Usually on RapFix Live one of the guests of honor would spit some bars to end the show. Well, yesterday’s guest Royce did not, and explained why he doesn’t freestyle anymore:
“This is the segment I have to explain why I’m not rapping,” said a joking yet semi-serious Royce. “Since we’re living in the Internet era, the technological era, there used to be a point in time where I could kick a verse and I could go do tons of radio stations and kick the same verse. Since the Internet is accessible as it is, as soon as I kick a verse the verse is dead.”
Royce continued to explain further why he holds his verses for himself now. “I can’t go do it again because then I get attacked for recycling lines,” said Royce. “Since I haven’t been in the studio and I’ve been on the road so much, the only verses that I have memorized right now are verses off the Slaughterhouse album. I don’t want to say it because I’d give it away and then have to go rewrite that verse for the album.”

Say word the Magic Disc Music store still exists in Carson after all these years. I remember going there in high school to try to cop Wu-Tang Forever, only to dub a copy off my friend when I saw that Magic Disc was charging nearly twice the amount the corporate retailers were pushing it off for.
