The nickel-nine spitter, Royce Da 5’9″ is back with “The Album,” the brand new album from M.I.C. Records. Royce is most known for the 2000 single “Boom,” a DJ Premier-produced street banger or for his appearance on the Willa Ford hit, “I Wanna Be Bad” – however, he earned his rhyming stripes through his affiliations with Eminem and Dr. Dre. A fellow Detroit native, Royce was first introduced to Eminem while Slim Shady was selling his EP at a rap show and the two soon formed the rap duo Bad Meets Evil (Royce played the role of the Bad side). Teaming up on the 1999 “The Slim Shady LP,” they produced and then traded rhymes on the song “Bad Meets Evil” and went on to record the equally hyphy “Scary Movies,” “Rock City,” and others. Through his relationship with the 8 Mile resident, Royce has either beefed with, made appearances alongside, or ghost written for some of the biggest names in Hip Hop including Mobb Deep, Puff Daddy, Raekwon, Talib Kweli, Kanye West, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Joe Budden, and more.

“The Album” follows up on 2007’s “The Bar Exam” with 13 tracks and guest verses from Talib Kweli and Raekwon and production by 9th Wonder, Notz, Green Lantern, and more. Hard beats are combined with even harder rhymes as only Royce can deliver with cadence tighter than snare drum. With tracks like “Heat To The Streets,” “Gun Music,” “Bad Guy,” and “Been Shot Down,” “The Album” is not suggested for the weak at heart or stock car sound systems and is more appropriately enjoyed with a pair of 12″ subwoofers and the windows rolled down. Royce Da 5’9″ continues his flawless rhyme delivery and Detroit City swagger and proves why bad raps better than evil and why you will continue to “ch-ch-check his fresh.”
