Royce Da 5'9's new album Layers is available today (April 15), and the Detroit-born rhymer took the stage at SOBs in New York City to celebrate the project's release.

Proving he's still one of the best on the mic and live and direct, Royce rocked the crowd at the packed venue into the wee hours--with a little help from his friends.

Shout-out to Smoke DZA and Styles P.
