Royce Da 5’9 should not need any introduction to anyone. So it should be of no surprise that he is preparing to release his most personal project to date this year. Layers will mark his 6th solo effort and comes on the heels of the critically acclaimed collaborative effort PRhyme with DJ Premier. The album will be released on April 15th and is distributed under his own Bad Half Entertainment imprint.
The lead single from the album “Tabernacle” was dropped a couple weeks ago and the video has now followed. The song describes in detail what Royce refers to the most important day in his life. The day his son was born, he lost his grandmother, and met Eminem. Those who have followed his career know that these three events have each molded his music in different ways. The video even features his son playing a young Royce. Check it out and pre-order your copy of layers below.

Ice-T’s documentary drops on June 15th, not sure if it’ll be playing anywhere in JXN. I might need to rally some people for a N.O. trip or Memphis? Who’s in?
Shady 2.0 should have an excellent run, IMO
Dope! That is all……….from Recovery
Dre + Eminem + DJ Khalil = DETOX….FTW…..
I’m a sucker for Hip Hop songs that are heart-felt and about real life situations. Just like “Reunion” by Slum Village and “One Life” by The Last Emperor, “Move On” by Slaughterhouse is a song about real life by 4 of the industries hottest emcees. And since I’m a Eminem + Royce Da 5’9 fan, it’s dope to hear Royce put his heart and mind out there like that. I’m excited to see what Shady does with Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf. If you haven’t picked it up, I suggest you run out and grab the new Slaughterhouse E.P., it’s got a real Boom Bap feel to it………

Not complete, and unsure what era this was from. But, I would have loved to hear a completed version of this track…..Eminem & Dre make good music together, you can’t deny this
