Did you know that “Boom” wasn’t originally for Royce 5’9″? Any idea who that beat was supposed to be for? DJ Premier explains how Royce ended up with “Boom” and how this incredible beat was created. Sit back and enjoy the story behind this classic record.
It’s about time Royce 5’9″ had a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert. The living legend from Rock City delivers a stripped-down set of songs from his extraordinarily extensive catalog that spans two decades. From recent songs like “God Speed” to a classic such as the DJ Premier produced “Boom,” this is a treat for anybody who has been a fan of Royce over the years.
Ransom will be dropping his Se7en project on June 7 that focuses on each of the seven deadly sins. For “Greed,” Ransom connects with Royce 5’9″ and the two go crazy over Lord Sear production.
It’s been a year since Royce 5’9″ released his now Grammy-nominated album The Allegory. To commemorate the anniversary, Nickle drops a video for “I Don’t Age.” It’s a single shot that tracks Royce through a house but there are cameos from KXNG Crooked and Horseshoe Gang that will keep you on your toes visually.
Tobe Nwigwe has had a fantastic 2020 and will follow up his Pandemic EP with a full-length project Cincoriginals on December 13. With the release around the corner, Nwigwe grabs Black Thought and Grammy-nominated emcee Royce 5’9″ for the “Father Figure” video.

Royce 5’9″ and Grafh have delivered a few bangers over the past couple of months and the duo link up for the video to “Agenda” from Grafh’s “Oracle 3.”
Although his tour dates for The Allegory are sidelined indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, Royce 5’9″ gives us the closest thing to a live performance when he performs “Overcomer” for Vevo’s Ctrl Live Sessions.
Returning the favor for appearing on his album, Royce 5’9″ connects with Grafh for the DJ Green Lantern-produced “Agenda” from Grafh’s “The Oracle III.”
With The Allegory in heavy rotation, Royce delivers the undeniable frontrunner for 2020 freestyle of the year when he shows up with the LA Leakers and delivers an absolutely vicious assault of bars that will leave your head spinning.
