Royce Da 5’9″ Talks Revival Leak & Release Dates

July 7, 2008

An internet leak of a 14-track album called The Revival started circulating the Internet this weekend, but Royce Da 5’9″ assures that it’s not the real deal.

“To the people listening, it’s not even near what the album is,” Royce told MichiganHipHop.com. “It ain’t nothing but old copies of certain shit. … Some of the songs, I still plan on using, but it’s such a rough and old copy, it’s not even worth listening to because it’s going to sound like such a different project by the time it comes out.”

Royce simply identified the culprit as “Somebody from back in the day, who thinks I don’t know who he is,” and said that he’d deal with the situation appropriately. Regardless of the leak, Royce says that Bar Exam II is set to hit the Internet as a free download on Aug. 26.

“[Bar Exam II] is all I’ve been working on lately,” Royce said. “When they actually get the project, it’ll have a whole lot of new shit on there they haven’t heard, along with the shit that’s been leaked strategically. It’s going to be every sense of a mixtape. The way real mixtapes used to be, that’s what it’s going to be.”

Royce also said that Street Hop, the much-hyped album executive produced by DJ Premier, should hit stores in late October.

Royce also spoke to MiHipHop about his recently cancelled shows in Norway. While at a Saigon show the night before Royce’s first scheduled performance, he broke his left arm while pinning a fan’s hand on the table in an arm wrestling match. In a video blog on his MySpace (http://myspace.com/roycefivenine), he explains that he had to go through emergency room surgeries to correct the issue, and the pain forced him to miss the four shows.

“They got onstage and said I wasn’t going to be performing, and since the people had seen me the night before and knew I was in town, they got mad and they started fighting in there,” Royce told MiHipHop. “It was like a big ass riot in there. So I’ve definitely got to go back.”

Royce said that the shows have already been rescheduled for September.
