This is a classic by Royce Da 5’9″, produced by DJ Premier. “Boom” to me is an all time classic, an exceptional lyricist and one of the best producers working together – the outcome is masterful.
Boom samples various songs including “Afro Puffs” by former Death Row Records artist Lady of Rage.
Royce is currently in the group Slaughterhouse (along with Joell Ortiz, Crooked I and Joe Budden) and has previously worked with Eminem, Dr. Dre and Diddy. His fifth solo album is due to be released at the end of this month (25 September 2009), called “Street Hop”.
