Once done watching the video, make sure to cop PRhyme.

PRhyme 2

When it was announced that Premo would be linking up with Royce Da 5’9” for a project, I was reminded of Cormega and Large Prof’s recent project that was absolutely amazing. It looks like this MC/Producer thing is the way to go recently, and I’m definitely not mad at that. Royce went in on this track like he really has something to prove to anyone standing in his way. Premo did what Premo does best scratching the chorus and adding cuts. Enough with what I gotta say, take a listen to “Courtesy” below and be on the lookout as this project will be a must listen.
