Kanye West's new protege, CyHi the Prynce, recently explained his relationship with his king, Kanye. "[Kanye] is really on his kingdom, his Pharaoh, his Roman days - that's his terminology these days," 'CyHi the Prynce explained. "And I call myself 'The Prynce,' so he was like: 'If I call myself "The King," I need a prince. And this is perfect.' That's how that went together. A lot of people don't know that." A lot of people definitely did not know about the game of king and prince you two guys are playing. What would G Rap say? [MTV]

"These rappers ought to be shame of they damn selves, I'm talkin bout the mc' s rappin over this pop techno music. I believe in pimpin the system but got DAMN! not like this...I like the idea of no distinction in race when it comes 2 music, but SOULkeepers, U dont give up the boom bip and the hump 4 the payday.
