Royce 5’9 & Conway The Machine Make Other MCs Sick With Ill Rhymes (Video)
In May, producer and DJ Green Lantern’s skills were heard on Conway The Machine’s Reject On Steroids project, which featured a collaboration with Royce 5’9. On “iLL,” Conway and Royce trade bars that should make lesser MCs sick to their stomachs, each rapper delivering a punishing verse that showcases their respective talents. Conway and Green Lantern both rep New York state, via Buffalo and Rochester, respectively. But the two took a trip to the Motor City to not only visit Royce in his hometown, but to lend just the right tone for the trio’s first music video together.
Today (August 8), the three minds behind the killer track are back in video form, taking to the streets of Royce’s native Detroit, Michigan to deliver some haunting imagery. Between the neglected warehouse, deserted streets, glitchy camera work, and the ominous nature of the song, “iLL” complements the raps with a dark, brooding scene of urban decay. Of course, The D is just that kind of town.
Earlier today, Heads were treated to yet another injection of Royce in the form of a new heatrock from Tech N9ne, “Barely Human,” a lyrical diatribe that makes it clear the two MCs are not of this Earth.
