In our first video edition of our popular “Spot Rusherz” column, Royce 5′ 9″ tells us the stories behind five of his most potent guest appearances on record.

“If you the kind of rapper who worries about whether you have the best verse, it’s tough,” Royce tells us. “It’s tough to rap beside Pharoahe Monch, Tariq [Black Thought], Marshal [Eminem], all of Slaughter House. My whole career is just stress, man,” he concludes with a bejeweled grin. “It’s stressful.”

Watch as he tells us about making Black Milk’s “Losing Out,” Pharoahe Monch’s “Assassins,” Denaun Porter’s “Cookin,” Ras Kass’s “Giraffe Pussy” and Joe Budden’s “Remember The Titans.”
