37. Royce Da 5'9''
Trust me im as live as it gets
A couple of years ago i woulda told you Royce could do no wrong...well a few years have passed by and ive been proven wrong time and time again. Royce is another guy who is falling down my list at the speed of light. each year, each project he falls deeper into his self-loving, gun toting, dick-referencing fest. i just cant stand it anymore...the same guy who made "Boom" is making joke songs and just not taking it serious anymore. he thinks he's as dope as he could be, but he's not and he keeps coming up short now. Bar Exam 3 was the nail in the coffin for me. so if he isnt able to outdo that on his next release i wont be listening anymore..
Prior to the falloffs Royce was one of the most ferocious yet in the pocket lyricists i had heard since maybe Nas. He had the multi syllable flow that rivaled EM, he had stories that could rival Ghost/Rae, he had radio friendly songs that went under the radar; i mean the guy can do just about anything on the mic. and i think thats why he's fallen off so bad, he thinks he can simply say anything and it will work but thats not the case.
i'd rather an Avg Mc stay consistent or slightly get better than have a great MC fall off greatly in a matter of seconds. thats why he's fallen off my list so far.
his strengths are in the songs i'll list here.
^he MURDERS d12 on here, esp Bizarre haha
