Royce Da 5’9 has been one of Hip-Hop’s top wordsmiths for some time now, and arguably made a case for himself being the best to do it with the release of his sprawling Bar Exam 4 mixtape from 2017. While the Detroit lyricist has been candid in the past about his personal life on wax, his latest album, Book Of Ryan, is his most revealing yet and fans on Twitter are ecstatic.
Book Of Ryan is Royce’s seventh studio album, and his second release year after dropping Prhyme 2 alongside DJ Premier this past March. Boasting production from Antman Wonder, S1, DJ Khalil, and Mr. Porter among others, it also marks the first time Royce has appeared on a track with Eminem on a project not connected to their Bad Meets Evil group efforts with the track “Caterpillar.”
