“Layers,” the title track off of Royce’s forthcoming album, has each rhymer putting their best foot forward with rhymes about social issues, conspiracy theories and sex.
Pusha T is up first on the track as he rhymes about being inconsistent. “Tug of war and my mind’s like a clash of the titans / Thoughts contrast so it’s layers to my writin’ / God fearin’, but I’m God fishin’ / Yeah, God hearin’, but I’m gone fishin’ / I’m an artist, drug dealer, foreign car keys / Drop jewels so these falcons like the Maltese,” he raps that he has a “burner on my waist” but also yells “stop the violence.”
Royce serves up some rhymes in the next verse as he says “Them n—– wanna see me runnin’ / they know I won’t / They say misery loves company / No, I don’t.” Sick. Ricky Rozay closes out the track with some cocky rhymes. “I own 50 homes and want to get 50 more / Counting this fast money and f—— my bitches slow,” he raps.
The haunting track comes from producer Mr. Porter. New York fans will likely get to see the song performed live as Royce 5’9″ is set to take the stage at SOBs on April 14 before his album drop son the following day.
