'PRhyme 2' Will Reportedly Be Released on March 16

After two years of teasing and talking, the sequel to Royce and Preemo's collaborative debut is finally on its way.

For the past two years, Royce da 5'9" and DJ Premier have been talking about and teasing the release of PRhyme 2, the sequel to their late 2014 debut as a duo.

Finally, at long last, we have a date: March 16, 2018.

The album, which will feature production by Premier and the sample work of composer and producer AntMan Wonder, is currently available for pre-order on Fat Beats. According to the veteran hip-hop distributor, the full tracklist, artwork and guest features will be announced the first week of February.

Considering their debut was the most hip-hop album of 2014, expectations are quite high for the pair's highly-anticipated follow-up—and deservedly so. We're talking about one of the greatest hip-hop producers of all-time, with an unimpeachable track record behind the boards, and a rapper that is so feared by his peers, JAY-Z had Eminem remove Royce's verse from "Renegade" because he likely didn't want to be embarrassed by two MCs.

DJBooth has reached out to PRhyme's publicist for comment.
