CyHi The Prynce believes mistaken identity led to assassination attempt on his life
So far, no suspects have been identified for the February shooting.
CyHi The Prynce believes mistake identity led to the near-fatal attempt on his life last month.
The G.O.O.D. Music signee spoke to HipHopDX about the attempted assassination that took place while he was driving down an Atlanta highway. “To me, I feel like it could have been a mistaken identity because I do have a vehicle that a lot of other stars and MCs have that are here, artists that are here,” he said. “But also, when I’m out of town and I’m doing my Wyoming thing, Sunday Service and writing for other artists, I do have loved ones and friends who might be indulging in things that may not necessarily connect to me or I may necessarily not know about because I’m not in the loop like I was when I was a lot younger.”
“When you grow up and people are feuding and it’s a lot of street beef and it’s a lot of rap beef — everybody’s kind of involved,” he added. “Sometimes people may think that you’re more involved than what you are due to your past affiliations. So, it could be that, or like I said, it could be just something [like] a random mistaken identity. I really haven’t gotten to the bottom of it, but I’m just at this part — staying out of the way until I get more information on it.”
As REVOLT previously reported, the shooting caused the “No Dope On Sundays” emcee to get into a serious car accident. After the crash, the shooters reportedly circled back and attempted to finish the job, but were unsuccessful.
So far, no suspects have been identified for the shooting, which CyHi understands is a part of “our culture.”
“Unfortunately man, in our culture, it’s not cool to talk to the police,” he added. “It’s not cool to cooperate and different things like that. So, a lot of murders and a lot of assaults and different things that go on in the minority or Black community don’t get solved due to our lack of cooperation or respect for law enforcement.”
