Royce Da 5’9: The ALLEGORY

Michigan’s finest word smith Royce Da 5’9 will be dropping his 8th studio album tomorrow Friday February 21. With lots of controversy over the album cover art work and Royce speaking up on a lot of issues we are dealing with in America today. This album is said to be personally similar to his previous album. Book of Ryan which was released back in 2018. With lyrics addressing issues with his father from his childhood. This album was viewed as dark. I felt like it was his own form of a diary. Well sharing those feelings and stories with the world. It was the start of a growth within a artist and more as a man. Hits on the album and collaborations with Em on “Caterpillar” J-Cole with a beautiful visual on “Boblo” and songs like “legendary” and “Cocaine” stirred up feelings.

With history of starting his career back in the late 90’s with mentor, friend and DETROIT family Eminem. Royce made a name for him self On the Bad Meets Evil album showing that once again that they both are Detroit’s heavy hitters. Being a hiphop head who looked to sites like DatPiff and AllHipHop I been following Royce since 2009. Personally coming across my very first track “Microphone” off of the Slaughterhouse album. I instantly fell in love with the combination of 4 artist I f*cked with heavy and still f*ck with today. Royce sits side by side 3 other members of Slaughterhouse  including Joe Budden, Crooked I, and Joell Ortiz. Now in the early months of 2020 we can expect a 22 track list project with features including T.I, Crooked I, Cyhi Da Prynce, West Side Gunna, Benny the Butcher and many more. The first single of the album “Black Savage” was released back in November 2019. Giving us our first feel of the album. Following further releases “Upside Down” feat. Ashley Sorrell and Benny the Butcher “Overcomer” feat. West Side Gunn and “I don’t age” This album is a form of growth after addressing issues from The Book of Ryan album. He focuses on personal issues like therapy, mental health and a apology to his father. Royce continues to be lyrically dominate while showing generations of all ages that communication and addressing issues is the answer and first step to becoming a better HipHop. Make sure you catch the album drop again TOMORROW Friday 21st. Let’s be better and less bitter! Trusting  the process and bringing the hype LenorMunster
