is Cy’s version of Nas’s “If I Ruled The World,” elongated into an album. Backed by JSLIKK & Cynergy’s “soul & synths”, Cyrano (aka Cy Yung) waxes poetic about politickin’, tragedy, nostalgia & hope giving u a glimpse into what Freedom under the BPA Administration CAN be if we all take the time to just remember. He’s got crooner J-Soul on the intro, and he teams up with vocalist Maria Don to remind us who is the most important woman in all our lives. This EP speaks to the revolutionary, the robber, and the reformed all at the same time. Cyrano’s Republic
dares you to answer the question “Can there be freedom without sacrifice?”
