Royce 5’9″ speaks to The Rap Up and gives some intricate details about his forthcoming solo album Book of Ryan. Watch to see what his inspiration behind the album was, what songs Logic and Eminem are on and so much more.
Royce 5’9″ keeps the heat coming before Book Of Ryan drops next month. The Detroit emcee scoops up the services of Shady’s newest signee Boogie for “Dumb” and these two emcees go completely bananas over production from S1 and Epikh Pro. May 4th can’t come soon enough.
DJ Premier and Royce 5’9″ are about to hit the road in support of their critically acclaimed PRhyme 2 album that kicks off on May 30th in Philly and wraps on June 15th in Los Angeles.
“I look forward to getting back on the road and touring the country with Preem as PRhyme” Royce asserted. “We had so much fun making this album and having the ability to share our vision with the world via our one of a kind live show is a great reward.” Further, DJ Premier added “PRhyme 2 brings another chapter of a unique union of what me and Royce present when we form our legacies together as PRhyme. It’s only right to double up both projects and light the fuse.”

The second single from Royce 5’9″s Book Of Ryan arrives with “Stay Woke.” The Detroit emcee delivers again with introspective bars that give a deeper look into the life of Royce that is coupled with his usual wicked wordplay.
Royce 5’9″ and DJ Premier sit down with HotNewHipHop to talk about their second installment of PRhyme, working with 2 Chainz and if Preemo will ever dabble in Trap Music.
Shortly after dropping the song, Royce and J. Cole serve up the visuals for “Boblo Boat.” Both emcees visual recount the narratives dropped on the stellar song from Royce’s forthcoming Book of Ryan album.
May 4th is the date that Royce 5’9″ will unveil his Book of Ryan album to the world. It’s a little over a month away but feels like forever. To hold us over, we get a hit of Nickel and J. Cole trading verses on “Boblo Boat.”
We’re still in the middle of blasting PRhyme 2 at ignorant levels when Royce 5’9″ decides to cut loose the artwork and track listing for Book of Ryan. You’ll notice the collaboration with J. Cole (“Boblo Boat”) is featured on there but no other collaborations have been announced. Pre-orders start at midnight for the album that Royce has called his “greatest piece of work.”
