Win a Placement & Studio Session with Royce da 5'9"

Win a Placement & Studio Session with Royce da 5'9"

This heavyweight is a member of Slaughterhouse, one-half of PRhyme with DJ Premier, long-time Eminem collaborator, and overall solo veteran. So it goes without saying that this is a big opportunity: the winner gets to record a song with platinum-selling artist Royce da 5'9"—one to be officially released!

By Tracklib

This competition has officially ended and all further submissions will be disregarded. The winners will be announced during the Fall of 2021.

Royce da 5’9”’s latest and first self-produced album, The Allegory, gives away how much he appreciates the art of sampling. “Right now, I’m down a 1970’s soul sample rabbit hole,” he told Okayplayer upon the release of the—since then Grammy-nominated—album. Sampling 70s music by the likes of The Soul Children, Black Savage, Charlene, and Kool & the Gang on The Allegory shows just that. Royce eventually found his way to Tracklib. “Tracklib allows me to go ‘digging’ with the best of them,” he told us. “It’s a smart platform that caters to your production style. We’re not worthy at the end of the day...”

It’s now your shot to collaborate with Royce da 5’9” on an official song. So head down Tracklib’s own rabbit hole of all-original music to sample, submit your beat, and you might be the one who we connect to Royce da 5’9” for a remote studio session.

“We’re gonna do it for the culture, man. We’re going to have fun with it. So please, put your best foot forward. I’m excited. Submit your most fire shit…”

Use any Tracklib sample(s)

It's free-for-all for this competition. Submit a beat using any sample(s) from Tracklib. Whether you use music from legends like Bob James or Isaac Hayes, dig into collections like Multi-Multi Track or Choppable Soul, or flip one of the gems recently sampled by BROCKHAMPTON, Kenny Beats, and ESTA. (for Joyce Wrice featuring Westside Gunn)—the choice is all yours. As long as your beat contains one or more Tracklib samples, you can enter this competition to record a song with the one and only Royce da 5'9".

Previous competitions with Redman, Styles P and Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck led to thousands of submissions. So as advised by Royce da 5'9" himself in the video on top of this page: put your best foot forward for your most fire beat...

With a career spanning twenty-plus years, Royce da 5’9” went on from an early Eminem collaborator to becoming a hip-hop phenomenon. Most recently with this year’s Grammy-nominated album, The Allegory, and the last ten years as part of PRhyme (with DJ Premier) and the now-defunct group Slaughterhouse (together with Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz, Kxng Crooked). Not even counting the times he acted as a ghostwriter for the likes of Dr. Dre and P. Diddy early on in his career.
