CyHi the Prynce is an oft-overlooked and forgotten member of G.O.O.D Music. From the outside looking in, it might seem as if G.O.O.D is moving on to a new generation, snapping up the likes of Futu…I mean Desiigner and thrusting them right into the spotlight; centre stage on Kanye West‘s latest project The Life of Pablo.
In reality however, it would seem that CyHi has just been biding his time, and he has now been given the green light by none other than Mr. West himself to piece his album together, with Yeezy to take the reins of production.

This is of course an interesting turn of events, after the rapper was dissing Kanye late last year and announcing his own debut release. How times change.
This is not the first time that the two rappers have worked together of course, with CyHi delivering one of the standout verses on what is arguably Kanye’s musical triumph, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and leaving rap fans with one awesome story as to how the verse for So Appalled came about.
A known stickler for quality, Kanye’s production process for MBDTF is legendary. His self-imposed exile in Hawaii crafted one of the greatest albums in recent memory. CyHi, well aware of his mentor’s borderline psychotic quality control, snuck a verse onto a demo recording of So Appalled. Kanye heard the altered version, and the rest they say, is history.
Let’s hope that the two have put their differences aside and can craft another classic.
