Royce 5’9 – Overcomer (ft. Westside Gunn)
Royce 5’9″ prepares for the release of THE ALLEGORY, his newest full studio offering following the sensational Book of Ryan, with a controversial visual for “Overcomer,” featuring Shady/Griselda Records own critically acclaimed rapper WestSide Gunn, directed by Cricket. The powerful and artful track questions the decisions we make in life and the repercussions that follow. The Allegory will be available on all DSP platforms on February 21, 2020 via eOne/Heaven Studios, Inc.
At the same time today, Royce is featured on three (3) tracks from Eminem’s surprise release of MUSIC TO BE MURDERED BY. He appears on “Yah Yah,” featuring Black Thought, Q-Tip and Denaun Porter, “You Gon’ Learn,” featuring White Gold and “I Will,” featuring Slaughterhouse members KXNG Crooked and Joell Ortiz. With Em, his partner in rhyme, Royce adds to his production arsenal on the controversial lead single, “Darkness” and “You Gon’ Learn.”
The thought-provoking single, “Overcomer,” is the follow up to “Black Savage” which was released in November and features Sy Ari Da Kid, White Gold, CyHi The Prynce & T.I.
In celebration of THE ALLEGORY, Royce will perform in Detroit on February 20, 2020 at The Garden Theatre located at 3929 Woodward Ave.
The doors open at 7PM and advance tickets are available here.
Ticket buyers will recieve a free album download with the purchase of a ticket.
