AUDIO: CYJ – “Loved & Lost”
Hip hop artist CYJ has a new EP out this week. Over four songs, the rapper reflects on his past relationships and the dichotomy between his wants and needs. Working with producers Trip and Wabibeats, a lo-fi production style anchors CYJ’s vulnerability with conviction here. Relationships begin with blissful uncertainty and simple commonalities, but ultimately we are faced with big questions of compatibility and trust as time passes. CYJ touches on the start and finish of these personal evolutions in a way that is easy to digest but while retaining his integrity. Hopefully he’s got some visuals in the works.
