Dear Knowshi readers, you know we love introducing you to exciting people and projects. It’s what we do.
When we find music that adds sizzle to our hearts, we kindly think of you and find a way to make the introduction. Hip-hop artist and entrepreneur Prynce P, has come up with something we know you’ll like. Unfortunately, we found him a little too late and the project we’re gonna introduce you to is his last.
He’s leaving the game after 14 years of serious grinding. His parting gift “The Triple D Cypher” is one huge ball of lyrical onslaught wrapped up in a big ass cypher of 14 emcees. Yes, you read that correctly. 14 folks on one track! Prynce P doesn’t do anything in a small way and this track shows how a big vision can yield big results.
Alright. Enough introduction. Let’s dig in.
You’ve heard of cyphers before. A group of emcees get together and donate their lyrical bombs in circular fashion hitting us upside the head with rhyme after rhyme from one lyricist to the next. The good ones leave us stunned and hitting rewind just to re-hear the goodness. The best ones make it hard to decide who struck the hardest.
You may think 14 emcees on one track is crazy, but the end result is phenomenal.
Knowshi: Why is this the end? And why the cypher?
Prynce P: I hit all my personal goals but everyone kept saying, “P, you owe the city one more project”. So, the cypher is my last thing. I only wanted Dallas rappers. The hottest Dallas rappers since this was an ode to my city. For months, I did a lot of research on whose style and voice would go with who and it took us roughly 6 months from the start until the project was completed. We are currently wrapping up the music video for it.
Knowshi: Does “The Triple D Cypher” have a theme?
Prynce P: There’s no theme. They (the artists) asked me what they should rhyme about. I told them whatever is on your mind. If you notice, everyone talks about different topics, but somehow everything blends in. I said come to the studio and surprise me just don’t be disrespectful to anyone’s race and don’t talk about something that’s gonna get us all killed one day. Lol, but I know everyone on a personal basis so I wasn’t really worried about anything like that.
