Royce 5’9″ (He will always be Royce da 5″9 to me!) is taking a short break from the supergroup Prhyme, which consists of himself and DJ Premier. The Detroit emcee, who famously said that fellow Slaughterhouse emcee Eminem couldn’t be beaten in a battle, is releasing a new solo mixtape, Tabernacle: Trust the Shooter. This is the first mixtape that Royce, who is known for his lyrical prowess, is releasing under his new imprint, Bad Half Entertainment. Tabernacle has features from: Styles P, Smoke DZA, Westside Gunn, and Kid Vishis. The impressive producer line-up includes: DJ Premier, Araab Muzik, S1, Mr. Porter, Jake One, Nottz, and Jahlil Beats.
