Cyhi Da Prynce

When: Sun., May 26, 9 p.m. 2013

You might remember CyHi The Prynce's guest verse on the song "So Appalled" from Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He ends it with a trail of twisted metaphors: "You haters got Ph.D.'s/Y'all just some major haters and some math minors/Tiger Woods/Don't make me grab iron." Apparently, West only wanted the Def Jam/G.O.O.D. Music signee to help write the hook, but while Kanye was away from the studio, CyHi stole an opportunity to record a whole verse on the end of the song. The idea worked, but it was indicative of a larger issue surrounding the continued delay of CyHi's seemingly certain stardom. Despite his relative success as a busy mixtape emcee with a knack for getting a lot out of homonyms and analogies, Kanye and his cadre haven't prioritized the release of CyHi's debut album, The Hardway Musical. His two appearances on last year's Cruel Summer compilation seemed conciliatory and minor compared to the material on his Royal Flush, Ivy League Club and Ivy League: Kick Back projects, which is what he'll come armed with on this stop of the Coast 2 Coast Live tour. —Eric Tullis
