Royce Da 5’9” 

Death is Certain


Royce Da 5’9”
Death is Certain
(Koch)
Royce Da 5’9” has a delivered a solid album of subdued but impassioned hip-hop, taking the high (and likely less profitable) road of not using his feud with Eminem. Focusing on philosophy and the state of the hip-hop scene, Royce avoids the self-important waste many people would have created in his situation. It’s kind of like a smack in the nuts, then, when he throws in some borderline anti-Semitic comments. This puts Royce’s integrity in question, and everything else suffers as a result.
