DJ Premier and Royce da 5’ 9” have such decorated solo careers that the thought of PRhyme was only a purist’s dream.
NPR called it a “hardcore rap fan’s fantasy realized” on PRhyme’s 2014 self-titled collaborative LP. Now, four years later, the highly anticipated PRhyme 2 will be released March 16. The beauty of PRhyme comes from its sample source: Premier chooses only one artist to flip their sound into his signature soul-infused beats and dusty drum grooves. This time around it’s Antman Wonder with Royce joined by a slew of high caliber featured rappers delivering bars.
