Hear Eminem And Royce Da 5’9″ Freestyle On The Radio In 1998

em royce 59

In 1998 Eminem was still relatively unknown, making the local rounds in Detroit doing freestyles and battling rappers. On September 23, Em and Royce rolled up to WNYU to spit rhymes on DJ Riz and DJ Eclipse’s show, and though you may recognize some of their bars from “Scary Movie” and “Nuttin To Do,” it’s still remarkable to hear these two spit before the fame. Check it out below around the hour and 25 minute mark, but don’t fast forward too far – Mixcloud doesn’t let you rewind.
