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.
