EDITORS’ NOTES

As hip-hop’s landscape changes, it’s tempting for older heads to wonder: What happened to “real” rap? PRhyme are only concerned with leading by example. The duo of DJ Premier and Royce da 5’9” bring boom-bap beats and concrete flows with all the flavor but none of the salt. “Streets at Night” and “Rock It” will please Primo fans hungering for perfectly weighted cuts. “Flirt” examines the lost art of getting numbers. And they do all this while mining Philly producer AntMan Wonder's catalog for source material. On “Everyday Struggle,” Royce lays out PRhyme's mindset: “I’m about the youth movement, not about ‘them against us.’”
