Layers – Royce Da 5’9″
If you want pure bars? Royce has them. The Detroit native unleashes them about everything as well: his life, his marriages, his battle with alcohol, nothing is off the table. Pair that with the straight spitting that the game has been desperately needing and you get Layers, one of the most solid albums of the year. To be honest, outside of Curren$y, Royce has been the most consistent this year as well dropping tapes and EPs leading up to this project. And if you want a display of true heat skip over all the songs and go straight to the title track where Royce, Pusha T and Rick Ross duel. Then run it back form the top.
