  2. I really understand, Royce! Also, that man has me intrigued. Saying ‘Allegory’ is like Taratino’s first film. Masterclass. Props to, Adam, too. Interviews are not easy. Especially, first time.

  3. I’ve been waiting on a long format Royce interview the past year and right after i said that on Instagram he posted the picture of him on this podcast like he read my mind. The mental growth as a person and in his music since getting sober might be the most telling when it comes to the effects alcohol and drugs has on our creativity because he has always been a top tier lyricist but since the PRhyme projects to Layers then the Book of Ryan and now The Allegory his level of creativity has grown off the charts as well as including actually making his own beats now after 20+ years in the game. My personal favorite artist category by category he’s at the top of it all. Congratulations and thank you for this conversation 🙏🏼
