Royce Da 5’9″ on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on November 26th, 2009 by Hyphen

You might recall that Slaughterhouse recently dropped by the Sound Session studio, but soon after, Royce Da 5’9″ returned for another show in Seattle and came through solo.  We covered a ton of topics in the 3 part conversation so I decided to put the full video online for y’all to enjoy.

Shout to Royce, easily one of the most down to earth and talented artists that we’ve had on the show.  When I was a high school kid losing my mind to all his verses in the late 90′s, I never would have thought I’d have the opportunity to kick it with him a few times.  Craziness.  Go cop Street Hop immediately and peep below for the interview.

Part 1:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • Reception of the Slaughterhouse project
  • Familial relationship of the group
  • Future of Slaughterhouse
  • Earliest memories of Eminem

Part 2:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • Working with Eminem as part of Bad Meets Evil
  • Learning recording techniques from Em
  • His favorite MC’s
  • Detroit’s knack for producing dope rappers
  • His thoughts on J. Cole

Part 3:

(watch on HyphenTV)

  • The Charles Hamilton/J Dilla fiasco
  • His current relationship with Dr. Dre
  • His new Street Hop album
  • What he has left to prove in the game
  • Future Bar Exam mixtapes

If you would prefer to just listen to the discussion and toss it on your mp3 player, here’s the audio of the full interview:
