Wow. Thats really all I can say about this track. Eminem and Royce da 5′9 fit perfectly together and Bruno Mars does a nice job on the hook. I think this is the next “Airplanes” but with better rapping. Get used to hearing this one a lot, Em, Royce and Bruno Mars have a hit with this one.
Detroit rappers and concerned citizens united this weekend for the HEAL DETROIT RALLY, a peace/awareness rally intended to decrease violence in multiple crime-plagued hoods around the D. The rally was also fueled this year after 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones was killed by police during a search for a murder suspect.
Community activists, rappers, DJ’s, sponsors, and others involved in the event were Trick Trick, DJ Detroit Streets, Ruff Riders Bike Club, Yusef Shakur, Royce da 5′9, Al Nuke, DJ Fingers, Lodge Boyz, and Big Herc.
The event was planned by LaKeisha Harris and rapper Al Nuke after a Facebook rant about the excessive violence in Detroit and the senseless murder of the little girl. Harris, a community activist with the Heal Detroit Coalition, lured hundreds of supporters through Facebook. Al Nuke heads Operation Hip Hop, another non-profit org that tours local schools and collects donations for the needy.
It’s great to see people come together for a good cause.
Hopefully you’ve heard the audio by now, but here’s the visual for the second half of Em, Royce, and Mr. Porter going in on an Alchemist beat. Of course Eminem is the standout on this but the other 2 have some nice verses too.
Nice cut from a nice line-up. Statik seems to be coming with some heat. Talib Kweli has always been one of my favorite MC’s. Can’t wait for the new Reflection Eternal. Royce has always been sick. Check it out and let us know what you think!
“Right now, the focus is the group,” Royce explained. “I’m focused on the group in terms of the next move, like with signing. Yeah, Shady is an option, there’s a lot of great conversations being had and hopefully something like that could happen. Our goal is to put the group album on a major and get the real machine behind it so we can get that balance back in hip-hop.”
