Civil Interview: CyHi The Prynce Talks G.O.O.D. Music & Reveals Features on ‘No Dope On Sundays’
by Lupe LLerenas
2017 is looking to be a promising year for you CyHi. You just announced your solo album via your new label, Brooklyn Knights/Sony RAL. Talk to us about the upcoming album and the label.
CyHi The Prynce: My debut album is called No Dope On Sundays, and it’s set for this summer. The album has a lot of different features but what I wanted to do with this album was to show my different style and concepts that I have. At the end of the day, I think it’s just a variation of me in a week of my life. There was a week in my life that was very off for me. That same week, I learned my mother has an illness, my friend got shot, along with some other stuff.
As for my new label, Brooklyn Knights is an Indie/Sony label that I wanted to go with because I feel like they had what I lacked on, and when I say “lacked on,” I mean radio wise. Those guys specialize at radio promotion, mainstream Hip-Hop, and radio over all.
You mentioned that there’s a variety of features on No Dope On Sundays, can you give us a hint of who’s on the project and how many tracks it’ll have?
CyHi The Prynce: Right now, I’m looking at 12 to 15 tracks, and you know the whole fam is on the album. From Pusha to Trav, to ScHoolboy, and Ye is executive producing it so he’s definitely in there. This is what Hip-Hop and fans have been waiting for!
To biggest thing is to hear your favorite rapper rap on every genre of music but still is Hip-Hop. It brings a different dynamic to it so that’s what my album entails.
Kanye is the executive producer for your album, what can we expect from him?
CyHi The Prynce: Ye asked me what I wanted to do and what we wanted to project to sound like. He gave me the directions I needed to go in. He knows all the people to put it together.
