G.O.O.D. Music rapper Cyhi the Prynce has contributed greatly to Kanye West's recent music catalog, including the deeply complex "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and the Jay-Z collaborative "Watch the Throne," but has yet to release his debut. Cyhi is ready to drop his fifth mixtape on January 29th, and explained to Hip Hop Wired that he's just excited to be part of the mix.
"Even with the president [Obama]. Y'all see him come out and give the speech but a lot of people had something to do with it. Like, 'Say it this way,' or 'Give it this feeling,' so yeah, that's just with every artist. Not just with [Kanye]. There are a lot of people in the room that give off energy- smoke some weed, drink some liquor and vibe out, you know?"
Cyhi also spoke about a defining moment in his career, which involved Jay-Z and Kanye.
"Me getting ordained by Jay-Z and Kanye. When I got my first Jesus piece, they were both in the room and they both presented it to me. To be a part of the family is just like a dream come true. A lot of people don't know that I was there [at The Mercer] for the recording of the whole Throne [LP]."
That's definitely a story for the ages.
