Royce da 5'9" is atop the Billboard charts for the first time in his career. The Detroit rapper's new album Layers landed at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Before the release of Layers, Royce da 5'9" had not reached higher than No. 7 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The Slaughterhouse member's new LP has received critical acclaim, so it's nice to see it be a strong sales performer as well. The "Boom" rapper previously spoke to XXL about how this album displayed his complete artistry.

"One of my layers is PRhyme, another is Slaughterhouse, another is Bad Meets Evil," Royce said. "All of these different styles and sides of my creativity come out in different ways and different groups, and this is basically me peeling back all the layers and giving you every side of me as Royce da 5’9” the solo artist in 2016. This is the complete artist."

With the successful release of Layers behind him, Royce da 5'9 just hit the road for a big North American tour in support of the album. Check out the full list of remaining dates below.
