Royce Da 5'9"
We haven't heard much solo material from Royce Da 5'9" lately, as the rapper has been putting focus on PRhyme. The duo consisting of Royce and DJ Premiere are gearing up for a re-release of their self-titled debut, and they've also hinted at a follow-up PRhyme 2. After giving fans a new track with Joey Bada$$ off the PRhyme deluxe edition, Royce decides to let us hear him over someone else's production for a minute.
PRhyme Feat. Joey Bada$$
DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″, together known as PRhyme, are gearing up for the release of the deluxe edition of their debut album. "Deluxe" in that it'll feature several new tracks, a few of which the duo has already shared, most recently "Highs and Lows" feat. MF Doom and Phonte.
Gangsta Shit (Freestyle)
Royce Da 5'9"
Keeping his weekly #MixtapeMonday series alive, DJ Absolut decides to come through today with another one. After taking on classic instrumentals from Prodigy, Cassidy, and Swizz Beatz recently, Absolut decides to flip G-Unit’s “Gangsta Shit” and give Royce Da 5’9” the mic top spit his magic. You already know this about to be packed with a lyrical punch. Take a listen and let us know what you think.
Rittz Feat. Yelawolf, Royce Da 5'9" & KXNG Crooked
Rittz taps Yelawolf, Royce Da 5'9', and KXNG Crooked to spit a verse on his remix to "LAF", which originally appeared on his acclaimed 2014 album Next To Nothing. Macabre string-and-tuba production courtesy of Matic Lee is suitable for the subject matter at hand (y'all lame as fuck!) and may sound familiar to Tech N9ne fans (Rittz is signed to Strange Music).
Statik Selektah Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Statik Selektah and Royce Da 5'9" are a match made in heaven. Hailing from Boston, Statik has always had a New York-leaning style, but as we've seen on "Detroit Vs. Everybody," he works well with the Motor City's best as well. On "Crystal Clear," Statik provides a sample that darts left-and-right unexpectedly, but ties it together with some hard kicks and snares. Royce gets the challenge he deserves, riding the fluttering flutes and strings with his own technical flurries.
Revolutionary Ride Music
DJ EFN Feat. Your Old Droog, Royce Da 5'9", OC & Reks
Last week, DJ EFN brought together two of hip-hop's most active political minds, Killer Mike and Crooked I, together for a song called "If U Run," and today he's back with another cut featuring some crazy names. "Revolutionary Ride Music" features Your Old Droog, Royce Da 5'9", OC and Reks.
Willie The Kid Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Willie The Kid has prepped a new album, The Fly 3, as well as a 48-minute short film "The Fly" film to go along with LP. With both pieces dropping today (you can buy them together or separately, head here to do so), Willie gives us one of the more anticipated collabos off the project, the Royce Da 5'9"-featured "The Watch," which was mixed by The Alchemist and produced by Budgie.
Just a few hours after slaying verses on Eminem's "Detroit Vs. Everybody" and Shady XV cypher, Royce Da 5'9'' returns with the title track from his upcoming collaborative LP with DJ Premier. Give the track a listen and let us know what you think. It's produced by Premier, of course, using Adrian Younge samples. Meanwhile, if you're feeling the track, be sure to pre-order a copy of PRhyme on iTunes today. The album hits stores on December 9th.
Detroit Vs. Everybody
Eminem Feat. Royce Da 5'9", Big Sean, Danny Brown, DeJ Loaf & Trick-Trick
Hours after hitting us with the Shady CXVPHER, Eminem is back again, this time recruiting his hometown homies Royce Da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Trick Trick, and Dej Loaf for a new record called “Detroit Vs. Everybody”.
Papa Roach Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
If you had a nu metal phase in the early 2000s, you're no doubt familiar with Papa Roach. A California-based band that blew up on a international level with their smash hit single "Last Resort," the group ultimately fell victim to a changing music landscape and, like so many of those classic punk rock bands (we're looking at you, Blink-182), faded away from the mainstream.
Joell Ortiz Feat. Royce Da 5'9", Joe Budden & KXNG Crooked
Joell Ortiz is preparing his new solo record, House Slippers for a September 16th release, and today he's shared a new track from the upcoming album. While it's Ortiz's record, he's recruited all of Slaughterhouse for the occasion, with Royce da 5'9", Joe Budden and Crooked I adding verses.
Kid Vishis Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
We haven't heard from Kid Vishis since last year, but today he's returned, omce again working with frequent collaborator, Royce Da 5'9". Kid last worked with the Slaughterhouse rapper on his track, "Straight Out Of Detroit".Much like their other duets, "Coward" finds the two rappers giving us some ferocious rhymes on a classically Detroit instrumental. His brand new album, Timing Is Everything is available right now on iTunes.
Twerk Dat Pop That
Trick-Trick Feat. Eminem & Royce Da 5'9"
In the past few months, Trick-Trick has made a name for himself as the self-proclaimed mayor of Detroit and the implementer of the city's "no fly zone," which recently barred Rick Ross from performing in the D. Following the release of his mixtape The Godfather 3, he's teamed with two of the biggest names his city's ever produced: Eminem and Royce Da 5'9".
The Imperial (CDQ)
Statik Selektah Feat. Action Bronson, Royce Da 5'9" & Black Thought
As far as lyrics-first rappers go, you can't really hope for much of a better trio than Action Bronson, Royce Da 5'9" and Black Thought, all of whom guest on Statik Selektah's new track. "The Imperial" was premiered last night on Shade 45, and now we've got a (pretty audio high quality) radio rip.
One For The Money [Mananz Remix]
Royce Da 5'9" Feat. Diamond D & Skillz
Last week, we reported on the release of independent Brooklyn hip-hop label Coalmine Records' new compilation album Unearthed (hosted by DJ Revolution), which they've dropped in cele
No Fly Zone
Trick-Trick Feat. Royce Da 5'9" & K-Young
Trick-Trick is credited with making his hometown of Detroit a "No Fly Zone". This means that rappers who do not collaborate with Detroit artists, or contribute to the scene are not welcome to perform within its borders. The rapper has gone at Trick Daddy, Yung Berg, and Styles P for reasons related to this, and has now released a song named after the policy of his city. The song acts as anthem promoting the laws Trick has created, which he illustrates in his verse, threatening any rapper that dares to come to his city without permission.
Don't Get In My Way
King Los Feat. Royce Da 5'9" & Shanica Knowles
King Los has basically given away a free album for fans today, with the release of Zero Gravity II. The mixtape has plenty of original production, and only a few freestyles. One of the original cuts produced by Dot N Pro is this one featuring Detroit rhymesayer Royce Da 5'9" and Shanica Knowles.
Talk Is Cheap
Twigg Martin Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Brooklyn and Detroit connect on this track, as Twigg Martin, a rising NY rapper, nabs Royce Da 5'9" for his leak. We're not very familiar with Twigg, but he's prepping a new release, Good Mornin’ America, for later this year, and this is the first taste. It's definitely got a New York feel to it, with lots of percussion making for a hard instrumental. Production comes from Buda Da Future and Grandz Muzik.
Ty Farris Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Give I Promise a listen - it's a new offering from Ty Farris, featuring Royce Da 5'9". It was dropped on Monday, November 18th, 2013. Ty Farris's musical situation is improving with every new release, and I Promise will most definitely help the cause. It's a fine addition to the growing body of work Ty Farris has been developing since stepping foot in the game. We're looking forward to what Ty Farris has in store.
Give BOOM Freestyle (Radio Rip) a spin - it's a new offering from Emilio Rojas. It was dropped on Wednesday, November 6th, 2013. Emilio Rojas's rap artistry continues to improve with every release, something which is most definitely evidenced on BOOM Freestyle (Radio Rip) . His ever-expanding catalogue is definitely better for it, and we're looking forward to the next piece of the puzzle - aren't you?
