CyHi Da Prynce is one of the newest members of the G.O.O.D Music family that already includes Kanye West, Common, Pusha T, John Legend, Consequence, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, and more. The addition of CyHi Da Prynce brings another proficient artist with witty wordplay and a veteran sound. His latest mixtape Royal Flush is beginning to sound like the best mixtape of 2010.

CyHi Da Prynce hails from Atlanta and was already signed with Def Jam/Konvict Records, where fellow recording artist Akon resides, before being signed again with Kanye West. He mentions how he’s so nice Def Jam signed him twice. With a mixtape already on the way, flying out to Hawaii to work on tracks with Kanye, and appearing on a track with heavy hitters Jay-Z and Pusha T, CyHi Da Prynce is making a name for himself. Check out his verse on “So Appalled” (a track that’s part of the G.O.O.D Music Friday initiative) or his appearance on the BET Hip Hop Awards rapping on the famous G.O.O.D Music Cypher alongside Common, Big Sean, Pusha T, and Kanye West. Find footage of the cypher as well as the track “So Appalled” below.

“So Appalled”

In a recent interview with Hip Hop DX here’s what CyHi Da Prince had to say about working on “So Appalled”:

“I got to Hawaii and we was just vibin’ and [Kanye’s] like, I got this record man. Think of something for the hook. I’m like, think of something for the hook? And when I heard it I was like this beat is hard! My thing was, okay, I ain’t just gonna write a hook, I’m gonna write a verse too. So he gets up at like four or five in the morning. I had snuck my verse on there, and I guess once he was playing it he didn’t even know my verse was on there. And it just came on and was playing, and everybody in the studio was like, ‘Ooh, who’s this?!’ That was my way of keeping [my verse] on the song.”

“So me and Pusha T did our verses, then Jay-Z heard it. Jay was like yo this is crazy right here. We was all like, ‘Jay, you gotta be a part of this, this is Roc Nation right here!’ [Laughs] At the end of the day it was just something that came out together just from us being around each other.”

On Royal Flush:

“You can expect a lot of storytelling, a lot of great music. It’s very musical, ‘cause I always say my music is a play. It’s an audio play, or audio movie that you’ll be listening to. I highlight different life experiences, where I was, where I am now and where I look to be. Not too much fabrication, if any at all. It’s very honest. And you’ll be hearing raw Rap. You’re gonna hear a lot of trickery, a lot of witty wordplay, a lot of punch lines, a lot of different things that’s gonna intrigue the listener.”
