Fans of Royce da 59 will get more than an earful of new music as the Detroit lyricist gears up to unleash a slew of material for eager listeners.
Royces first release will be the digital only EP The Revival.
The offering will include songs from the rappers upcoming album Street Hop as well as a new unreleased track from the group Slaughterhouse.
According to Royce, The Revival will be the first in a series of digital EPs released from the Slaughterhouse camp as Royce and fellow members Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Joe Budden prepare for the July release of the super groups self-titled debut album.
The Revival will give people a chance to see what I’ve been up to and what to expect from the album, Royce stated. The month of July will belong to Slaughterhouse with the release of our full length group album and solo EP’s from me followed by Joell, Joey and Crooked. We will show fans why we are the ones to watch.
In addition to The Revival, a new Slaughterhouse song not featured on the groups album will be featured on each members solo digital EPs throughout July.
The arrival of the Slaughterhouse album and The Revival serve as preparation for Royces Street Hop.
The rappers fourth album, which will be executive produced by DJ Premier, concludes a lengthy process spanning almost two years.
To further anticipation for his new releases, Royce will spend the summer on the road with Slaughterhouse as part of the Rock the Bells tour.
A new single and video for The Revival is set to debut in the coming weeks.
Royce da 59s The Revival is slated to be released July 7 to all major digital outlets, while Street Hop hits stores on September 22.
