Last year, Royce 5’9″ delivered an Album of the Year contender with Book of Ryan. To follow that, Royce delivers the exceptional “Field Negro” where he addresses America’s terrible history of slavery, the price of fame, Tory Lanez and so much more. It’s hard to deny Royce’s place as one of the finest lyricists of all time after another searing outing like this.

Royce 5’9″ finally dropped his highly anticipated Book of Ryan today and it was well worth the wait as Ryan Montgomery delivers his most personal album to date. Book of Ryan tells some very personal stories about Royce that we never knew. One of the standout tracks is “Power” where he delivers a true life narrative about domestic abuse, fake Timberland boots and holidays that helped shape who he is. Listen to it now and make sure you cop that album.
