With Book of Ryan still in heavy rotation from 2018, Royce 5’9″ is gearing up to bust our heads open again with his upcoming album, The Allegory.
Unlike any of his previous releases, Royce will not only be rapping his ass off, but the Detroit native will also be handling the album’s production.
After kicking things off on “Black Savage” with CyHi the Prynce, Sy Ari Da Kid, T.I. and While Gold, Royce followed things up with a new track called “Overcomer” with Westside Gunn. And now, he’s unveiled the album’s tracklist and release date: February 21st via eOne/Heaven Studios.
Locked in at 22 tracks, including a handful of skits and interludes, the album comes equipped with features from Conway, Benny the Butcher, Oswin Benjamin, Kid Vishis, DJ Premier, Vince Staples, G Perico, Grafh, KXNG Crooked,Emanny, Ashley Sorrell, and Cedric the Entertainer.
