CyHi The Prynce - James Harden


I fuck with CyHi The Prynce. In this day and age when every rapper with 1,000 Youtube views thinks he's a superstar I must say it's dope to see CyHi, a member of the mighty G.O.O.D. Music, be down to Earth and honest enough to admit that he still hasn't quite made it to the starting lineup. In my opinion the ATL native is ready to take the next step in his career and if he keeps making songs like this I don't think I'll be the only one.
