CyHi Da Prynce is an emcee from Stone Mountain, Atlanta. He is signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music Label and Def Jam Recordings. Cyhi has made appearances on Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and has released four mixtapes, with the latest being Royal Flush.
Growing up, Prynce was a vibrant youth as he played several sports including football, basketball, and track and field in addition to singing in school choirs, and participating in school plays and dances. His parents, who raised Prynce in a Baptist church, were very strict in nature, as Prynce was not even allowed to listen to rap music until he was 12 years of age. Despite their ‘tough-love’, Prynce learned many lifelong lessons. Most importantly, he learned to appreciate the foundation his parents gave him realizing that his parents laid the foundation that enabled Cydel Young to remain true to who he found himself to be, Cyhi da Prynce. Cyhi first gained major buzz in 2010 when he received a cosign from Kanye West himself. With the power of a Kanye West cosign, Cyhi continued to build more buzz until he finalized his deal with Kanye’s GOOD Music in September of 2010.
