Death Is Certain

Death is Certain is the second album by Detroit rapper Royce Da 5'9", released through Koch Records on February 24, 2004. Released two years after his official debut Rock City (Version 2.0), Royce spent his two year hiatus entangled in a beef with fellow Detroit natives and former allies, D12. Due in part to a battle with depression, Death is Certain features a sound considerably darker then that heard on his debut. Royce's new sound garnered him considerable acclaim for the album, with most critics calling Death is Certain his strongest effort.

The majority of the album was produced by Carlos "6 July" Broady of Bad Boy Records production team The Hitmen. Other producers featured on the album are Ty Fyffe, Rob "Reef" Teflow, Asar, Mark Bassin, and DJ Premier, who produces the album's lead single, "Hip Hop". Many Royce fans see this is his best work.
