Cyrus is a busboy at the club, Off the Street. He's such a loyal friend that he sits back and allows best friend Kris to use his rhymes to win over the girl of his dreams, but finally came up clean and told Roxanne the truth as Roxanne forgave Cyrus and starts being his girlfriend. Cyrus is such a good rapper, he can find ten ways to diss himself and always uses the truth, he finds in his music. Cyrus is head of the chruch choir, but thinks it they're should be some hip-hop added to it. Cyrus also won the Rap Grand Slam and became the new champion after beating his nemesis, Lord of Da Bling in a rap battle.

But when Roxanne starts falling in love with Kris because of the song that Cyrus wrote, it may jeoprodize their friendship. The two were about to fight in the club. But then became friends again when Kris needs to sing live. Kris claims Cyrus is one of the best rappers, he've seen in his life.
