Another day, another fire freestyle from Royce Da 5’9″. Today (Jan. 23), Royce gives us two for the price of one when he freestyles over Migos’ “Bad & Boujee” and French Montana and Kodak Black’s “Lockjaw” for “Beats Keep Callin’.” The amount of quotable lyrics from this record is insane.
For the first half of the song, the Slaughterhouse member gets busy over “Bad & Boujee,” which is currently back to being the No. 1 record on the charts right now. Royce then transitions to a more melodic flow for the second half of the record that finds him rapping over “Lockjaw
