CyHi The Prynce is the king of humility. With the release of his 2017 album No Dope on Sundays, CyHi finally got himself off the G.O.O.D. Music bench and into some spotlight. A skilled writer with a no-hard-feelings demeanor, it’s no surprise that when CyHi recently revealed he was originally meant to work on the Black Panther Soundtrack, he doesn’t sound the least bit bitter.
“I was offered to work on the Black Panther soundtrack, but that was early on until Kendrick came on," he told Complex. “Somebody from their team reached out to me because I had ‘Nu Africa.’ So I guess I was somebody that they considered being a part of the soundtrack. But I don't know if they were going to let me do the whole thing or nothing like that. I know they wanted to put a couple of records on there.
“But then I think once they got Kendrick in there and he started curating, he kind of made his own album, so they didn't do it like that. It’s all good. I just got a bunch of dope records that I was going to give y’all last year, but I got some better ones that I put on there, and I’m going to spice it up, and when you hear it you’re going to be like, ‘Oh my God.’”
As it stands, it seems that when CyHi The Prynce was originally tapped for the soundtrack, he got to work on a few songs. However, once Kendrick Lamar came on to curate the record and took over creative control, CyHi’s music didn’t make the final cut as Lamar wanted to build an album from the ground up.
The good news for CyHi fans, though, is that he did not trash his Black Panther material, and it seems to be on the horizon of dropping along with some even newer, better music.
