Looking back at the 20-year hip-hop career of Royce Da 5'9" is similar to assessing Vince Carter’s 20-year NBA career: some highs, some lows, and some unexplainable shit — but when he’s on the court, you feel compelled to pay attention. Royce has ghost-written for Dr. Dre, his 11-plus mixtapes are grossly underrated, and his last three solo albums (2009's Street Hop, 2011's Success Is Certain, and 2016's Layers) were arguably better than his first three (2002's Rock City, 2004's Death Is Certain, and 2005's Independent’s Day).
