In an interesting interview with ESPN’s Highly Questionable, Royce Da 5’9″ broke down a few stories that haven’t totally gotten huge pub over the years. As such, much of it was new info for me.
Royce first explained what partying and shooting a music video with Jerry Stackhouse was like back in ’01.
That was just the beginning as Royce then moved on to talk about the “Hi Rihanna!” shoutout that got some buzz in the 2011 BET Cypher and if they had seen each other since.
Then, most touching was the recalling of reconciling with the late Proof after a run-in with each other in Detroit led to an arrest and a night in the slammer. Interesting times back then and it’s good they made amends before Proof’s untimely murder.
Last thing: diggin’ how Bomani Jones, Dan Le Betard (and Pablo Torres filling in), and Papi are getting these hip hop interviews on ESPN. These are never really not fun.
