CyHi The Prynce talks about his role on the G.O.O.D. Music label and working with Kanye West on his debut album.
CyHi The Prynce released his new mixtape, Ivy League Club, on July 17th. It's no secret that he's often forgotten on the G.O.O.D. Music roster, so Billboard spoke to the rapper to get his take on criticism and as well to find out what his relationship with the boss, Kanye West, is like.
On his position in the G.O.O.D. Music label, CyHi said, "A lot of people don't know my role. A lot of people don't know that Big Sean was signed five years before he actually broke. But what we do is build on foundation organically because it doesn't matter if [Kanye] is on our song or not, we can still promote our music. I can still put out a mixtape and everybody receives it. That's the foundation I built so... And at the same time I do a lot of creative work that people don't see. I play my position, then when it's time for me to do what I do, then I do."
When asked about how much input 'Ye is putting into CyHi's debut album, The Hardway Musical, Cy says Kanye has an important role. "Kanye has a very intricate part of it. Yes. To observe him is to learn. You can kind of see how he does it and you'd better be taking notes. I gathered a lot of different ideas, different things, and different methods from him to incorporate in my project."
