    Royce Da 5'9" is a well rounded beast throughout; and it's similar to the Bad Meets Evil EP in tone, but more expansive in ambition.

    Maybe influenced by Marshall himself, Royce has learned to channel his loquacious voracity into a controlled rage, and the end result is perhaps his most complete body of work.

    Musically, the results are a brighter, tighter, yet more elaborate version of the man's best work, with tracks like "Security" and "Merry Go Round" sounding both flashy and meaty at once.

    Success Is Certain should certainly be viewed as successful if Royce Da 5'9's goal was to rap his ass off over knocking production from legends to create an album worthy of quite a few rewinds and replays.

    Disorganized as it is, this is the environment he works best in, and Success smartly just lets him do his thing.

    Royce da 5'9" is a talented Rapper. He manages to display heavy wordplay and a deep subject matter at the same time. This might be the Rapper's strongest work and it is certainly in favour for Best Hip Hop Album of 2011. Full Review »

    This was the greatest Album of 2011. ROyce's wordplay was very clever. This album doesnt get the attention it really needs. Everybody around my town loves Royce and they keep bumpin his album. When Royce realeses his first MAJOR RECORD LABEL Album the shelves will be cleared Full Review »

    Solid production and solid tracks. One problem. Only problem is there truly is no message to his songs. Once he fixes that, you can give him the album of the year Grammy, that Eminem has longed forever. Royce Da 5'9'' is the future of rap. Full Review »
