ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
www.ComplexMelodies.com

His current project is Circus World Event…The Ringleader. The concept album employs carnival-type sounds and metaphors that envision our world as a circus with one true ringleader (God) and an imposter (Satan) who plots and schemes for the same position. With the project, CY has developed an eye-popping stage show that adds creative visual illustrations to the story subjects described in Circus World Event's song list.

Circuses can be inspiring. Introduce children to one and then
carefully observe their next month on the playground as they re-
create the roles of the clown, the lion tamer, and the trapeze artist.

For Christian rapper CY, it launched a fresh phase of his music career
– one marked by a new found creative freedom for his sound, lyrics,
and stage show.

After launching the Circus World Event…The Ringleader album at the
2007 Texas Holy Hip Hop Achievement Awards (where MTV
personality Sway was a presenter) to critical acclaim, CY began to
pray about the direction of its much anticipated follow-up.

Whereas The Ringleader’s concept envisioned our world as a circus
with one true ringleader (God) and an imposter (Satan) who plots
and schemes for the same position, Circus World Event…High Wire
Act plays off a tight rope metaphor that represents the narrow road
believers in Christ must walk in order to receive eternal life. The
project also carries other messages about the humility that must be
maintained by those placed in lofty positions.

CY’s High Wire Act employs a gloomier carnival sound, picture-
painting lyrics, and explosive energy. It’s versatile and accessible to
all listeners with tracks produced by himself, Phillip Moore, Tony
Stone, Vohn Beats/Symbolyc One, Jimmy Natural and others. Guest
artists include Young Joshua, Tony Stone, One Dose, Von Won,
FireJaws, Gina V, Tannie, Gifted, Kent & Shellee Coley, MiKalibur,
Titus, D.Steele, and more.

High Wire Act marks CY’s third solo album
(fourth overall.) Previous records have spawned an award winning
video for his “Confession Invasion” single, recognition for the best
New Album and New Artist of the Year (2003 Texas Holy Hip Hop
Awards), and several other nominations and industry honors.

In addition, CY has performed at major events such as SXSW, Rap
Fest, the En Sound Music Awards, the All Eyes On Me Awards, and
Atlanta’s Holy Hip Hop Awards (where he was also honored.)

Through those events and others, he has been honored to share the
stage with music ministers such as Da’ T.R.U.T.H., Deitrick Haddon,
Knowdaverbs, 4th Avenue Jones, Corey Red & Precise, Mark J, Lil
Raskull, Pettidee, Todd Bangz, Everyday Process, and Lecrae.

The album includes guest appearances by R-Swift (Cross Movement Records), J-Silas (RockSoul Entertainment), Pettidee (Soldier Sound Productions), Sean Slaughter, Mark J, Enock, and the Much Luvv Family. Circus World Event features production by Tony Stone, CY, 4 Sight Sounds, Big Toe, English, Phillip Moore and mixing, mastering, and engineering by Phillip Moore - displaying some of the highest quality audio Holy Hip Hop has ever heard!
First impressions of Timothy Gross may lead one to believe he's a quiet soul. But give him time and the multi-talented CY will emerge, impress, and encourage.

Tight!
Quite an original concept for an album. To me, it brings back the originality that was the hallmark of earlier hip-hop. No matter Faheem Najm's album and irrespective of the comparison to Busta, this album has its own flavor. The flow is official. The Christ is well represented. Many insightful and accurate commentaries on how holy hip-hop is the true underground. SPOILER ALERT: The Flip Side Trapeze (Last First Event) track is STRAIGHT BANGIN, the last verse especially!
