For those that don’t know about Cynikal… where have nyou been? I’ve been screaming and shouting about this guy for years!!! lol
I would like to proudly announce the release of his long awaited new mixtape Breakfast.
By design, Breakfast kicks off with ‘Alive’ – a soulful yet head-bopping refix of a Little Brother classic. With a dark and honest lyrical undertone, it sets the mood for the mixtape and invites you to delve further into Breakfast. The record also includes a previously released refix of J.Cole’s ‘Losing My Balance’ which continues to be a favourite amongst many fans and critics, as well as new self-produced songs such as ‘Dreams’ and ‘Won’t Let You Down’ (featuring rising star and lead actress in the Sister Act musical, Cynthia Erivo). The Breakfast culminates in a captivating story teller titled ‘The Struggle’, which features a guest appearance from emerging R&B/Soul singer Seyi and caps off Cynikal’s debut mixtape in superb fashion.
Throughout the 42 minutes of this excellent offering, Cynikal provides a sublime showing of his lyrical dexterities, sharp flow and production qualities that make him one to watch in the UK’s burgeoning urban music scene. What’s more, you can hear the unparalleled volumes of passion resonating out of every beat, every verse and every song on Breakfast – a rarity within the UK Hip-Hop landscape.
In essence, Breakfast translates into an extremely powerful 10-track debut mixtape from the promising rapper/producer from London’s infamous East End.
On the subject of the simple but very poignant mixtape title of Breakfast, Cynikal explains that “it metaphorically reflects exactly where I am in my career – the beginning of a new day”.
