Mixtape: Cyhi Da Prynce ‘Royal Flush 2’ Cover, Plus He Give Details On Kanye West Tour

Kanye West’s protegé Cyhi Da Prynce is gearing up to release his upcoming mixtape Royal Flush 2. The Atlanta native rose to fame in September 2010; after signing to Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music. He appeared on the track “Looking For Trouble,” off Kanye West’s last album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Over the years, Cyhi has released four mixtapes, with the latest being Royal FlushBillboard.com caught up with CyHi while he was in Atlanta rehearsing.”Below are a few excerpts from Cyhi interview with Billboard:

You’re about to go on a Heineken-sponsored tour with Kanye and Pusha T. For those who’ve seen you before, how will your live show be different this time around?

CyHi: I have a budget on this show! [Laughs] I get to have little props and banners and lights and different things of that nature. Dancers. And I get to bring my friends out so they get to see what I do, and we’re all going to be able to promote a lot better because I get to bring my street team, my promotional team with me. It’s going to be big fun, and it’s my chance to be on a major tour. It’s the first one that I’ve ever done, so… let’s get it.

How’s working with Kanye West and co. changed how you make music?

I get better tracks, get better music, and he teaches me how to create. It ain’t even that he teaches me how to create songs — I watch him do it and he assumes that I can imitate him in my style and my own songs. A lot of times we rub off on each other. It’s like playing with Jordan: If you’re Scottie Pippen and you see Jordan do a move, it’s like, ‘Yo, I’m gonna integrate that into my game,’ you know what I’m saying? So I might not tell him, but you know…
