Royce da 5’9″ has openly called Book of Ryan, his seventh studio album, the most important project of his career. And rightfully so, the 20-song release fits the bill. Featuring guest appearances from Eminem, J. Cole, Marsha Ambrosius, Boogie and more, Book of Ryan finds Nickel treating this full-length like the pages to his personal journal, as he ruminates and illustrates via razor-sharp lyricism. Expect this album to make the year-end ‘best of’ lists.
