DJ Premier & Royce Da 5’9″ Announce New Group Album Under The Name PRhyme

“I want people to appreciate the fact that we didn’t compromise in lieu of the environment. In order to try to change the way that people digest music, we had to take a leap of faith,” says Royce.

The project will feature appearances by Killer Mike, Jay Electronica, Common, Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q, Slaughterhouse, Mac Miller and Dwele. All of PRhyme’s production will be based on the music of Adrian Younge. Premier sampled the composer’s work for the group’s soundscape.

“The bar has to be high. For this album to be another body of work and another chapter for both of our lives,” says Premier. “I’ve never sampled just one artist, I’m known for my reputation and my creativity. I wanted it to be my traditional thing where I sample everything I find, but I am really proud how the project came out and Royce is one hell of a pusher.”

“I started going through Adrian’s catalog and it was just making me a fan of his,” explains Royce. “It was really inspiring me to want to make music. As Premier started sending me music and I started writing, it was falling into place. It was making me excited about going into the studio.”
