Delaware Hip Hop artist, Royal, has released his most versatile and vulnerable record yet. Summer on Main St. discusses his struggles, giving back to his community, and hometown stories while mashing together languages and giving a voice to other rappers.
Not only has he spent the past few years perfecting his sound, Royal also collaborated with a variety of artists including Waka Flocka, Fabolous, Yo Gotti, Meek Mill, Ryan Leslie and Tory Lanez. Regardless of the collabs, music has been a gateway to being able to help his Delaware community through scholarship donations to deserving students at his former high school.
The 10-track album, Summer on Main St. is raw and unapologetically real. Some songs focus on the luxuries of working in the music industry while in others his bars share nothing but heartfelt emotions. Royal impresses us with tracks “Letter To Cecil” and “Hall of Fame” while also sharing his striking writing abilities in “Soy Mexicano” and “Occupy Cypher”.
Something listeners can look forward to is that each track differs from one another in bars, beats and motivation. His care for the words he uses and way he emphasizes a beat is evident, showcasing how much he cares for the craft.
Summer on Main St. is just a taste of what Royal can lyrically produce with his music. Check out the full length album below:
