Royce da 5’9”’s new album, ‘The Allegory,’ features a medley of talent, from Griselda’s Benny The Butcher, Westside Gunn and Conway the Machine to Vince Staples to Kid Vishis. However, one of the most memorable features on the album didn’t come in the form of a rap verse. Instead, “Perspective,” a skit from Royce’s longtime collaborator Eminem, nabbed headlines for its thought-provoking commentary on race in hip-hop. On the latest episode of ‘For The Record,’ Royce sat down with Genius’ VP of Content Strategy Rob Markman and explained how the skit became part of his album. The Detroit MC also discussed why he took aim at Yelawolf on the song, “Overcomer,” and what it was like to produce his own album.
