Royce Da 5’9″ – Perspective ft. Eminem
Royce Da 5’9″ comes through with anew tune titled “Perspective,” featuring Eminem. The Shady Records Rapper delivers a two-minute monologue about race relations in hip-hop and the wider music industry, opining about white people’s role in both popularizing and co-opting styles of music pioneered by black artists. Em came through with a spoken-word reflection on race, hip-hop culture, and the powerful link connecting the two.
This is hardly the first time Eminem has addressed race issues in his music. Although Em is widely considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, his outsized and long-lasting commercial success is still often attributed to his race.
