Mikey Fresh / February 16, 2011

One of the more silent members from the Slaughterhouse collective, Royce Da 5’9 is rarely seen in Youtube videos fielding questions from janky reporters. Instead, the seasoned MC chooses to play the background while keeping his pen in motion.

From a studio set in Brooklyn, VIBE was granted rare access to the rhymer known as Nickel Nine.

“Yelawolf actually just reached out, and said he had like a posse type cut for his album, that he wanted us to do, “ says Royce regarding the first possible collaboration between the two newly acquainted labelmates. “I got an album—my last independent album coming in April. I got to squeeze Yelawolf on there somewhere.”

While remaining light on the details regarding his forthcoming solo effort, the Detroit native revealed that has been holding onto a very special record that could possibly make the project.

“The first thing that popped into my mind—I don’t even want to say,” he says before being pressured into giving up the goods. “Dr. Dre and Slaughterhouse —there’s a possibility. [There’s] a song that exists but I’m still deciding if I’m put it on there or not.” —Mikey Fresh
