Royce da 5'9" is dropping his new album Book of Ryan, featuring a new Eminem and King Green collabFriday. Today, we get that track and its official video.

Peep director James Larese's "Caterpillar" up top.

"I just want the fans to hear my evolution as an artist as well as me as a man and learn from my mistakes," Royce said of his new album in a press release Thursday. "I think they got a little bit of that with Layers, but Book of Ryan is me letting it all out."

With "Caterpillar," specifically, fans will surely note that this marks the first time Em has thrown down a verse for a solo Royce album.
