Eminem & Royce 5'9

Right when I say I'm not gonna post for awhile I end up throwing up a bunch of stuff. I'm just not going to say anything from now on. I've been meaning to post this for a minute, some early freestyles from Eminem and Royce 5'9. I don't know where I put that 12" the two of them had on Game or else I'd throw a rip of that to go along with this, but this is right before Eminem's first LP came out in 1998. The XL freestyles are kind of short at like 3 or 4 minutes, but the Halftime freestyles run about 13 minutes, enjoy...

  1. Don't much care for Eminem or Royce, butwanted to throw ya some props on the blog in general... Some great stuff here. More old NYC radio, please (if you get a second).

  2. thanks- not a big eminem fan myself but he wasnt bad pre blowing up. i got plenty of radio stuff to come

  3. I was a fan from pre blowing up and lost all interest when he started flirting with the gangster image and seemed to be influenced by the 50 Cent flow. Thanks for those freestyles, I've been looking all over for a good quality version of tat Em & Royce freestyle, it' just too bad that they clip Royce's verse during the first beat "Themes, Dreams & Schemes". Props on posting all these freestyle.

  4. all my rips are from my own cassettes unless i mention someone else, but yeah I don't know why I cut his first verse like that. I was kind of pause happy back in the day.

  5. Can someone re-post the link, maybe in mp3 form of the freestyle Eminem and Royce did on Halftime Radio. Especially where near the end of the freestyle session Em tells Royce to "keep it going, keep it going" and Royce spits a "real" improvised freestyle rhyme that was dope. Would really appreciate it.
