It’s been a successful year for Royce Da 5’9 thus far, so it’s only right for him to live like he doesn’t have a care in the world. With his Layers album still running wild in playlists across the world, Royce recently got in the studio with Key Wane to celebrate his life as a “carefree black man.”
Wane, who has concocted major records for Beyoncé, Drake, and Big Sean, opens the record with somber R&B vocals. Once the melodic snares, keys from the piano, and a hypnotizing bass line pick up, Wane rips his verse before Nickel Nine shoots off an array of intricate bars — and a face-paced flow that represent their laid-back thoughts on life at the moment.
Listen to Key Wane and Royce Da 5’9 on their new song “Carefree Black Man” below.
