After releasing his latest mixtape, Ivy League Club, CyHi the Prynce is readying his G.O.O.D. Music debut. In a recent interview with Billboard, CyHi explained his role with the G.O.O.D. Music family, saying that many are unaware of the work he’s been putting in. He also discussed how he’s learned from Kanye West.
“A lot of people don’t know my role,” he acknowledged. “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.”
CyHi also shared that his album will feature creative input from Kanye West, someone that he’s learned a lot from.
“To observe [West] is to learn,” he said when speaking about Kanye. “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.”
CyHi will be dropping his album, The Hardway Musical, early next year.
