PRhyme, the collaborative project between Royce Da 5’9″ & DJ Premier, dropped their self-titled debut album this year (which you may stream in full here) and now the duo continues churning out some music to close out the year. Royce Da 5’9″ & DJ Premier are sharing the visuals for “PRhyme Time” this Thursday, which you may peep after the jump.
Royce da 5’9″ and DJ Premier have been keeping busy for the last few months, working on the release of their collaborative album PRhyme. The tandem of Royce and Premo have teased a few tracks, including the intro cut and “Courtesy” as well as the visuals for “U Loopz.” The project is duo out December 9th but you’re in luck as they’ve made it available for stream via NPR right now. PRhyme features guest spots from artists the likes of Schoolboy Q, Mac Miller, Common, Killer Mike, and Jay Electronica. Peep the stream after the jump.
Over the summer, Eminem promised that his Shady Records imprint would release a compilation titled Shady XV for Record Store Day Black Friday, November 28th. And now Em is treating everyone with the comp’s second track, the Detroit rap heavy “Detroit Vs. Everybody”. The track, loaded with many all-star Detroit rappers, is sure to make the D proud. Em is joined by Royce Da 5’9”, Big Sean, Danny Brown and DeJ Loaf for the Motor City anthem. Listen after the jump!
After sharing a few songs from their forthcoming collaborative project PRhyme, DJ Premier & Royce Da 5’9″ drop the visuals for “U Looz”. The project is duo out December 9th and features guest spots from artists the likes of Schoolboy Q, Mac Miller, Common, Killer Mike, and Jay Electronica. Check out the video for “U Looz” after the jump.
Apollo Brown and Ras Kass team up for “Giraffe Pussy” (catchy title, no?) with support from Royce Da 5″9′, Xzibit and Bishop Lamont. The track will be featured on their collaborative project Blasphemy, which sadly does not have a release date at the moment. In the meantime listen to the track after the jump.
After dropping two tracks from their forthcoming PRhyme collaborative project, Royce Da 5’9″ & DJ Premier go ahead and share the artwork (above) and tracklist. Needless to say it looks like it’ll be a solid project overall based on what we are seeing here. Nine total tracks with Preem handling production and a slew of awesome, awesome guest spots. Everything from Ab-Soul to Jay Electronica to Schoolboy Q to Killer Mike, there is something here for everyone. PRhyme will be out December 9th. Peep the tracklist for PRhyme after the jump!
Mark your calendars hip-hop aficionados because Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier have joined forces to drop PRhyme, a collaborative project due out December 9th. Initially conceived as a project between Slaughterhouse and Preem, Royce continued working with the legendary Gang Starr producer when the project fell apart. What started out as an EP developed into a full album featuring artists the likes of Schoolboy Q, Mac Miller, Common, Killer Mike, and Jay Electronica. You can listen to the first two tracks “Intro” and “Courtesy” after the jump.
Son of Greg is a thoughtful story about the origins of Royce and his current concerns. But the video, amusingly, features interludes wherein Jalen Rose (Nickel Nine’s buddy?) talking to Joe Budden about his prep for the soon-to-be legendary battle with Hollow Da Don. Joe seems confident and ready with his Slaughterhouse friends backing him all the way.
The reason I think Trick Trick possibly threatened Eminem and Royce to be on this track is inconsequential. But let’s just recognize that they don’t belong on a twerking song with him, that their verses sound like they were applied without knowing what the beat was and that Trick Trick only fits with these lyrical giants geographically and not in terms of talent. Anyway, twerk that, pop that after the jump.
Cyhi the Prynce and half of Slaughterhouse team for this remix. This is a bonus from his Black Hystori project, which names and pays tribute to black history’s icons. Joell gets the concept right while Cyhi talks about class differences and black leather. Track after the jump.
the unofficial tag-team is one of hip-hop’s quiet victories over other forms of music. while rock and jazz and r&b is often replete with dual acts like the singer and the drummer, or the keyboard player and the bassist, hip-hop tends to thrive on the power of the individual voice.
Sometimes wish there were separate Rap Awards for things like this…radio freestyling. Slaughterhouse does it probably better than anyone else who’s ever done it as a group. Maybe Wu Tang is in the picture if you edit them down to their giants. These guys are a class unto themselves though. They don’t need to make songs.
