Cocaine – Royce Da 5’9″

“I’m proud to say that I’m an addict who inherits your Pain...” -- Royce Da 5'9"

I don’t think there will ever truly be a G.O.A.T. but if there ever was, Royce Da 5’9” would have to be in the conversation.

Royce’s Book Of Ryan is probably the best book you could read that isn’t in print.  That’s because the nuanced details he drops within each and every track requires the utmost of attention.  To solidify its place as one of the best rap albums ever, Royce draws on very real experiences from his life, predominantly the tough atmosphere he grew up in.

With that being said, here’s a standout track from that project (and that’s saying something since every track holds its own).  With a video that succinctly presents the topic at hand, the man born Ryan details his father’s woes with cocaine and how he ultimately beat it.
