CyHi The Prynce Puts Kanye West on Blast…But It’s All in the Family (Audio)
Over the years, Kanye West has gone on some memorable rants. Now, it appears the quality has rubbed off on his G.O.O.D. Music signee, CyHi The Prynce. Much like Kanye did with Jay Z on “Big Brother,” CyHi takes Kanye to task for several transgressions he believes he’s suffered over the years. CyHi’s new song “Elephant in the Room,” blasts Ye for not yet releasing CyHi’s album, despite his being affiliated with Ye’s G.O.O.D. Music for 5 years, not being included on magazine cover shoots with other Kanye affiliates and more. He even simulates a breaking and entering into West’s home where he holds wife Kim Kardashian captive, along with demanding a new record deal.
The beginning of the song, where someone needles CyHi about his current back-burner status, makes it quite clear that the song is made in jest. Lines like “I hope when I’m done that we still tight,” reinforce that the song is more akin to Eminem jokingly taking shots at manager Paul Rosenberg than Meek Mill going at Drake. Still, as with some of Kanye’s commentary in “Big Brother,” much of what CyHi says on the record rings true. He’s been patiently waiting. It’s time for his day in the sun.
