New Music: Lazarus – “Underdog” Feat. Royce Da 5’9″
Detroit has been a land-mine of talent, especially in recent years with the likes of Slum Village, Big Sean and DeJ Loaf getting national attention. And then there’s the veteran thrown holders of Detroit, Royce Da 5’9” and Eminem, collectively known as Bad Meets Evil. Eminem and Royce have transcended their city and are rightfully regarded among the best lyricists in the Hip Hop world.
In the midst of his current projects with Slaughterhouse, DJ Premier and the soundtrack for “Southpaw,” Royce Da 5’9” has decided to collaborate with Russell Simmons’ rising star and protege Lazarus. The track is called “Underdog.” The legendary Chuck D of Public Enemy, introduces this track.
Lazarus is an emcee with much eloquence, energy and charisma. This remarkably talented emcee brings the aggressiveness of 2pac, the lyrical genius of Eminem, a cadence like Nas and vocabulary like the Wu-Tang. “Underdog” relates to the everyday common man, yet delivered in a very uncommon way. The song is lyrically compelling. After one listen, you will want rewind and dissect each and every bar.
