The term “old Kanye” gets thrown around so much that Yeezy even made a song about it on The Life of Pablo: “I miss the old Kanye, straight from the Go Kanye, chop up the soul Kanye, set on his goals Kanye,” he says on “I Love Kanye.” In a new interview with Hot 97, CyHi The Prynce spoke on the return of the so-called “old Kanye.”
“I tell people man, I finally know what people mean when they say “the old Kanye,” he says. See, I done seen him do so much great stuff, I don’t care if it’s the old Kanye, new Kanye. But when I went in there and saw him make 3 beats from scratch in 20 minutes, I was like “oh, this what they talking about.” Like, when you make your own beat and rap on your own beat.”
