Royce Da 5'9" had too much music to fit on his upcoming Layers album, so he decided to put some additional songs out via a free EP as well. "Dead President Heads" comes second on that forthcoming release, which is titled Tabernacle: Trust The Shooter.

"My original concept was to release a b-side record to coincide with the release of 'Tabernacle,'" Royce explained to The FADER in an email. "But it turned into an entire EP that was inspired by a photo my man JD took at the 'Tabernacle' video shoot. Trust The Shooter is his brand and we both thought it would be dope to give fans all new music not available on the album."

"Dead President Heads" is produced by Streetrunner and features keyboard playing from Tarik Azzouz. Listen below and watch the clip for Royce's new single, "Tabernacle." Layers arrives on April 15; preorder it here.
