Grafh Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Grafh has been a rapper of notoriety in the New York scene for quite some time. (NFL Street enthusiasts may remember his gritty NYC banger "I Don't Care.") Today, he releases his new single "Wrong One" featuring featuring Royce da 5'9" and Pete Rock in an HNHH premiere. Rapping over the sort of nostalgic Pete Rock beat you could bump on repeat for hours, Grafh warns detractors of his wrath before turning the mic over to Royce, who delivers his usual melange of devastatingly witty punchlines and wordplay.
Royce Da 5'9" Feat. Pusha T & Rick Ross
Rpyce Da 5'9" will be releasing his Layers LP in a few weeks time, and today he's released the title track from the project, complete with some exciting features. The lush loop is reminiscent of the work of JUSTICE League, meaning Rick Ross is perfectly at home, while Pusha T and Royce both effortlessly find their pocket on the gigantic sample.
Trust The Shooter
Royce Da 5'9" Feat. Smoke DZA
With the clock striking midnight, Royce Da 5’9” decided to keep his word and release his highly anticipated free EP called Trust The Shooter. Laced with 12 tracks in total, the project features guest contributions from Smoke DZA, Styles P, Tiara, DJ Premier, Jahlil Beats, Nottz, Araabmuzik, and many more.
Royce Da 5'9"
Royce Da 5’9” hasn’t been holding back on his return, dropping track after track during the run to the release of Layers next month. We’re happy to premiere his next track “Savages,” which is set to release on his upcoming EP-before-the-LP Tabernacle: Trust The Shooter.
Smoke DZA & Manolo Rose Feat. Royce Da 5'9"
Two different boroughs are represented on this new track from Harlem’s Smoke DZA and Brooklyn’s Manolo Rose. “Black Elite” is the first single from the duo’s forthcoming collaborative project 867 Madison. It features the rejuvenated Royce Da 5’9”, as all three emcees come correct with their verses.
Dead President Heads
Royce Da 5'9"
Layers is only a few weeks away, but apparently Royce Da 5’9” had his creative juices flowing at those recording sessions because he’s got even more new music on the way. “Dead President Heads” will appear on another EP titled Tabernacle: Trust The Shooter and will drop before Layers.
Royce Da 5'9"
Fresh off of his announcing his upcoming album Layers last week, Royce Da 5’9” has blessed us with the first song off of the album. “Tabernacle” has vaguely Christian sound to it, but you can be sure Nickel Nine isn’t doing any preaching.
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.
Ransom Feat. Royce Da 5'9" & 3D Na'Tee
Almost a year removed from his Pain & Glory album, and New Jersey artist Ransom is already working on his follow up project Soul Killa. Today, he decides to start the rollout process for it by sharing the project’s title track on his soundcloud page.
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.
Apollo Brown & Ras Kass Feat. Royce Da 5'9", Xzibit & Bishop Lamont
Generally speaking, I do my best to avoid any song referencing the genitalia of any species in the animal kingdom that isn't human. For Apollo Brown & Ras Kass, however, I was willing to make an exception. Fortunately not about interspecies relations, "Giraffe Pussy" is actually a reference to how high one might be. (To my knowledge, Ludacris made the reference first on "Hip Hop Quotables" back in 2003.)
A few weeks back, DJ Premier and Royce Da 5'9" announced that they'd be pairing up under the name "PRhyme" for a new joint album. Today, Sway premiered the first cut we've heard from the upcoming project, entitled "Courtesy."
