Royce da 5’9” proved that he is not only an excellent rapper and witty lyricist, he also is an excellent and interesting producer – with a number on Eminem’s recent album “Music To Be Murdered By”.
However, he humbly refuses to take all credits for this achievement, citing White Gold as a reason why Marshall has chosen “You Gon’ Learn” at all:
He’s the reason why Em picked the beat. I played it for him and he really loved the hook. He was like ‘who is that on the hook?’ I told him it was my guy, and he was like that’s crazy. I think the hook is what made him like the beat. Then I rapped on it – I had to get on it. I rapped on it, he put his verse on it and did the arrangement, and the rest is history.
Watch Royce talking about that on SiriusXM back then when guests were still allowed in the studio:
