Civil Interview: CyHi The Prynce Talks G.O.O.D. Music & Reveals Features on ‘No Dope On Sundays’
by Lupe LLerenas
What do you call the rapper that influences the best rappers alive?
You call him CyHi The Prynce.
The Grammy-nominated rapper/songwriter is known for feeding ideas to the likes of Kanye West for songs like “New Slaves,” “All Day,” “Famous” and “Ultralight Beam.” But now after years of anticipation for a solo album, the Atlanta-raised artist is finally dropping his debut No Dope On Sundays.
“I’m not a weekend rapper,” says CyHi about the album’s title and direction. “I make music for Sunday through Thursday, real life, not fantasy. I want this album to touch everyone- even the most street dude; make him want to shut down his trap on Sundays, which could lead to him shutting down on other days too. We move on to the next thing so fast, I want this album to make them take at least one day to assess what they got going on.”
The KarenCivil.com team caught up with the ATL rapper at this year’s SXSW to talk about his debut solo album, No Dope On Sundays, new label: Brooklyn Knights/Sony RAL, G.O.O.D. Music and more.
