Rapper CyHi The Prynce recently let everyone know in a lengthy post on Instagram that there was an attempt on his life. His Instagram brought forward a lot of attention and a lot of concern about his well-being. It is unknown the magnitude of his injuries, but we are happy to hear that he’s still around.
According to the rapper, his vehicle got shot up, which forced him off the road and flipped his car. In the post, he doesn’t implicate anyone he believed to be involved in the attempt to take his life, but says that Atlanta is not the city of love like other people may think.
The post read: “Today is a day about love, but in my city (the city of Atlanta) there’s no love here anymore. a couple nights ago there was an attempt on my life… somebody tried to gun me down on the highway. I tried everything I could do to lose them, but they were adament about taking me off this earth. They where shooting at me while I was driving and even after my car flipped, hit a pole and crashed into a tree, they came back and shot the car up some more. At this point I don’t know if it was a mistaken identity, a robbery, or associated with something that I did when I was younger but I haven’t been in the streets in over a decade. I just want to know why and if there is anything I can do to fix the issue. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and I have tremendous love for my city … but it’s chaotic out here. I’m trying my best to keep a level head, but when you dont know who is after you its hard to wrap your mind around it and not be paranoid. By the grace of god and my lord and savior jesus christ I am still here. I just want to let the people know who were trying to kill me that i am not a bad person. I don’t want revenge, I just want understanding and closure. So everyone that’s in Atlanta right now, please protect yourself, stay out the way and be careful, because it could all be over in a split second. I understand there’s a lot of beef going on in my city between different crews, that is fueled by the music…but it is time that we all have a sit down and have a peace meeting. There are to many lives being lost over music. I know I’m not the king of my city or nothing, but the real leaders (i won’t say no names, but you guys know who you are) you all are extremely blessed to have the the careers that you have and be able to feed your family and loved ones. It’s time to stop the violence in Atlanta. I don’t have all the answers and I definitely don’t have the power to make it stop, but i do feel like somebody gotta step up and say something. So much love to every artist, label, hustler, and crew in my city pleaseee lets resolve our problems man. We don’t have to kill each other man. SMH thanks again, Atlanta. I wrote this letter to y’all with tears in my eyes.”
Honestly, the violence in the black community has got to stop. To many people are losing their lives to senseless killings. Put the guns down!
