Royce has recently set down with Complex magazine where he talked about the new album, The Allegory, including “Perspective” skit with Eminem. Royce says:
“It was a conversation that he and I were having. We were talking on the phone about a few big issues. When we were done talking, I was like, “Yo, man, if I sent you a beat, you think you can re-say everything that you just said to me?” And he was like, “Well, I don’t really remember everything I said, but I could try.” I sent him a beat, and then he just started talking on it. I told him, “Be free with it. Jump all around if you need to. Just be as scatter-brained as you are when we’re talking on the phone.”
“Me and Marshall, we have a lot of deep conversations. He’s at that level of fame where it seems like sometimes people forget that he’s human, and forget how normal he is, and forget how much respect he has to the craft and for the art. And just how socially aware he is. As a very important white artist in hip hop, he realizes the social responsibility that he has. And I think he expressed that.”
