In a recent interview with Billboard, CyHi The Prynce revealed some details about his upcoming G.O.O.D. Music debut, The Hardway Musical.
In a month, you’ll have been with G.O.O.D Music for two years. What are your thoughts on your own position within the label?
A lot of people don’t know my role. 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.
What do you mean by “creative work”?
It’s like if you’re all in the room and the beat’s playing, you’re gonna bounce ideas. As the wise man, Kanye, always says, “You have an idea and I have an idea, we have two ideas. But if we keep our ideas to ourselves then we only have one. It’s just sharing ideas. [From] fashion, music to relationships, you know what I mean? We indulge in all that, so it’s cool.
So you’re getting work in, in between the mixtapes…
Yeah, absolutely. I’ve been working on the G.O.O.D. Music album. We’re working on ‘Ye’s new album. Working on mine, “The Hardway Musical,” for the first quarter.
How much input would you say Kanye has had on your debut album, “The Hardway Musical”?
Kanye has a very intricate part of it. Yes. To observe him is to learn. 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.
