Georgia rapper, CyHi the Prynce got the chance of a lifetime after Kanye West flew him out to Hawaii while working on the project My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Later, he wound up appearing on Ye’s record “So Appalled” and signing to G.O.O.D Music but none of that went down with out a little push from Beyonce.
In a recent Montreality interview, CyHi The Prynce reveals how Beyonce helped him get signed and later addresses ghostwriting in the rap game. Check it out below.
“I was supposed to write a hook and some ideas for the chorus and then it became this long ass dope ass beat as y’all have heard. I just started writing to it because I was so happy to be there and I wasn’t tired. Everybody left the studio. Ye went with his girl and everybody scattered and went to the room. So I just left a verse at the end of the song so no one could hear it and Ye himself leaves the beat running after he played it for Jay and Beyonce. He just leaves it running and my verse just abruptly comes in. They was like, ‘Who the fuck is this?’ He never heard the rap either. They heard it and was like, ‘Yo, that was the dopest shit ever,’ and she was like, ‘Yo whoever that is you need to sign him.'”
