After releasing Book of Ryan back in 2018, Royce da 5’9″ has returned with a new album titled The Allegory. The Slaughterhouse member and longtime Eminem affiliate steps out into his own as his eighth studio album also marks the first time the rapper has produced every record himself, according to DJ Booth.

In a recent interview with Big Boy, the Detroit native revealed that the album’s name comes from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, which contemplates the “respective truths” that individuals hold based on their own viewpoints.

With assists from artists like Vince Staples, G Perico, Emanny, Benny the Butcher and a monologue from Eminem on “Perspective,” listen to the 22-track album on Spotify and other streaming platforms.
