100GrandRoyce is an emerging voice in the New York Hip-Hop scene, his star will only grow with the release of his latest project “Prodigal Sun” produced by one of NYC’s top producers 183rd.
Prodigal Sun is a natural progression from Royce’s last project “Nice Guys Finish Last,” but Royce felt like there was a void in the “soul” department of music right now and 183rd was the prefect producer to provide that sound. “183rd knew exactly what I was looking for”.
“It’s more than just money death and jail in the streets and I wanted to paint that picture. What some people don’t know is me and 183rd have worked on some of my earliest projects, even being in one my first videos “The Campaign.” I knew the sound I wanted for this project and it was as simple as a phone call and with that we knocked the project out in about a week and a half.”
Their chemistry is reignited on the 6 track project which is produced entirely by 183rd. You can’t help but feel like you’re listening to a classic New York City project when bumping the tape due to the beautiful samples and jazz sounds used by 183rd and gritty lyricism provided by 100GrandRoyce.
Leading up to the release of the project, Royce has been working on a short documentary which will be released in the future along with some visuals. Royce also linked up with @squatdeadface and @Bohemian.harlem.nyc to do a limited edition “Prodigal Sun” Merch capsule to go exclusively with the project and the launch of my his new website 100GrandRoyce.com
Although “Prodigal Sun” is 100GrandRoyce first project of 2020, he plans to keep his foot on the gas with another stream of tag team EPs with some dope producers, titled “Rent Money” & “Free Soup” as well a sequel to Nice Guys Finish Last.
