PRhyme Links With Roc Marciano On Gritty “Respect My Gun”

It’s been nearly four years since Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier linked up and dropped their debut collaborative project PRhyme. Though they’ve continued to hint at the possibility of a sequel in the years since, it finally became a reality this week when PRhyme 2 hit streaming services. While the stars of the show are obviously the vet emcee and producer themselves, there are also some well-selected features throughout the album, including guest spots from Yelawolf, Dave East, Cee-Lo, Big K.R.I.T. and more. Roc Marciano, who shows up on “Respect My Gun,” might not be the biggest feature, but it’s hard to find a rapper whose energy is more fit for this style of rap. His calm, collected, highly technical New York bars are a perfect contrast to Royce’s more straight ahead punchlines. Add one of the grittier loops from Primo on the project, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

Quotable Lyrics:
Facts, I might air you with gats
Dump your body out on Fairfax
Played the trap, laid on the air mat before rap
I had the .44 Mag in the velour bag
Bagging bitches
Had ’em bickering back and forth
This ain’t badminton
I had to admit, that shit bad for business
