Cyhi Da Prynce Releases His Verse Over Kanye West’s “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1”
Who is to really say how many forms and incarnations the tracks on Kanye West's The Life of Pablo may take. On Thursday (Oct. 6), an early version of "Famous" leaked online, showing that before Rihanna and Swizz Beatz were featured on the song, Young Thug was front and center, even supplying a closing verse. Now, CyHi Da Prynce, who has been embedded in Kanye's G.O.O.D. Music camp for some time now, has posted two videos to Instagram sharing a verse he laid overtop "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1." "Y’all ain’t got this beat, nigga," he says, speaking facts and stunting at the same time.
Like most CyHi verses, there is plenty to unpack here, with the rapper providing a little pantomime as he drives a BMW and raps along. At one point, he raps, "Man of the house even before I growed up/When them niggas talked down, I’m the one who spoke up/CyHi, I’m a leader like four cups/Boy I’m a Caesar like a low cut."
It's damn near impossible to say with any certainty whether this is a remix, a scrapped version or something else entirely, but it adds to the growing tapestry that is Kanye's seventh studio album, with songs existing like alternate universes, each with its own special addition or spin. Here's to hoping new verses, cuts and versions keep cropping up in the coming weeks.
Many have wondered whether CyHi is still officially in G.O.O.D., as the label's official Twitter account recently posted a picture of their current roster without his name. CyHi's access to this beat perhaps proves he's still down with the camp.
