Royce Da 5’9 & DJ Premier’s “PRhyme 2” Released Early

PRhyme 2, counting days are over. Highly anticipated PRhyme 2 project arrives early.

DJ Premier and Royce Da second full collaboration come a week before its official March 16 release courtesy of an NPR First Listen.

“[Lil] Uzi Vert was supposed to be on it with us,” Preemo told NPR.

Royce explained “The more balance in Hip Hop, the better,” he said. When you say ‘mumble rap,’ who are you talking about? Rappers who can’t rap that well? Because there’s a such thing as being really good at what you do, but you’re not a lyricist. It doesn’t give me the authority to critique you as a lyricist if you’re not claiming to be a lyricist. It doesn’t make me an expert. It just means I do one thing; you do something else.”
