Royce Da 5’9 Delivers His Response To 2016 With A Freestyle


I’m over 2016 already, but Royce Da 5’9 couldn’t let the New Year end without giving the people his thoughts on the last 365 days. Since PHresher’s viral hit “Wait A Minute” spawned several notable remixes, Royce felt compelled to speak on what he learned about the game — and society in general — over the last year. The “bad half of the Shady vortex” went into savage mode as he shot down year-end lists across the board and clowned on thirsty MC’s who only spit for “a word from Vlad or Akademik.”

“I’m looking at your year-end list,” Nickel raps in the beginning of the freestyle. “You’re choosing rappers your friends with, who be rapping what they friends did, Toolie ratchets and extensions.”

Meanwhile, the Detroit native name drops Funk Flex, Soulja Boy, and even his home invader who helped ignite the social media craze over the #SouljaBoyChallenge. Royce also rehashes Wale’s “Tammy Lahren” line in his new song “Smile” and labels Charlamagne Tha God and “Tammy” aka Tomi Lahren as “the odd couple,” after their heated debate about Beyoncé and the Black Panthers went viral.
