PRhyme, the duo of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″, found some unexpected success late last year when they dropped their self-titled debut album.

The duo of Royce da 5’9″ and DJ Premier, also known as PRhyme, will be dropping a deluxe version of their self-titled debut album from last year.

The track, produced by DJ Premier, was recently premiered on Beats 1, which can be heard after the jump.
Last year, veteran emcee Royce da 5’9” — holding down Detroit since ’99 — teamed up with venerable hip-hop producer DJ Premier to form PRhyme, and they’ve been on a tear since. That same year, they dropped their self-titled debut album, which housed single ”Courtesy” as well tracks ”U Looz”, ”PRhyme”, and ”You Should Know”. Looking to make the most out of the fourth quarter, the duo returns with a deluxe edition of their self-titled debut. And after highlighting the seven minute extended version of ”Mode” earlier in the week, Royce and Premo are sharing the full-length version of their ”Courtesy” video as well. In the video, the PRhyme brothers find themselves in dire circumstances: they’re stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car — nowhere to go. Naturally, their minds begin to wander: they imagining themselves living ”the good life” (driving an operational car, chilling on a boat, surrounded by beautiful women). However, one thing is for certain, and that’s Royce and Premo cannot forget about where they come from: nothing. Check out PRhyme’s visuals for ”Courtesy” — off of their self-titled debut album from last year — after the jump. Additionally, be on the lookout for the extended version of the album, due out sooner than later.
PRhyme, the duo of DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9″, found some unexpected success late last year when they dropped their self-titled debut album. This collaboration is looking to pick up on that late effort heroics from last year by continuing releasing music under the PRhyme moniker. And today is a good day as they’re sharing “Mode” featuring Logic, another terrific rapper who put out a solid project last year. This track is a loosie that will be appearing on the Southpaw soundtrack (!!!), which is also said to be curated by Detroit’s Eminem. (Who is one-half of Bad Meets Evil with Royce — just saying.) Either way this is a solid all-around track that’s getting us here at iHipHop hyped on some more PRhyme ish in the future. Listen after the jump.
