Detroit, Michigan emcee Royce Da 5’9″ released an acclaimed 2004 album, Death Is Certain. Led by the DJ Premier-produced single, “Hip Hop,” the sophomore album – and first with Koch Records (now known as E1 Entertainment) was a critical success to the Bad Meets Evil alum.
Seven years later, Royce Da 5’9″ – now reunited with Eminem, announced that his next solo album will be called Success Is Certain. Having released two studio albums since Death Is Certain, the next effort will celebrate Royce’s persistent ascent from the underground to the mainstream. There is no word yet which label will release the album, although the Slaughterhouse member confirmed the title today.
Last year, Royce released Street Hop, which was executive produced by DJ Premier.
