Not long after G.O.O.D. Music’s CyHi The Prynce spilled the beans on an upcoming movie he’s working on, the ATL spitta opened up to the VIBE staff on the extra push he recieved to grab’s Kanye’s attention.
You see, CyHi recently released Royal Flush 2, the second installment of what fans hope to be a running series, but outside of that, VIBE really ony knew that The Prynce was quietly watching the throne (pun intended). But somehow, we just knew that he’d have a lot to say.
The outrageous rapper dropped some interesting bombs on us about how he made it to Ye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, crediting Beyoncé as a reason he was able to sign with G.O.O.D. Music and what he feels Watch The Throne will mean for hip-hop .
VIBE: Wow. Beyoncé was the bug in Ye’s ear telling him to put you on?
CyHi: Beyoncé is one of the reasons I got signed to G.OO.D. A lot of people don’t know that. I guess [it was] when he was playing her the music, when I had snuck my verse on Kanye’s song. The story is: One night I was at the studio, and he was doing his record, and he was like,’Yo, I’m finna go. Think of this hook for me.’ I was like, ‘Okay, cool,’ so when he told me which song it was, it was one of my favorite songs that he was working on. I thought of the hook, so I put it on the song. And it was crazy because… Well, let me tell you this story first:
When I first got to Kanye, when we was at the studio, it was in Hawaii right [in front of] the ocean. When you go in, you go through, like, 20 doors, you know what I’m saying? You gotta go through so many rooms just to get to where he is. So once you get in there, he had rules and regulations like “No internet,” “No electric guitars,” “No autotune,” “No cameras,” no nothing. He had the rules on the wall, but once you seen what he was in there doing, it was all work, it was all business. There was never no playtime. But when he asked me to do the song, it was a strict environment, so I didn’t have nothing else to do. I was like, I’ll write a verse. So I wrote a verse, and I didn’t want him to hear my verse so I put my verse at the end of the song. [Laughs] So I guess when he was playing the song for Beyoncé, and whoever else, I guess he left the song playing while he was talking, and my verse just came in out of nowhere. And that was it.
