Royce Da 5’9 & Cocoa Brovaz – Let’s Grow b/w Get Up

Production: JayDee, Hi-Tek There are few Royce songs that I don’t like. Usually they’re wack when he decides to go thug it out and kill all of us. This track didnt involve any of that, though…it was straight up lyricism and a little storytelling. He talks about Eminem in the first verse, saying “I met this whiteboy one night who turned out to be the illest mothafucka i ever heard in my life/ He took me under his wing, showed me some things/ and molded me into a pro until the flow was mean.” I like it that Royce is showing respect for someone who taught him, and one of his boys, and I think that’s mad cool. All of the verses are at a lyrical level that not many emcees ever reach, so that’s hot. The beat is crazy–better than any of the rhymes. JayDee produced a masterpiece here. In my usual fashion, I’m not gonna do an extensive review of the B-side because it’s really not bad or good. I doubt it’ll get many spins, but it’s really not a bad track. Cocoa Brovaz come nice with a pretty tight beat by Hi-Tek. Overall, I’d say this is worth picking up, if only to play “Let’s Grow” over and over. [HeadLine]
