Royce Da 5’9” made abundantly clear in his summertime project The Book of Ryan that he wants to tell his story, no frills attached. In this powerful visual accompanying the powerful 2018 album, Royce tells the story of how substance abuse took a toll on his family.

Present day Royce literally takes a stroll down memory lane as the audience is presented flashbacks of the childhood times that haunt him till this day. A master emcee must always be a master storyteller, and our boy Royce ticks both boxes flawlessly.
