Young RJ - Blaq Royalty (2xCD)
"It is written 'Change is the only true constant"...my debut album reflects that change and growth for me, musically."
Rapper/producer Young RJ has been working behind the scenes of hip-hop for a long time, but has now stepped out of the shadows and into the forefront. With a long history of production credits, and as a member of the revered group Slum Village, Young RJ now releases his debut solo album.
Blaq Royalty delivers a classic old school sound, harkening back to RJ's "Slum" days, married with a modern, radio-friendly vibe. Not to mention a bounty of A-level features on joints like "Issues" (Featuring BJ The Chicago Kid), "Wait" (Pete Rock & Boldy James"), and "Motion" (Joyner Lucas & Statik Selektah). Featuring production by Young RJ himself, as well as abandoned beats from the legendary J Dilla. A classic in the making.
