordplay that would make MF Doom chuckle and you have new name in the game worth following: YC The Cynic. His latest album “GNK” was released in August, and the album is beyond hot. Fans of Kid Cudi don’t want miss this, which is similar in sound (at times) but miles away in terms of lyrical content. Frank Drake’s production on the album is just as impressive as YC’s emcee-ing, with groovy beats filled with old soul samples. Fuel your body and mind with fresh NYC Hip-hop!
