‘PRhyme 2’ Will Reportedly Be Released on March 16
For the past two years, Royce da 5'9″ and DJ Premier have been talking about and teasing the release PRhyme 2, the sequel to their late 2014 debut as a duo.
Finally, at long last, we have a date: March 16, 2018.
The album, which will feature production by Premier and the sample work composer and producer AntMan Wonder, is currently available for pre-order on Fat Beats. According to the veteran hip-hop distributor, the full tracklist, artwork and guest features will be announced the first week February.
Considering their debut was the most hip-hop album 2014, expectations are quite high for the pair's highly-anticipated follow-up—and deservedly so. We're talking about one the greatest hip-hop producers all-time, with an unimpeachable track record behind the boards, and a rapper that is so feared by his peers, JAY-Z had Eminem remove Royce's verse from “Renegade” because he likely didn't want to be embarrassed by two MCs.
DJBooth has reached out to PRhyme's publicist for comment.
