To casual mainstream rap fans, Royce Da 5'9'' is Eminem's friend and one half of the rap duo Bad Meets Evil. To those who follow his work closely, he's Detriot's most influential rapper till date.
Like his compatriots and predecessors, the Lighters wordsmith is not a stranger to dramas that comes with being a successful Hip-Hop artist. His married life, in particular, seemed to be profoundly affected by the "rapper" lifestyle.
Wife & Children
Royce and his wife were born a kindred-spirit. Together since high school, the duo - who were in the same Spanish class - bonded over their mutual love for Hip-Hop.
Once the Boblo Boat hitmaker saw his mystery wife blare out The Roots, he was confident that she was the one for him.
The duo's romance continued well after high school. And after seven years of dating, they finally tied the knot in 2002. By that time, Royce was already making a name for himself as a lyrical rapper.

Within a handful of mainstream placements, many dubbed Royce "the next big thing." To everyone's dismay, his career never lived up to the initial hype. Dejected with industry politics, he turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism.
The alcoholism, in turn, made Royce notorious infidel. Despite parenting five children - two sons and three daughters - with his wife, he harbored several mistresses.
Upon witnessing their children come of age, the Caterpiller hitmaker eventually came to a realization. With guidance from Eminem, he was finally able to acquire sobriety.
