Royce Da 5’9” is an underground rap sensation who is getting some mainstream credibility with Eminem and their project Bad Meets Evil.
Judging from his song “Life,” Royce should have been famous a long time ago. His song for his son, explaining the cold hard reality of life and all it’s subsequent joys is an emotional masterpiece:
This is life/Yo I don’t care, I don’t care if this song don’t sell one copy/That’s not even what it’s for/It’s for you, my boy/This is life
