CyHi Da Prynce Says Beyonce Told Kanye West To Sign Him To G.O.O.D. Music

One of 'Ye's latest signees says the deal was done after Bey encouraged him to get him on the label.

CyHi Da Prynce got one of his first big looks by sneaking a guest verse onto Kanye West’s “So Appalled,” an appearance that led ‘Ye to sign him to his G.O.O.D. Music label. But what most listeners don’t know is that after playing the cut for a group of people that included Beyonce, the songstress urged him to ink a deal with CyHi.

“He called me one day like, ‘Yo,’ cause I guess he was playing the music for everybody, like Beyonce or whatever, and I guess he left the song on too long and my verse came on and he was like, ‘Congratulations, you made the album,’” he told PosterchildJ1.com. “I was like, ‘Ya!’ Beyonce told him to sign me. People don’t know that. Beyonce was like, ‘You need to sign him.’”

Watch the rest of the interview below, where he speaks on what inspired the “I’m on One” remix and where he sees himself a year from now.

    If you like Kanye West then you need to read our dissection of his song "Power" IF and ONLY IF YOU ARE A LOVER OF KNOWLEDGE. Here is a taste "The system broken, the schools closed, the prisons open" Kanye West does his research, prison growth is out of control and targeting those with melanin at an alarming rate. We would not make the statement if we could not back it up, here is your Truth: (visit our site)

    Beyonce stale she been getting stale and dry ever since her 3rd album. I hope cyhi succeeds he has alot of talent. I would love to cop his record if he's going to be rapping on there like he raps on his mixtapes.
