Royce 5’9” has reinvented himself once again and straight snapped with his new video for Black Savage featuring Sy Ari Da Kid, White Gold, CyHi The Prynce & T.I. Beginning the video off with a quote from James Baldwin, Royce’s agenda is clear from the gate. “You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with it’s idea of you.”
Spitting straight bars that teach, Royce’s level of lyricism steps up another notch as he continues to propel with each project.
Vulgar like Akinyele, focus like Dr. Sebi
We did it your way but now the culture is boppin’ to our Sinatra medley/
I’m limitless energy, they gimmicks and imagery
Kendrick, Cole and the Kennedys, lyrical Holy Trinity
General of the city, they into promoting silly beef
Straight out of black gangsta flick, the men appear in a glamorous private party adorned with a African choir. The men bring soul and bars back to hip hop on the melodic production. Sy Ari Da Kid kills the chorus while CyHi The Prince brings the delivery he’s known for.
‘Huh, they tryna take the soul out of soul
Niggas say I sold out, I never sold out a show’
And T.I. reaches back into his Troubleman persona to boast of his black greatness. Check out the video below!
