It’s fast turning into G.O.O.D. Music day here at SME with the number of related posts. For once, however, it isn’t all about Kanye.

Having received the honour of being selected as a member of the XXL 2011 Freshmen Class, Cyhi The Prynce’s celebrates by releasing the customary freestyle. Watch the video and see what he had to say on being selected below.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“It means a lot to me to just be known as one of the up-and-coming artists. I always like to say I got kept back twice from the Freshmen cover, but it’s a privilege just being amongst some of the best up-and-coming artists out right now and being publicized by the biggest hip-hop magazine. It’s a dream come true. It’s what every artist wanted to be. You know they want to see themselves on the cover of a magazine, or heavily publicized, so it’s an honor to me. It’s a blessing and a half. Right before I linked with Kanye, my car got repossessed. Everything wasn’t all peachy, peachy for me. I have a lot of plays this year due to me and this Kanye situation.

Freshman is like a stepping-stone. Most artists think this is the biggest point of their career. This is a stepping-stone to bigger and better things, especially with XXL. I want to have one with just my face on it, that’s the cool thing. I just need to stay working and capitalize off of every opportunity I get.”
