There are very few people in the world better at rapping about being better than everyone else than Royce 5’9".

A sharp contrast to the "Writer's Block" <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=163622">disco inferno</a>, Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters" glows to a much more subtle flame.
It's been a minute since its release, but Royce is still stuck on the same stanza, frustrated with reality.
The Bad Meets Evil union call upon the living legend himself, DJ Premier to give Success Is Certain's first leak a last hurrah before the album drops.
Nick Nine continues to promise a victory, this time with <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/nottz">Nottz Raw</a> in campfire storytelling session that's perfectly scripted for a HBO drama.
Royce calls on the drummer Travis Barker to assist on the intro for Success Is Certain, titled "Legendary.
Disappointed in Bad Meets Evil's <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/06/review-of-bad-meets-evils-hell-the-sequel">latest endeavor</a>.
For all of the bad blood that has poured out of Detroit, the reunion of Eminem and Royce Da 5’9” is a welcoming sign.
Because I don't recall ever seeing a unicorn in a rappity-rap video.
For possibly the first time in his career, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/royce-da-59">Royce Da 5'9</a> is noticeably in a good place.
The deadly Detroit duo delivers another one from their upcoming Hell: The Sequel EP.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=168515"> My, how things change. About this time two years ago, the then-recently-formed four-headed monster known as <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/slaughterhouse">Slaughterhouse</a> was going on a rampage, destroying anything they touched.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=195955"> <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/sir-aah">Sir Aah's</a> been on my radar for a minute.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/new-music-eminem-and-royce-59-fast-lane"> And so another leak from the much hyped, immeasurably delayed collaboration hits the e-waves. Finally, it looks like Hell: The Sequel has a definite release and the accompanying momentum. And the crowd goes wild. Right? As much as I thought I’d be first in line waiting to hear Em and Royce’s new music, none of the recent tracks have really moved me. While I’ll openly praise Nickel’s lyricism, he is one-dimensional, his hook game is way over par and he can’t craft an entire song by himself. And as great as Marshall is (or was), most of his post-hiatus music has been pretty average as well. “I’m On Everything” is no different. It starts off pretty lackluster before managing to end on a strong note, but overall isn’t anything worth dropping jaws at. The bottom line is all these songs with “legendary” collaborations seem otherworldly only on paper. In this day and age of music saturation, they’re just one-hitter-quitters, meaning you’ll hear it one time before shifting them into <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/study-81-of-itunes-collections-never-get-played">the 81% bin</a>.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/05/elzhi-halftime-video"> While it stands as the greatest Hip-Hop album of all-time to some, Illmatic is a classic to all rap fans who have experienced it. Possessing the proper amount of lyrical structure, production balance and intensity bred deep in the culture's origins, it remains a landmark album few are willing to attempt to recreate. Detroit's very own <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/elzhi">eLZhi</a> stands amongst the few and the proud, but no he's not a Marine.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/04/new-music-royce-da-59-feat-eminem-writers-block"> Long, long ago, in a high school far, far away, a friend of mine let me hear some song titled "Renegade." Only instead of Jay-Z riding shotgun, a fellow by the name of <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/royce-da-5-9">Royce Da 5'9</a> was.
<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=185485"> After previously collaborating with Royce for <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/01/trackstar-the-dj-the-smoking-section-present-royce-59-growth-patience-the-best-of-royce-volume-i">Growth & Patience</a>, Trackstar grabs The 5'9"s brother <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/kid-vishis">Kid Vishis</a> and assists in the release of Bar4Bar.
The D got bars and this much has been evident for over a decade.
