NEW MUSIC: @RoyceDa59 x @BlackThought x @AgentSasco – Rap On Steroids


Last night, Detroit Rapper Royce Da 5’9″ premiered his “Trust The Shooter EP” with fans rejoicing. With a 12 track set, many were prepared for deadly bars. What we didn’t expect was “Rap On Steroids“, a track that features Philly’s own Black Thought…and Jamaica’s own Agent Sasco! Produced by Jahlil Beats, Royce delivers hard punches to the gut, Black Thought sends jabs to the ribs and Sasco delivers the uppercuts with his Dancehall delivery. A surprise to many as Sasco has been making moves on the low over the years, although I wish he dropped 16 or even 32 bars. Maybe Royce has a few tricks up his sleeve on his upcoming “Layers” album.
