Though Eminem didn’t exactly appear on The Allegory’s  tracklist, Eminem has indeed contributed to Royce Da 5’9’s anticipated project. Rather than laying a verse, Em came through with a spoken-word reflection on race, hip-hop culture, and the powerful link connecting the two. Though it might be disappointing for those hoping for another new collaboration between Bad and Evil, “Perspective” packs plenty of thematic significance all the same.

[Interlude: Eminem]
But you got people of all races
Like, coming together and, and
Helping shape this from the ground up
So now you got little white kids growin’ up with black idols
And you got black kids growin’ up with white idols
And you got, it-it’s just this whole mixing pot
Nothing has brought more races and more people
From all different walks of life together than hip-hop
No music has done that
I don’t think anything has done that as much as hip-hop has
So, in the same token
I can understand the frustration being that, you know
Damn near every form of, of music, period, was created by black people
So, you got Chuck Berry, you got Rosetta Tharpe
And rock n’ roll is starting to get some attention, but then along comes Elvis
And people are acting like, “Oh my God, I’ve never seen this before”
You’ve seen it before, but you might not have seen a white person do it to this level
So now, he sells the most records and people are callin’ him the king of rock n’ roll, right?
But on the flip side of the coin
If I’m a black kid, growin’ up in, let’s say the 60s, 70s, 80s, whatever, right
And I’m lookin’ on TV and nobody looks like me
And it’s very stereotypical
And I’m lookin’ at fuckin’, I’m lookin’ at toys
And they’re, and everything is white
The fuckin’ action figures are all white
The, the fuckin’ superheroes are all white
Like, maybe there’s one or two, uh, black superheroes mixed in there with mostly white
I don’t know how I’d grow up and not have a chip on my shoulder
On the other flip side of that coin
We don’t get to choose our parents, we don’t get to choose what color we’re born
It’s more about, at that point, it becomes
You’re born here, you are, you’re what color you are, you’re what nationality you are
And then it’s what you do with it, right
