2018 is looking like the return of real emcees dropping epic freestyles and let's just go ahead and salute Black Thought for bringing the energy back. Royce Da 5'9" and DJ Premier are currently rolling out their next collaboration album, Prhyme 2, which will be available next Friday. The story goes that Funk Flex awoke Royce out of his sleep to come and rap at Hot 97, and resulted in a barrage of crazy metaphors & potentially offensive punchlines to show he's not missing a beat. Over the past few years, Royce has stood out as a Fresh & Local favorite and has done a great job of reinventing himself in the new landscape of Hip-Hop without losing any of his true essence along the way. He can adapt to trap rhythms and flows while keeping his content fresh and he's always at home over traditional boom bap instrumentation as well. We're certainly looking forward to Prhyme 2 and even more excited for his next solo release Book of Ryan. Stay tuned for more!
