Royce Da 5’9″ On Success Is Certain LP

blame it on Shake May 10, 2011

During a convo with my old 9-5, Royce speaks on his upcoming album, Success Is Certain. Stating Premo will have one track, while Denaun Porter, Nottz, Streetrunner and Alchemist will handle the rest.

It’s nothin’ like Street Hop. Street Hop was just beats and rhymes. This album, it’s called Success is Certain, and it’s basically the [opposing] album to Death is Certain. ‘Cause in theory, I feel like I’m in the exact opposite position in my career that I was in at that time. And that’s all I could think to rap about back then because of what I was going through. So now, I feel a little more successful, so I’m kinda rappin’ about that. The album is speaking on triumph, overcoming adversity, defying the odds, and just talking about success. And, speaking on everything that I went through to get to this point. It’s got the same darkness as Death is Certain, but the content is brighter. No Pop beats.

Nickel also speaks on his issues with Canibus, Bad Meets Evil and more. Check the full write up here.
