Atlanta artist Mr. EGOT formally known as CyHi has dropped off the visual for his new song, “Mr. Put That Shit On,” featuring Pusha T, via EMPIRE. “Mr. Put That Shit On” is available on YouTube, watch the video above.
Inspired by ‘The Wiz,’ the CyHi-directed visual sees him namedropping luxury brands like Off-White, Chrome Hearts, Gucci, Balenciaga, and Louis Vuitton—and insisting that he’s one of the best-dressed rappers. “Chrome Hearts, Bottega, I put it on, yeah / Tennis chains, VVS, this neck froze, yeah (Wow) / I be stylin’ on n***as, I put it on, yeah,” Pusha T raps on the chorus.
“Mr. Put That Shit On” marks the return of CyHi, as he gears up for the arrival of his next project ‘The Story of Mr. EGOT.’ The concept album will, as CyHi recently explained on Instagram, follow “the fascinating journey of Philip Michael Thomas, an accomplished American actor and musician who coined the term ‘EGOT.’”
The new song follows CyHi’s last offering, June 2021’s ‘EGOT the EP,’ which featured Jacquees and Big Bank.
And, with his new album on the way, he shows no signs of slowing down. Along the way, he’s collaborated with some of the biggest names in the game, including Lil Wayne and T-Pain, and continues to deliver hit records that resonate with fans around the world.
Regarded as one of the most gifted lyricists in hip-hop, Atlanta musician / artist CyHi has spent more than a decade working behind-the-scenes of some of music’s most prolific albums and tracks. His independently released Royal Flush mixtape in 2010 caught the ear of Kanye, who was so impressed that he invited CyHi to contribute to what would be his platinum-selling album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, appearing on “So Appalled” alongside Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Pusha T and RZA.
After signing with Kanye’s GOOD Music in 2010, CyHi released nine mixtapes, including the critically acclaimed Black Hystori Project and Black Hystori Project 2: NAACP, with collaborations spanning from Childish Gambino, Bobby Valentino, B.o.B., Travis Porter, 2 Chainz and Yelawolf. CyHi also had a substantial part in the creation of Kanye’s Yeezus, with writing credits on all but one of the album’s songs, and appeared on the 2012 GOOD Music compilation album Cruel Summer, featuring on “This Morning” with Raekwon, Common, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi and D’banj, and “Sin City” alongside John Legend, Teyana Taylor, Travis Scott and others.
To date, CyHi has been nominated for a Grammy for five of the past six years, including Kanye West’s “New Slaves” and “Ultralight Beam,” as well as Travis Scott and Drake’s multi-platinum hit, “Sicko Mode.” CyHi has garnered acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Complex and XXL, who featured him on their coveted Freshman cover in 2011. In June of 2021, CyHi released EGOT the EP, yet again met with critical acclaim, and accompanied by a scorching freestyle on Power 106’s LA Leakers show. Now, after taking a short hiatus to craft and create the works of others, CyHi’s returns to begin unveiling his long-awaited and highly-anticipated new project.
