Royce Da 5'9" 'Tabernacle: Trust the Shooter' (mixtape)
Published Mar 29, 2016We're still going to have to wait a bit before Detroit rapper Royce Da 5'9" shows us his many Layers, but the artist has offered up a few songs ahead of his next album release. You can fire up the hip-hop vet's previously promised Tabernacle: Trust the Shooter for free right now.
The collection puts together 12 tracks, including the already premiered, Streetrunner-produced "Dead President Heads." Speaking of premieres, as it were, opening number "Black History" finds Royce detailing his early days over a beat supplied by the legendary DJ Premier, making the tune an off-the-books PRhyme jam.
Other beat merchants involved in the project include Jake One, Nottz, Mr. Porter, Jahlil Beats and more.
Throughout, Royce Da 5'9" talks losses and defeats over the brass bam of "Wait," offers thick-necked flows alongside Assassin on "Rap on Steroids," and teams up with Smoke DZA for the smooth but siren-slathered title track.
You can stream or download Tabernacle: Trust the Shooter down below. As previously reported, the mixtape precedes Royce Da 5'9"'s Layers LP, which drops April 15 via his own Bad Half Entertainment.
