CyHi the Prynce Fires Wild, Barbed Shots at Kanye West and Def Jam on New Track

He insinuates 'Ye is locked in the trunk of his car

The 101 Best Kanye West-Produced Songs That Don't Feature Kanye
We've hung on every word of Kanye West's for so long — in his verses, on his Twitter, in his interviews — that it's hard to remember sometimes that he first came to prominence saying nothing at all

Former G.O.O.D. Music member and now former Def Jam rapper CyHi the Prynce has just released a scathing new song called “Elephant In the Room” that packs no shortage of punches. Kicking off with a nasally naysayer demanding the long-awaited, never-delivered CyHi album, the track goes all the way in. “Hey ‘Ye, do you know what it feel like? / To really be signed to you in real life?” he asks his former mentor before praying that the two remain tight after he says what’s on his mind — which, to be honest, seems so unlikely.

“Cyhi is tired of being humble,” a press release says, and that’s no lie. Gunshots litter the song, the rapper spits fire about G.O.O.D. artist and low-hanging fruit Teyana Taylor, and, oh, there’s this lyric too: “Ain’t gon be no new Yeezy album / ‘Cause he in the trunk with his mouth taped / And his wrists wrapped.”
