CelebnMusic247.com reports that Cydel Charles Young, better known as Cyhi the Prynce is lucky to be alive after flipping his vehicle and crashing into a tree.
According to reports, Atlanta PD responded to a car accident on February 11 at 11:41 PM and found an empty Bentley SUV flipped on its side off the road. Cops say while they were on the scene, the driver — Cyhi — walked back to his vehicle.
The police say Cyhi The Prince told them a red Maserati started chasing him on the highway, followed him as he got on an exit ramp and began shooting at his SUV. That’s when he says he lost control and crashed into a tree.
Cyhi told cops he immediately got out of his vehicle and fled on foot into the woods to get away from the shooter.
The 36-year-old-ATL rapper explains:
Today is a day about love, but in my city (the city of Atlanta) there’s no love here anymore. a couple of 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 adamant about taking me off this earth.
Chyi added that He believes this was an attempt on his life:
They were 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.
The rapper says after he crashed the suspects returned and shot up his vehicle some more, adding:
I’m trying my best to keep a level head, but when you don’t know who is after you it’s 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 peaceful meeting.
Cyhi says he wants whoever tried to kill him to know he doesn’t want revenge … he just wants “understanding and closure.”
There are too many lives being lost over the 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 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 please let’s 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 e
The rapper suggests this alleged murder attempt is part of a bigger issue in Atlanta — violence among various crews “fueled by the music” … and he’s hoping there can be a summit to put an end to it.
