There has been a bit of dissention in [artist id="1230523"]Kanye West[/artist]‘s G.O.O.D. Music camp, but [artist id="3218838"]CyHi The Prynce[/artist] won’t involve himself in any of it. Instead, the self-proclaimed self-reliant Atlanta MC chooses to work on building his career up as much as he can, himself.
In May, former G.O.O.D. rapper Consequence sat on the “RapFix Live” couch to air some grievances with his onetime friend Kanye West. At the root of Cons’ issue seemed to be his omissions from an XXL magazine photo shoot and BET taping, as well as the delay in the release of his sophomore album, Cons TV. When Sway asked Cons if his angst spread to any of the other artists on G.O.O.D.. he coyly said, “Wait till M.O.D. 3,” plugging his still-unreleased mixtape Movies on Demand 3.
“I can’t really speak on Consequence, ’cause I don’t know the agreements they had,” CyHi said on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live.” “They had their relationship before I came along, so I don’t have no problem with him. That’s my guy.”
While Cy distanced himself from the rift between ‘Ye and Cons, he did speak on his own situation, letting it be known that he does not feel as if Kanye owes him anything beyond what he has already given.
“I say ‘Ye don’t have to do nothing else for me. He didn’t even have to put me on the album; he could’ve just said, ‘Yo he’s dope,’ like he did on his blog, and I was gonna run with that,” CyHi said before revealing the surprising circumstances in which he got signed at a 2010 magazine cover shoot. “I didn’t know he was gonna sign me. I got surprised with the signing at the XXL shoot. I was just rappin’.”
Every relationship has the potential to sour, and the Prynce, who is just beginning work on his debut album, The Hard Way Musical, is grateful for Kanye’s assist but says he isn’t reliant on it. “God forbid anything happen to [Kanye] and he’s not going to be able to do that no more, then where are we gonna go after that?” he questioned. “So I try to build my own foundation and let him know I’m not just an artist of his; I’m an ally.”
