If you thought Kanye West's Yeezus album title was just a little sacrilegious, think again. According to G.O.O.D. Music rapper Cyhi the Prynce, the title of 'Ye's new album is a lot deeper than folks give him credit for.
"A lot of people don't know Yeezus if you break it down is: 'Ye-Is-us," Cyhi told MTV news via a Skype interview on Tuesday.
Cyhi knows that Kanye won't do a ton of interviews surrounding the new LP, so he decided to deliver the message to the people. "I'll break it down to you because I don't care. 'Ye will let you sit there and beat yourself up about it," he told us. "He ain't gonna do no interviews. He gonna be like, 'Yeah it's Yeezus and that's what it's called and y'all gotta deal with it.'"
Prynce was in the studio for much of the recording of Yeezus. In fact, he receives writing credit on nine of the 10 tracks. ("Send It Up" is the only track where he doesn't receive a credit.) Cyhi says it isn't a ghostwriting situation where he is penning rhymes for Kanye, but rather writing by committee.
"I'm just in there with him, keeping him up, keeping the environment in the room. That's like one of my jobs I feel like, because they ask me to do it," he said. "We wrote a booklet of different things that could be put in here. The bible just wasn't wrote by Jesus. Inspirations came from everywhere that put this whole thing together."
