Royce 5’9 is a machine that stays in the studio night and day. For proof, look no further than the amount of music he has ready for release over the next year months.
Not will he be releasing the highly-anticipated project from his Slaughterhouse crew (Crooked I, Joell Ortiz and Joe Budden) in July, but he’s also prepping the release of his long-awaited solo album, Street Hop, in September.
The album, executived produced by DJ Premier, has already generated overwhelming critical accolades just from the release of street-singles such as “Shake This” and “Part Of Me”.
However, before his official solo release, Royce is planning to drop a Digital only EP entitled The Revival, which will include new tracks from Royce’s Street Hop LP along with a new unreleased Slaughterhouse track. Royce will also be debuting a new single and video for The Revival in the very immediate future.
Likewise, each member of Slaughterhouse will also be releasing a new digital EP throughout the month of July, and each release will contain a new Slaughterhouse track that will not be included on their debut.
“I’m looking forward to releasing new music and touring this summer. Street Hop has been in the works for almost two years and the release date will be here before you know it,” said Royce. “The Revival will give people a chance to see what I’ve been up to and what to expect from the album. The month of July will belong to Slaughterhouse with the release of our full length group album and solo EPs from me followed by Joell, Joey and Crooked. We will show fans why we are the ones to watch.”
The entire Slaughterhouse collective will be hitting the road this summer for the Rock The Bells tour, hitting Chicago, Detroit, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles among other stops.
Street Hop is due in stores September 22, but before that, The Revival will hit the web months earlier on July 7, followed by digital EPs from the other members of Slaughterhouse.
