There are two downsides to this pretty great DJ Premier remix of Royce Da 5’9″‘s “Writer’s Block.” The first is that Eminem doesn’t really do much on here other than some ad libs and the hook. And the second? Well, it’s that this track pretty much makes you realize who picked all those sub-par beats on Royce and Em’s Bad Meets Evil project, Hell: The Sequel. Yeah, it had to be Em. I mean, you have to imagine he has the funds to purchase a DJ Premier beat, but for whatever reason he hasn’t. And, sadly, the only way we’re hearing them on the same track is on “Writer’s Block,” which is admittedly dope but not what it could have been.
You can stream the remix below. Royce’s Success Is Certain drops tomorrow, Aug. 9.
