Today is a momentous occasion for Detroit-bred emcee Royce Da 5'9". Earlier this morning, VEVO premiered not one but two videos featuring the underground hip-hop firebrand.
The first is a video for "Writer's Block," the Eminem-assisted single from Royce's recently released solo album, Success Is Certain. Not content to make a video for the album track alone, Royce's clip switches gears at the halfway point into the horn-blasting lowend of the DJ Premier "Writer's Block" remix, which made the rounds earlier this month and is featured on the exclusive iTunes version of Success Is Certain.

Los Angeles rapper Sozay releases the 4th and final single, "Higher" feat. Lupe Fiasco & Corey F.A.M.E. from his forthcoming mixtape 'Dance With The Devil'. Sozay enrolls Chi-Town's prodigal son, Lupe Fiasco, on this track which showcases their lyrical acrobatics over a laid back synth beat. The track also features Inglewood's very own Corey F.A.M.E. who compliments the two emcees nicely on the song's hook.
The mixtape, hosted by Black Wall Street's Nu Jerzey Devil, is scheduled to drop August 30, 2011. 'Dance With The Devil' features production from Lex Luger as well as guest appearances by Pusha-T, Ace Hood, Lupe Fiasco, and Tech N9ne.
