Detroit emcee Royce the 5�9� hopes to add more acclaim to his name when he drops his next project, aptly titled Independent�s Day.
The LP will be released on the independent label MIC Records and Royce has set out to sell big numbers even though he�s not on a major.
�I�m going to put the fire on the streets to generate the steam like an Indy would, but with my team I�ll be able to sustain the heat and collect the paper of a major label,� Royce said.
Independent�s Day is more than an album title to Royce and was chosen to signify his mind state.
�All the artists chosen to be collaborators are unsigned or independent, that have been bubbling. We plan to take that underground buzz and put them over the radar.�
Guests on the album include Sara Stokes (MTV�s Making the Band), Cee-Lo Green, Yo Gotti, Juan and Kid Vicious.
Look for Royce to drop another album on July 5th and then a collaborative effort with Virginia producer Nottz called Politics later in the year.
