Royce da 5'9" shares a new track and video: "Which Is Cool."
To rev up the anticipation for his upcoming album, Layers, Royce da 5'9" has shared a new track, "Which Is Cool," along with an accompanying video. The track is a "pre-album bonus" that won't be included on Layers, but regardless, it's a sharp take on some of the more lamentable trends in the rap game as well in the streets.
Royce has been sober for a few years now, so the new video, which takes place in a liquor store, finds him coming face-to-face with what was once a weakness, and emerging unbothered. During his trek through the store, he notices the same mind over matter mentality doesn't prevail with most of those whom he encounters -- "which is cool," he remarks. Royce is content to paint his surroundings as he sees them, with the hope that the real will reveal itself.
