It’s been years in the making, but Royce Da 5’9” & DJ Premier’s long awaited PRhyme 2 project is finally right around the corner. Earlier this month, the two kicked off the campaign for it by announcing its release date March 16th, and sharing its lead single in the process called “Era,” which was accompanied by a music video as well. Having been relatively quiet since then, the Detroit lyricist and Houston producer decide to get back in promo mode today and share their second offering from it called “Rock It,” which can be yours for free when you pre-order the album now on iTunes.
Over some fresh scratches & production from DJ Premier, Royce delivers a sharp boom-bap record thats filled with witty analogies and his usual slick wordplay, something fans will appreciate.
Take a listen and let us know what you think. Look for a music video to be on the way as well.
I write for Sean Price and Dilla, my mic is Thriller
My ratchet blows is trapping souls like Bryson Tiller
They sprayed the crib, left lead in the ornans
And that's the very thing that gets me out the bed in the morning
I got the bread in the corner, got my career in the sauna
I got no fear of dishonor, I bled, lived through trauma
First the Fat Boys break up, then Bow Wow retires
Now, ya'll disrespecting the King
