PRhyme (Royce 5’9” & DJ Premier) “Rock It” With Tracklisting & Guests For PRhyme 2


 

Following the release of “Rock It” last week, today PRhyme drop the music video for the song that Vibe praises for “DJ Premier’s signature scratches” and Royce 5’9”’s “top-notch wordplay,” and Hypebeast calls a “hard-hitting record with a classic Hip-Hop sound.” In Billboard’s premiere of the video directed by Walu they say, “If it’s dope beats and dope rhymes that you are in search of, look no further than PRhyme 2.”

PRhyme, the collaborative project of DJ Premier and Royce 5’9”, will drop their highly anticipated album PRhyme 2 on March 16 via PRhyme Records. The duo recently revealed the full tracklist including features from 2Chainz, Big K.R.I.T., Rapsody, Yelawolf, Cee-Lo, Roc Marciano (among others) & Dave East who guests on the previously released single “ERA” called “hypnotic” by Rolling Stone.

The beauty of PRhyme comes from its sample source: Premier chooses only one artist to flip their sound into his signature soul-infused beats and dusty drum grooves. PRhyme’s debut self-titled album featured compositions from producer and composer Adrian Younge and high caliber features from Black Thought, Ab-Soul, Mac Miller, Common, Jay Electronica, Schoolboy Q, and Killer Mike. Rolling Stone called it one of the Best Rap Albums of 2014 and XXL praised it as “a re-energized and reborn sound.” This time around, Premier tapped Philadelphia composer and producer Antman Wonder to provide original music for Royce and Premier to sample.

Kxng Crooked Announces New Album & Releases First Single “Truth” feat. Royce 5’9″

 

Almost a year ago (11-11-16 to be exact) today, Kxng Crooked released a manifesto in the form of Good Vs Evil.  To rewind, Donald Trump had just been elected the 45th President in one of our most controversial presidential elections, divisiveness infiltrated every aspect of the populous, governmental agencies were willingly pumping poison into its communities, protests were raging in the streets, unprovoked police brutality was rampant (with zero accountability) and the societal divide widened with each passing day.

With a seemingly basic disregard for human rights, it was understood that we were living in a complicated and dangerous time.  People were in search of answers and a unifying message; Kxng Crooked’s Good Vs Evil could not have appeared at a more needed time as he delivered a project that stared into the face of oppression and struck a nerve.

Though it seems counter-intuitive and unimaginative, the year that has passed in-between has led us even further astray.  In 274 days, The Donald Trump era has borne witness to fake news, championing racism, bigotry, separatism, sexism and a general contempt for rule of law.  Further, he continues his quest to eradicate the health care of millions, advocated a foreign government meddling in an election, diminished our standing in the International community and has displayed more concern about selling pumpkin MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats and the behavior of NFL football players; then he has for the well-being of the citizens he is sworn to uphold.

Welcome to the new normal!

Thankfully, Kxng Crooked’s Good Vs Evil 2: The Red Empire picks up right where its predecessor left off. On the surface, Good Vs Evil 2 is the epitome of woke; a politically and socially conscious decree that demands to be heard and processed.  At its core, it’s designed to bethe theme music that Colin Kapernick and a generation can proudly knell to.

“When I first started creating Good Vs Evil I wondered how I would get my audience to listen to a project covering social injustice, racism, classism etc. in a climate where most rappers are making music about poppin’ Xanax and drinking lean” Crooked commented. “My immediate afterthought was who gives a fuck what other artists are doing, Hip-Hop needs this album! Look at the world today. We have a president whose ex-wife is on record saying she was raped by him. We have police officers who are on film killing unarmed citizens with no consequences. We have entire cities like Flint, MI drinking poisonous water. Good Vs Evil 2 is just as necessary as part one. From the production to the content to the music sequencing to the artwork everything is designed to provoke thought. And the shit slaps too!”

Good Vs Evil 2 is just as incendiary, authentic and unapologetic as its predecessor and that is evident by the projects cover art and first single, “Truth” (Why You Mad) as one half of Slaughterhouse (Crooked and Royce 5’9”) reunite to drop bars on the right wing. “There are a few messages I wanted the artwork to communicate” Crooked asserted.  “One is the thin line between good and evil. Sometimes there’s light in villains and darkness in heroes. I also added a figure that may be a bit controversial and that’s the widely accepted image of Jesus Christ. No shot at Christians, but that particular image of Christ symbolizes death, slavery and colonization to many. Most American slave masters and the Klu Klux Klan members hang that image on their walls and truly believe themselves to be Christians. I’m trying to open doors to taboo conversations. And lastly, the Trump figure is “Red Hood,” the albums new enemy of justice being inducted into the Tyrants club and kneeling like the football players for what he believes in; hatred and division.”

 

No Justice, No Peace!
