Doesn’t disappoint

Ryan "Young Mr." Stills

Been waiting

First PRhyme 2, now Book of Ryan. This is gonna be the year of 5'9. Can't wait


Classic Album

Well done, sir. Instant classic. Royce gets deeply personal, shows amazing growth as an artist and man, all the while spitting bars of fire with that Detroit, f**k you cadence and vocabulary I've appreciated since the late 90's.

I never listen to skits and I can't seem to skip a single one. Click play and listen cover to cover for great hip hop the way it should be. You'll be inspired if you've got or are getting your ish together, but if you've been on some bullish, watch out. You might just have to change yo life! Haha

Royce, I'm sure you’re a** is way to famous, busy, and not givin' a..to read this, but I saw an interview where you said you wanted a classic album. You nailed it. This album is solid through and through. It's the kind of album that ages well. Also, PRyhme 1 and 2, absolute classics.

You were great at what you do all along, but a sober 5'9" is arguably in GOAT contention. Keep showing the industry where it should be focused. The true hip hop fans are still here.

About Royce da 5'9"

Whenever anyone mentions the name of Detroit rapper Royce da 5'9", a whole list of other names surround it. First, people mention his passing resemblance to LL Cool J. Others might know him as the guy who teamed up with teen singer Willa Ford on her 2001 hit "I Wanna Be Bad." He is also known as the rapper who got a major boost from legendary producer DJ Premier, who produced his 2000 hit "Boom." Mostly, though, people associate him with Eminem. Royce and Eminem have rolled together since their early days in Detroit and have worked together on several occasions. With the release of his 2002 album, Rock City, Royce da 5'9" made a name for himself. Death Is Certain would arrive in 2004, with Independent's Day following a year later. The year 2009 would be particularly fruitful, with his Street Hop album arriving alongside the self-titled debut from his hip-hop supergroup, Slaughterhouse, which featured Royce, Joell Ortiz, Joe Budden, and Crooked I. Two years later would be just as busy, with Royce's Success Is Certain and his team-up with Eminem, the Hell: The Sequel album issued under the duo's moniker of Bad Meets Evil, both landing in 2011. The Slaughterhouse album Welcome To: Our House followed in 2012, then 2016 saw the release of both his solo mixtape Trust the Shooter and his solo album Layers. Royce has also issued two albums with DJ Premier as PRhyme.~ Jon Azpiri
