Cyhi the Prynce was first exposed to a larger audience when he appeared on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in 2010. He’s been signed to G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam for several years, but an album never materialized during that time. According to a press release from his team, Def Jam recently "released" him from the label. Cyhi responded today with a scathing track. He raps on the track, Hey ‘Ye, do you know it feels like? To really be signed to you in real life? Have you ever wrote a song where you know you ‘bout to say something wrong but you’re still right? After that, Cyhi sets his sights on Def Jam, and raps as if he’s a gunman taking the label hostage, before sharing some crass thoughts about Teyana Taylor, and then talks about the hypothetical realities of kidnapping his former boss. Listen below.
