After establishing himself as a successful solo artist, he has grown to become a critical favorite, known especially for his entertaining, yet truthful musical rap lyrics.

Reid, Clive Davis, Mark Pitts, Ludacris, Lil John, Jazzy Fe, Scarface and Keith Sweat, but he eventually joined Hoodlum.

Big 4oes Chevy (2006), a Hoodlum Anthem, marked Cyhi Da Prynce's lyrical debut. Growing up, Prynce was a vibrant youth as he played several sports including football, basketball, and track and field in addition to singing in school choirs, and participating in school plays and dances. His parents, who raised Prynce in a Baptist church, were very strict in nature, as Prynce was not even allowed to listen to rap music until he was 12 years of age. Despite their 'tough-love', Prynce learned many lifelong lessons. ...show less
