Kanye West performs at the Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash Block Show at Philips Arena on June 20, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. 

CyHi da Prynce has released nine mixtapes but no studio albums -- something he's not very pleased about and blaming on his G.O.O.D. Music label boss, Kanye West

The Georgia rapper let this known loud and clear Wednesday, releasing a diss track called "Elephant in the Room," in which he shoots up the Def Jam offices and kidnaps Yeezy, locking him in a car trunk and driving off. 

The Cage the Elephant "Shake Me Down"-sampling track was released on Soundcloud with a G.O.O.D. Music logo on it, adding insult to injury. (Though the song was not officially released through any online stores.)

"Hey 'Ye, do you know what it feel like? / To really be signed to you in real life?" CyHi starts the trap, before getting into his manifesto, with complaints over West giving shine to Big Sean and Pusha T over him.  

Spin and HotNewHipHop are reporting Def Jam has ended CyHi's contract. Billboard reached out to confirm but had not heard back at publishing.
