After shattering expectations for his massively bootlegged 2002 debut, Rock City (which was refurbished, re-titled and officially released Stateside as Rock City V.2.0) and on the heels of two buzz-setting mix tapes, Build & Destroy and M.I.C. Mixtape Vol.1, Royce Da 5’9” released his highly-anticipated “true” sophomore LP, Death Is Certain on February 24, 2004.
In the ever-changing landscape of Hip-hop, only a few things remain a constant with one of them being our unwavering love for the underdog. And through a turbulent roller-coaster ride of personal trials and label changes Royce has proven that he is a true survivor. Fueled by his passion for Hip-hop and a yearning to once and for all shed light on the events and circumstances that have caused so much turmoil (including a well-publicized beef with pop music’s biggest “Shady” sensation), With Death Is Certain, Royce drew back the curtain and let down his guard for one of the most revealing and honest LP’s bound to resonate from your speakers. Where else are you going to hear an emcee apologize to fans for his attempts to gain commercial acceptance? Or as Royce offers on “Regardless,” “I played myself for radio play/I never dance/but the skill itself is a second chance.”
