DJ Premier and Royce Da 5'9" made waves in 2014 when they teamed up as PRhyme to release their self-titled debut album. Now, four years later, the duo is teaming up once again for another album.

Set to release on March 16, PRhyme 2 will pick up where the duo left off and will feature 15 songs. Along with the announcement of the new project, PRhyme has also released the album's first single and video, "ERA" featuring Dave East.

Directed by Jacob Arden McClure, the "ERA" video tackles many of the social and political issues discussed in the songs' lyrics. Shot in a warehouse space in Los Angeles, the visuals find Premo, Royce and East surrounded by characters from different eras such as an old preacher, a riot cop, a politician, a b-boy and more.

"I pop the Ruger and pop the new some/The extra extensive extent we've gone/To send you in witness protection, exit with this throne/I can hit you niggas ex or I can get you niggas X/Or I can get you niggas XXXTENTACION," spits Royce.

East also shines over the Premo beat, which is full of the DJ's signature scratches and samples. "Raspy but I'm classy, knockin' André and Big Boi (yeah!)/OutKasts of my generation, I ain't never fit in (never!)/Now I'm blowin' sour in clubs, I could never get in (light up!)," he raps.

While it's been a while since PRhyme dropped their debut project, the duo has stayed busy, releasing new music over the years. In 2015, Royce and DJ Premier linked with Black Thought and Joey Bada$$ to drop the track "Wishin 2" and also teamed up with MF Doom and Phonte on "Highs and Lows." Both tracks are featured on the deluxe edition of PRhyme.
