After appearing to share a firm reaction to rap-metal crew Limp Bizkit signing to Young Money/Cash Money this week, G.O.O.D. Music's Cyhi The Prynce has stepped up to kill speculation suggesting he has thrown shots toward Lil Wayne or Birdman.
Hopping on Twitter, Cyhi pointed out there was no ill intent behind comparing YMCMB to G.O.O.D. Music/Roc-A-Fella.
"Wow I didn't know that tweet went that far... I didn't realize I was that popular," Cyhi tweeted Friday (February 24) night.
"Y'all do know it's more richer hustlers selling mid than kush so I wasn't trying to diss nobody" (Cyhi The Prynce's Twitter)
Hours prior, Cyhi took to his Twitter page and compared the labels' worth.
"To me YMCMB is mid and Rocafella/GoodMusic is kush you sell more pounds of mid but which one would you rather smoke #imjustsayin," he tweeted Friday (February 24). (Cyhi The Prynce's Twitter)
Friday morning, Limp Bizkit's leader Fred Durst announced his new label home.
"The game is missing danger, electricity, and rock n roll!!!!" Cash Money Limp Bizkit," he tweeted Friday.
"Rock sh*t doesn't rock anymore! They say the whole game done went pop so I'm back in this ho! #CMLB" (Fred Durst's Twitter)
Following the recent Cash Money signings of rap veterans Busta Rhymes and Mystikal, "Why Stop Now" producer Sham "Sak Pase" Joseph spoke to SOHH about YMCMB's radio dominance.
"A lot of people are very indifferent about that decision," Sham told SOHH, referring to Busta's recent signing to Cash Money," but I think from a business aspect, it's got to be very attracting toward Google [Music] that Busta Rhymes has access to the biggest artists in the game right now. The reality of it is 70 percent of radio, I promise you, is controlled by Young Money. I don't see why there's a big issue. They're winning, so, I think a lot of people feel since he's been in the game for so long and has done so many things for hip-hop, he probably could have started his own label and do x, y and z. But they're a huge machine that's winning." (SOHH)
