Royce Da 5’9” Sentenced to 1 Year in Prison

royce.jpgXXLMAG.COM has learned that Detroit rapper Royce Da 5’9” was sentenced to one year in prison at a hearing last week (September 21). While specific details surrounding the incident are still unclear, sources close to the rapper confirmed that he was convicted of violating his parole in a Michigan court. He is currently being housed in Detroit’s Oakland County jail, where he is waiting to hear about a possible appeal in the next 30 days. Royce, a former associate of fellow Detroit native Eminem, was hard at work on a collaborative album with DJ Premier at the time of his incarceration.

  • reezbo

    I think that Royce is one of the dopest emceez to ever bless the mic. That said, dude needs to realize that stupidity is not the way to go. Why in the world would you violate your parole knowing fully well what it entails? Men I ‘m tired of grown ass black males acting like retarded kids.

    royce has mad skills, but i lost alot of respect for that cat after i so beef 3, and dude ego issue, i had got the perception that dude got in the rap game, and thought he could fit in the mobster gangsta persona, which didnt fit him, because he just sounded fun style, and moved like a snake as nigga from what he did to em, after getting him a deal.

  • 11kap

    San Diego, eminem would only rip your pussy up, bitch….talking’bout some white boy is better at rap than every other rapper that ever came out. Eminem himself wouldn’t even go that far to say some ignorant shit like that. MF, you need a soundcheck!

  • san diego

    let me rephrase that all 4 of his albums went multi-platinum! ja rule (dead), benzino (dead)! eminem is king of hip hop ain’t nobody fuckin with him because they dont wanna end up like the ones mentioned…..broke with ZERO fans! now if eminem ripped the fuck outta jay-z on renegade which he clearly did, and he’s a multi-platinum artist and a great producer how is he not the best of all time????

  • john cochran

    What’s funny is that I just sat down and listened to one of his albums after my man put me on to him. He nice with the flow. Definitly some one people often sleep on. He keep pullin shit like this thouhg and its a wrap. I guess I’ll just try to find some of his old shit and be content with that. Can anybody put me on to any of his shit? Like what’s his best shit so I can try and cop up?

  • 11kap

    Eminem is the king of hip hop to a white dude, maybe, not the real niggas out here.

  • Jonnie s

    Tired of these dudes tht ride off the strength of the name. Yea royce would rip both EM and Jay, and i personally feel Jay is the worst out the 3. GUARENTEE if royce was on aftermath, or with a high profile camp, you dick riding “Rap Fans” would ber sayin royce is ill. Sadly he’s another good rapper along with Sean P thats a product of stupid muthafuckaz like the ones im seeing in here

    and stop all that gay rape shit, yall soundin like u wanna be there and watch

  • 3thirteen

    THE ONE—r u on blow or something….

    Man, all yall on here funny as hell. Who ever thinks Royce is the king of the D is DELUSIONAL. Nigga did his first video in NY. Shit if I didn’t know the nigga i would’ve swore he was from NY.

    MIC records aint runnin’ shit but their mouth. The boy gotta a nice flow but he’s from the fuckn suburbs, OAK PARK. MIKEY the CEO of MIC records is from SOUTHFIELD, yes another suburb. Dont get me wrong them niggas love to fight but when them pistols get drawn, u can call them CASPER(yes the friendly ghost)

    I didn’t not like the BEEF documentary b/c it really made Detroit look soft as fuckn wet tissue. Soon the world will c the real Detroit through a real rappers eyes, WELL I HOPE.

    All fucked up shit aside though, i hope the nigga keep his head up and them niggas in Wayne County understand the nigga is HARMLESS.lol

    Royce, take yo ass the Frank Murphy next time…….

  • Jonnie s

    3thirteen is another one of them dudes scared to knuckle up apparently. even if u not scared dude how u get at a ni99a for fightin and not runnin. I kno i aint got no interest in seeing a gun pointed in my face, bullet hit the right place and that shit is final. Yea royce talk that gun shit its tru, but its entertainment at the end of the day. Em has tlaked bout lickin off b4 too, do u say the same shit bout him? Real ni99az aint afraid to knuckle up, 8 yr olds can shoot an old man.

  • http://www.soundclick.com/rcvthamc RCV tha MC

    To the dude that said “FUCK RCV”, I didn’t mean “FUCK ROYCE” in a bad way. Royce is one of my personal favorite MC’s, and when I put that in the box I meant “damn why the fuck did you violate parole”. That’s just dumb, fuck Royce. Get it? Ok.

  • king313

    Yo Thirteen, did you hear about the incedent between mikey and his boy up at the dynasty lounge? How his bitch ass had all them dick riden niggas jump his man over that bullshit that he started? Nigga get down with royce now he got them jumpin on his boy he grew up with. When i heard about that shit its just a prime example of how niggas let money and power go to there head and do the dumbest shit. I always seen through mikey and how he uses the shit out of people to big him self up as something he’s not. Fuck him and Royce they both fake as hell

  • king313

    Whats crazy now is that of all that shit that went down at the Dynasty (Detroit death trap that had to change its name because of its bad rep, fights, shootouts, murders, and even the owner having his 3 letter t shirt wearing flunkys jump on a personal friend of mine which was his best friend, the guy he jumped is now sitting phatter than royce and his bitch as combined lol.

  • timsams

    Hey king, I know what happened and i’ll say this the best I can witout cursing. I know Mikey personally, and yes he has changed. I know this is suppose to be about Royce, but I’m writing this in response to what you wrote, and also I have seen how Mikey has changed. We went to school together, and he is arrogant as hell. I think jumping in the music business with Royce has also done alot to his character. I know about what happened that day at the Dynasty also, and it was pretty fucked up. The bad thing about it was this. People probably only hear about what ole boy did to make Mikey what to jump him, but they dont know about what ole boy did, to make him do what he did to Mikey you here me? In other words, what did Mikey do to ole boy to make him want to retaliate on Mikey that way. I know they was best friends to. I seen them together more than I seen Mikey with his wife or his brothers. Judging by Mikey’s character, and what I heard, Mikey is just a jealous nigga man. He played his boy wrong and the only reason he fuckin with Royce was because of some shit with Proof. I won’t get into detail in respect for Proof (D12) but it was a shady day.

  • san diego

    11kap em doesnt say hes the best….”i just shit it better than 90% of you rappers out there….” “dont ever in your life try to knock the truest/ i spit the illest shit ever bitch drive me to it” then you went on to say a white boy ain’t better than the “other rappers” one of the reasons why em is the best is because he’s white you idiot. thats what makes him so crazy cause he’s white and he rips mc’s to shreds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • REAL TALK

    Em definatly cums hard..espcially wen he featured on tracks..he da top 3 dear or alive Jay, Biggie n Em..in no particular order..jus listen to da Dead Wrong remix..damn..I int gon say he was betta den BIG but he KILLED DAT SHIT..

  • REAL TALK

    o yea stay up Royce..jus hope u dunt attract 2 many niggas

  • 3thirteen

    Royce can probably hang w/Em and Jay to a certain point lyrically but he doesn’t have enough behind him, meaning a true background of where u come from, nobody knows….we know were Em is from, and we know where Jay is from. Where is this nigga royce from? So that’s when the real detroit cats be like King of Detroit, nooooooooo, cant be!!!! He has the potential lyrically but until niggas know where u from they wont respect u. Thats just my opinion, me being a nigga from the suburbs and all.lol

    JonnieS, i fail to understand ur judgement of me when u dont know me pimp. I guess antagonize me for speakin the truth. Knuckle up, me…naaaah That’s why i moved to the suburbs across the street from U to get away from that shit;).

    Like i said, there is no king here in the D. All the kings i KNow are dead and the ones that claim to be king wont be here long either. Royce, will be home, and Mikey will still be mikey. Honestly, im no posting nothing i cant say to there face…..
    As far as the Dynasty lounge thing, it speaks for itself……

Royce is an ill mc probably a top ten….hes dope and yea he’ll rip jay and em (both great)…ill emc’s are nas, jay, em, krs, common, TALIB, i.technique,rassy,guru,OC, mos def, now what they all have in common…THEY KNOW HOW TO WRITE MUSIC!!!……much love to royce…anything i said was my own opinion say all the shit you want it aint gonna change it….peace

  • 3D

    john cochran, his best album is “Death is Certain” the source gave it 4 mics back when it came out but was worth 4.5 mics. He worked with July 6, who produced a lot on Biggie’s “Life After Death”. He is one of the most underrated rapper these days. With that being said, I’m from and am still in detroit! Royce is not! He from the suburbs directly across from detroit on the other side of 8 mile, Oak Park. That nigga used to always claim he was from the d til he started havin problems wit us for claimin our city. He got set straight so all is cool and we don’t mind him claimin it no more really since it is right across the street. But even bein right across the street, the grass get greener and cleaner (yall kno what I’m sayin). But yea it was just a parole violation and the D got luv for him cuz he a cold emcee and all is well. Listen to that album I mentioned, and if u still doubt his skills than shit idk what to say. And he ain’t the king but he is well respected by other rappers in our streets, besides his cocky attitude. He humble around the real niggaz that rap and move that weight around here.

  • K. Chilla

    Look, honestly none of yall really know what u talking about. R 5 9 is a dope lyricist period. I know the man, and he aint tryin to be nobody’s gangsta, he just tryin to provide for his fam by doin what he loves. Yea he from Oak Park, but he said it: “My name is nickel/im from the suburbs/ but its only a ten minute drive to come and get you.” This nigga knows what haters be sayin in the streets, but he aint worried about it, cuz it busters like all yall that keep his name buzzin, and ultimately keep him paid. Okay, so the nigga fucked up and caught a case, but he bouncin back, and got mad shit in store for anybody doubtin him. Im from the D, and it aint nobody ther spittin it more raw than this nigga (including Em), i been listening since his very first songs, and anybody can see nobody flows wit more honesty, conviction, or insight. Royce- top 10 dead or alive….Stay up boy
